Newsletter Grannies - The Art of Letting Go

Dear Granny,

many of us resolve to start anew at the end of the year, but then do not dare to take the decisive step. And yet good resolutions are a very good means of steering the ship of life in a new direction. Changes are hard work sometimes, but also glean the appropriate reward. A new start also entails the art of letting go.

Such as leaving the comfort zone, in order to live in a totally different culture, another surroundings and learn a new language, for instance as Granny Aupair. With Granny Aupair you can start anew and fulfill your dream of living abroad.

Our program is also open for younger women, who are planning a sabbatical or some time off. As a Granny Aupair you have the unique chance to discover the lifestyle of another country with free board and lodging in foreign countries near or far and to learn another language. There are so many good reasons to dare to take this step! And: Nothing takes more years off than an injection of new beginnings, not even Botox!  

Today we once again want to introduce you to two families, who would like to welcome a loving temporary Granny in the new year: Wide juicy meadows, deep blue sky and soaring mountains: On the beautiful sunny Mieming Plateau in Austrian Tirol you can enjoy the great recreational opportunities to the fullest. Whether hiking, biking, golfing or water sports there is something for everybody. In this idyllic setting, this small family (Mum and eight year old daughter) is looking for a Granny, who loves children and animals as from January, who can lend them a hand.

In the beautiful Swiss alpine upland, near Lake Zurich and in view of stunning mountains, lies the village of Schuebelbach. With a huge local recreational area offering hiking, riding and many cultural events, the site belongs to a group of villages between Zurich and Chur. Here this family of five (girl, 4 and 2 boys aged 3 and 1) are looking for a loving temporary Granny who enjoys a rural lifestyle as soon as possible.

We only introduce you to selected families from our long list in our newsletters. For more families please take a look at our website: www.granny-aupair.com
