Signing up to volunteer to teach English to a family in Italy was the best decision I've ever made in my life. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget. It was everything I wanted out of this experience! I also could not have been placed with a better family! They were AMAZING people and we still keep in touch! The family was extremely welcoming and I felt at home immediately. I am welcome back at any time. I am actually in the process of planning a trip back, hopefully permanently!
I decided to become an Au Pair after completing my first semester of nursing school. I was at a time in my life where I did not know exactly what I wanted to do, while everyone around me seemed to know exactly what they were doing. I was in a rut and I needed to shake things up a bit. That's when I found out about GeoVisions Au Pair program.
This past summer, I volunteered to teach in Italy through GeoVisions and lived with my host family to help them learn English. When I was there, I wrote about what it was like to be an English language teacher in Italy through 6 inspirational quotes about traveling.
In February, Maggie, from South Ayrshire, Scotland, traveled to Cuba through GeoVisions. Here's her advice to others thinking of visiting the Caribbean Island, which is located 90 miles off the coast of Key West, Florida.
