Volunteering in A Labour Organization in Denmark

Time flies and suddenly it’s October again! Last year, I was struggling with my previous host family so my October was dark, tiring, and sad 🙁 Thankfully, this year I have a chance to restart my au pair story. I have found a good host and been here for almost 8 months. Time flies faster…
