From Charlotte, Germany


Thanks to Ninukot I was able to come over to Iceland during my holidays and work at coffee shop for about two months. I had a great time there, made a lot of useful experiences, met many nice people and was not only lucky enough for work in pleasant surroundings but also to travel quite a bit and see some of Iceland's marvellous landscape. This was possible due to your generous help and offering of information. I am really grateful that organizations like yours exist and want to thank you very much for this lifetime experience. I wish you a wonderful New Year and please do keep it up!

Lost in Iceland

Now it´s almost 2 years ago when I had been in Iceland for the last time.  

My time on the farm in Iceland was one of the greatest experience I have ever made and I´m so often thinking about it.  Some days ago we had mighty fog in the mountains - I´m working in the Suisse mountains at the moment - and everybody was grumbling about this ugly spring weather - except me.

Beyond one's limits...

I chose to go to Iceland as an Au Pair through Ninukot.  The most important reason for my decision was to learn about other cultures and to teach about my own.  

I also knew it would be a big step towards becoming more independent, learn to know myself better, - and to really enjoy Iceland´s fascinating nature.  I often thought that I had reached my limits, but discovered that I had much great potential in developing my personality than I had thought possible.
