Daria and new boots

I love shopping and I love love love clothes and shoes. Since I have been in Munich I have been in some shops and have been looking around, but I was not really shopping until today.

Today I was shopping with some new Au Pair friends. For hours we were going from shop to shop, trying on tops, pullovers, trousers, skirts, shoes and... It was so wonderful and exciting.

I have seen so many wonderful things and I could have filled a truck or two! :-)

But finally I bought "only" a pair of boots. I fell in love with them the moment I saw them. So here they are, the first shoes I have bought in Munich!

Daria and the flight to Munich

So, now I am here in Munich. My flight from Krasnodar to Munich was yesterday afternoon. My parents and my sister brought me to the airport. My mum was crying, my father said he was proud of me and my sister hugged me really long. At that moment already I was missing them very much.

The flight was good without any problems. I was listening to music and thinking about all that was ahead of me: my time as an Au pair girl in Munich.

In Munich my Au pair family picked me up. They are very nice and the baby is so cute. We have been talking on the phone and have written emails, but it was the first time to see them real. They really made me feel very welcome!

The first night in my own new room was strange. I couldn't sleep because of the new room and because I was so excited. When I fell asleep I had crazy dreams and woke up several times. When I got up in the morning I was not fit but I also was not feeling very tired. I am waiting for all the new things that will happen today!

Daria and the baggage

Already weeks ago I started thinking about what to bring with me when I am leaving for Germany. You have to know, I have a lot of clothes and a lot of shoes. So it is very hard to decide if I want this, need that, have to take this,… Last week I began to pack my suitcases and since then I have taken out my things and packed new clothes and shoes and things several times. But today is the day I finally have to decide what I am taking with me. I checked the weather forecast for Munich several times and today I will pack my bags the last time. I know my parents will send me one or two packages by mail, but there are a lot of belongings I want to take with me now and may want to wear or use soon. But you can be sure I also will buy new things soon. Now I have to go and will pack my bags during the next hours.

Hello! :-) Welcome to my web page!

My name is Daria Aksyonova. I am a 18 year old Russian girl and live with my family in Krasnodar.

Soon I will be Au pair girl in Munich, where I will stay for one year to learn the German language. I am very excited and eager to make new experiences but I am also sad to leave my family. I will very much miss my mother, father and sister.

I will write about my life and experiences as a Au pair girl in Germany. I decide to write in English and not Russian because I think it's not only interesting for Russian people. Writing in German would be better to improve my language skills, but on time my German is not good enough yet. Maybe I will do this in future.

Have fun reading my texts and write me comments and ideas and questions.
