Hi, and thanks for stopping by! I’m Talya. I live in Berlin, where I am raising my three kids, working as a Recruiter for Start-ups, writing, and helping singles meet through matchmaking services via Berlin Matchmaker.

In my pre-mom life, I worked as an Au Pair in south Germany. I loved the experience and wouldn’t trade it for the world, but it wasat times challenging. I wish there had been more information out there for Au Pairs, but back then there wasn’t much. Which is why I started this blog and wrote an Ebook – to help au pairs – and anyone thinking about becoming an au pair – to find out all they need to know.

At the moment I’m looking for contributors to this blog. If you’re a writer, an Au Pair, or a traveler and would like to share your experience or tips please get in touch! You can   email me to talk details.

If you want to keep track of what I’m up to now, follow me at @onlyonetalya.
