I'd love to go do that, if I was single I probably would!!
I wouldn't advise Germany.
I don't know about France.
It is a VERY difficult market to get in to. Out here, if you're single with no children you pay I think 40% tax on earnings over €400.
Not only that, but GP riders are a dime a dozen, and that's what they look for. Being female also doesn't help, unless the trainer/owner isn't interested in females.
I know a friend of mine au pairs in France, and she was picked up by a family in Paris- she now has an apartment supplied to her which is bigger than my house, which is fairly roomy. Sometimes it pays off, but do your research first.
