Highlights from Carnaval 2013 in Maastricht, the Netherlands
From InterExchange Working Abroad Ambassador Julie, Au Pair Netherlands:
One incredible perk of being an au pair in Europe is being able to partake in the local festivals of your host country. The Carnival (spelled Carnaval in Dutch) in Maastricht is comparable to Mardi Gras in New Orleans, with slightly fewer beads. There are parades, people dressed in outrageous costumes, and you'll find yourself singing along (despite not knowing the words) to the raucous songs as you walk down the street!
Enjoy the highlights of my Carnaval experience below:

As an au pair in the Netherlands, you'll be able to explore the local shops, nightlife, traditional windmills and more. With 2 weeks of paid vacation, you'll also have the opportunity to do some independent traveling around the Netherlands and across Europe - which is right on your doorstep.
