I said I would do some articles on the places that we plan to visit during the epic trip around Europe next summer, so let's start off with an amazing festival in Valencia, Spain.
A festival where participants throw tomatoes at each other!? Awesome. It is always held on the last Wednesday in August in the town of Buñol, Valencia.
It just so happens that we'll be travelling through Spain in the last week of August. It was complete coincidence too. I had no idea what time of year that La Tomatina took place, and when I stumbled across it again recently and saw the date, an idea began to form in my head...
An idea where me and my best friends in the world, surrounded by thousands of people, become French fries personified - and covered in ketchup. Pretty weird really, considering that I prefer mayonnaise on my chips.
I'm going to be pretty scared to get my camera out to take photos when I'm there, just in case it gets drenched in tomato.
