The â€˜La Tomatina’ Tomato Festival Spain; Everything to know and how to plan your visit!
10th April 2022 by One Step 4ward
TLDR? La Tomatina Festival in Spain is a once-yearly festival in a small town near Valencia (Bunol). For 1 hour in the middle of the day, trucks carry 120 tonnes of tomatoes. 20,000+ people (many of whom are very drunk!) have a giant tomato fight. When the horn sounds, it’s over, and the hoses come to wash the place down. What’s not to love right?!...

5 days in Madrid: Why we found it hard to leave
26th February 2015 by Wandering On
Madrid is often overlooked by those visiting Spain, who tend to favour Catalonia’s Barcelona as the â€˜must-see’ Spanish location. This is most definitely not the wisest option as Madrid has plenty to offer. The good news is it’s very well connected with the rest of Europe by train, bus and lots of options for cheap flights to Spain. We spent 5 days in Madrid after only planning three and we found it hard to leave for a number of reasons....
