La Tomatina Review

La Tomatina is it’s official name, and throwing tomatoes is the game, but is it any good? I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to review La Tomatina, which had been on my bucket list for over a decade! This classic festival dates back to a 1940’s feud and has grown exponentially ever since, but is it any good? Is it just a tourist trap now?


Lake Como (and Chiasso)

I tried to look out for George Clooney's lakefront mansion, but unfortunately couldn't see it. I did spot Mezzegra though, and you'll be overjoyed to know that this is where Benito Mussolini and his missus were shot, not long after they had been caught hiding out at Dongo, another nice town situated on the North side of the Lake.
