Then I thought, no, “Tomato Madness” is hilarious and cute.
…But after awhile, I really thought about why I was there, and what it took…
After being inspired by a friend’s La Tomatina scrapbook pictures back in Chicago in 2009, and finding a “partner in crime”, willing to go on this endeavor, we found some cheap Ryan Air tickets from England to Spain.
Originally only seeing the city of Valencia as ‘the Avenue’ to check one more box on my Bucket List, and to get saucy with some serious tomatoes, I was pleasantly surprised by this beautiful city when we arrived.
It almost reminded me of Houston, Texas, with the warm weather and palm trees, and my friend and I smiled. A bit of an upgrade from the weather in London for sure! It is absolutely gorgeous with the historical Spanish architecture, the tropical landscaping, and the flare it’s people bring to the normal hustle and bustle of life.
Here is a glimpse of our first day on the road in Spain…
(Day 1 in Spain was pretty much checking out the Plaza de la Virgen and everything around it. After getting up at 2:30am to catch a bus to London’s Stansted airport, that was enough!)

Plug shapes and voltages vary from country to country. N. America, Europe, the UK, and Australia all use different plug shapes, …and N. American power outlets provide 120 volts at 60 Hz, while outlets in Europe provide 230 volts at 50 Hz.

Yesterday was West London, today is East London.
Most will tell you East London is very diverse, and it’s not as posh as West London, but this one right here, she had me at hello.
She was discussing a project for work, and I snapped this image of her.
Love it. Love her.
