La Tomatina Backpacker Meetup 2010

Are there any backpackers heading to the La Tomatina festival in Valencia in late August? I’m flying from Dublin down to Valencia on August 18th and planning to meet up with the DriftingDuo, Brad and Chelsea, who I met early this summer during their stay in Santorini as well as a few other backpackers from New Zealand who lived on Santorini this summer (but don’t blog or tweet)!  From the Travel Twittersphere, I believe @camorose (C’est Christine), @suzyguese (suzyguese), and maybe @cailinoneil (TravelYourself) are making the trip.

Anyone else making the journey? Should we organize a backpacker get together somewhere a day or two prior to the actual La Tomatina Festival? If you’re familiar with Valencia and have a suggestion for a meeting point on the 23rd or 24th, leave it in the comments!

PS – We may be venturing to Ibiza for a couple days sometime between the 19th and 23rd if you’re interested.
