I expect many of you reading have probably experienced a Jacuzzi in an exotic location before, but I doubt many of you can top this… a Jacuzzi on the top of Mont Blanc. These crazy people last month ascended Mont Blanc at night, assembled their ‘Jaccuzzi’ at the summit, melted some fresh snow and […]

Last weekend saw the start of the San Fermin festival in Pamplona. This 9-day long event controversially centres upon the famous ‘running with the bulls’ spectacle each morning.
