Cape Town - Each Tuesday the twitter verse comes together to talk travel – with topics ranging from the important and useful, all the way to the wild and untamed.This week's topic dealt with all the wonderful and weird festivals of the world. Ooh boy, there are the good old favourites like the Rio Carnival and the Oktoberfest in Germany, but there are a few equally strange ones - such as the baby-jumping festival in Spain. You have to see the pic further down to believe it. Question 3 via @templeberg wanted travellers to share the most bizarre things seen at a festival. A3 Giant cans of Spam. Yes folks, Hawaii has a fun festival to honour the canned meat but don't knock it until you try it! #ttot— Intrepid Travel (@Intrepid_Travel) July 15, 2014A3: People impaling themselves with meat hooks and tridents during Thaipusam in Malaysia. #ttot— Eric (@WanderingEric) July 15, 2014A5 The fire eaters at the Hornbill Festival in Kohima #India - a sight to behold #ttot pic.twitter.com/Pa2Yy9NcZE— Intrepid Travel (@Intrepid_Travel) July 15, 2014#TTOT A3: Strangest festival sight - Have we all forgotten the Baby jumping festival in Spain?? #mustlovefestivals pic.twitter.com/7XBCzXf1aa— Must Love Festivals (@MustLoveFests) July 15, 2014What do you think of these?
