May 2

After a four-hour delay due to maintenance issues we finally got in the air at 10 p.m. and flew all night. I arrived in Madrid at noon on May 2 and up with “Hawk” and “Little Pony” in the baggage claim area. We caught a cab to the train station in Madrid and waited on a train to Pamplona.

Finally arrived in Pamplona at 6:20 p.m. (Central European Time Zone) and took a cab to the motel where we are in for the night and went to dinner. Pamplona is a beautiful city. We spent the evening touring around and eating and having a few glasses of wine.

Tomorrow will have breakfast here at the hotel and then call the shuttle and travel up to St. John Pied de Port where we will then leave on the trail to Orrison for the bed-and-breakfast.

Pamplona is a wonderful city. It so full of life and activity! We stayed at the Hotel Eslava, which is nice and clean, for 45 Euros/single and comes with breakfast. They have good WiFi here as well. On Tuesday and Thursday all the restaurants have tapas (appetizers) and vino for two Euros. They are really good!
