Pamplona was a nice town, not anything extremely exceptional compared to other Spanish towns but well worth the visit.

They have the third largest bullring in the world, apparently. Just glad it was the wrong season for bullfights, seem like an incredibly stupid idea to me. If men want to prove their courage and daring, let them fight each other instead. Would probably draw even larger crowds, but I bet there would be fewer volunteers. I mean, if the odds were suddenly fifty fifty, maybe it would no longer be so enticing.

At least the weather has gotten better. It’s no longer raining all the time. Still cold, but there has been a fair bit of sunshine.

Thankfully, I bought some wool underwear and an extra sleeping bag in Pamplona. Just as well as one of the few nights I have spent in the tent so far was somewhere around -4!

It’s been a bit cold even during the days, but there are lots of bars along the way where it is possible to sneek in, get warmed up and enjoy a coffee (or beer).

Will try to reach Zaragoza tomorrow, and plan on taking a rest day there, walking around town and exploring. Don’t know squat about Zaragoza so it could prove interesting!

Thought I would leave you with a bit of important information I discovered along the road.

So now you know!
