San Fermin

Madrid to Pamplona-- Why so difficult?

Trying to purchase a bus ticket from Madrid to Pamplona for san fermin, because the renfe train is expensive.

I tried http://www.movelia.e… http://www.conda.es/ I get all the way to the Payment option and the payment never goes through.. the same happened on renfe site. My bank says it’s the websites fault.. I’m just really having trouble with simple things like booking a bus ticket being so difficult. Is there a site that actually works?

SIDE NOTE: for those looking to book on renfe.com from the states, the english version of the site it petrabax.com <—- hope that helps.

The Fanatics

My friend and I knew we were going to Run with the Bulls in Pamplona to kick off our European adventure together. After researching and researching, I was sure that we were going to overpay for a hostel that wasn’t even guaranteed to have availability. Mind you, I began looking in February – a solid 5 months before the kick off of the festival.

Running of the Bulls with Stoke Travel

If anybody is thinking about going to Running of the Bulls then:
1) Do it! It is the best festival I have been to in Europe!
2) Check out Stoke Travel (www.stoketravel.com). They do awesome trips (I went with them last yeat and doing the same this year). Great price, great vibe and 5€ unlimited beer and sangria each day!!!
3) Watch out for dead mans corner!
