Great Place to Meet,

It is always difficult to arange to meet anywhere in Pamplona because it gets so busy and peoples timing is distracted by the booze. One place I can suggest that it is great to hang out in the Harp Bar in Calle San Gregorio I have included a google map link below. It has cheap prices (unlike most places who double their prices) and English speaking bar staff and it is only a few mins walk from the main square and all the action. Yes it is owned by a Mad Irishman called Eion, but he has lived in Pamplona for so many years he s now more Spanish than the locals.

Everybody who goes to this festival is an arsehole!

It’s just mega cheesy and played out and it attracts all the bullshitter annoying backpackers.
You know the ones, who bore all their friends back home with slideshow parties on their return

Spare us please!

Last time I was in Europe, I went to the mega cheesy San Fermin with a Contiki Tour.  We took a casual jog through the streetz of Pamplona and got gored up the ringo by a bull with big horns.  The slideshow party afterward was to die for.
