We arrived in Madrid yesterday morning, the 29th, and took a bus from the Madrid airport to Pamplona. It took us about an hour or so searching to find our hotel, the Eslava. Finally found it and rested for a while, then wandered into the city for the evening.
We spent a full day exploring Pamplona today. We planned it as a rest day. However, we ended up walking almost 8 miles around town!
