Bulls in Pamplona

When John and me were planning the biketrip for this coming June. I said as a joke, well if we arrive at Pamplona we will find it easily by the dust from the bulls running through the streets and when you make a wrong turn we are suddenly in the mid of the bulls. Well I just discovered it could be really through. I was looking if there were cheap hotels in Pamplona and I found it strange that is was very hard to find a room and they were all so expensive. So I decided to google on "Pamplona 2011" and what did I find out? Well that the bull runs are that week in Pamplona. Lol do you see us in front of some bulls, live on TV, maybe we will change the route now a little to not go through Pamplona, but around it.
Ik maakte de hele tijd een grapje tegen John over Pamplona, dat we wel Pamplona konden vinden door de stofwolk van de rennende stieren en dat we opeens midden tussen de rennen in zouden zitten met de fiets. Nu had ik een beetje een planning gemaakt en ik ging kijken of er nog leuke hotels in Pamplona waren te vinden en ik het maar raar vinden dat er niks te vinden was. Ging ik net kijken via google, blijkt het stierenrennenfestival precies tot die dag te lopen. Jullie snappen al dat ik hartelijk heb moeten lachen dat mijn grapje bijna uit kwam. Misschien dat we nu de route toch iets om gooien, door niet door, maar langs Pamplona te fietsen.

Best dat je grapje maar bijna uit zou komen... ik zou ook een veiliger route kiezen en zo alle drukte van stieren en dolle menigte mijden.

getsie je moet er toch niet aan denken...zo horde dolle stieren die recht op jullie af komen rennen. En ja dan zit bij zo'n druk bezocht festival alles ook nokvol....

Hi Judith! I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself, since I'm new to your blog. I'm Julie, and I found you through Nancy M. I think I would like to stay away from the bulls! I hope you have a good trip though!

the "san Fermín" (in Pamplona) start in 7 th July and finish in 14 th July. In this week you can find some street closed to the "encierros" (bull race)..in that week Pamplona is full of turist, and the hotel are more expensive than the rest of the year. The parties start in Madrid in may, then every town and city have their own bull parties week...and all the "encierros" finsih in October...we need time to make some prearatives to christmas..of ourse,,and the new year, and then eastern,,and then "San Fermin"..oh god!, we have so many parties!
