End of Part One

Left our apartment at 10am for a leisurely walk to the bus station where we discovered there are no buses to Pamplona airport!? Hey, ho. We boarded a number 16 which, we were told, goes close. After about 20 minutes we saw the airport in the distance and assessed the best place to leap from the bus. I exaggerate slightly for dramatic effect. We walked to Noain, a nondescript little town and found a cafe to have coffee and an egg and bacon roll. We then walked towards the airport only to discover there was no pedestrian access. Forced to walk along the main dual carriageway with no pavements, we spent the next ten minutes watching the oncoming HGVs with great interest.
