Planning Trips Is Annoying

I am in the process of planning a trip to Pamplona, Spain this summer to Run with the Bulls. I have realized I know nothing about the travel system in Europe. Ok, I am fairly certain they have planes, trains, and automobiles over there, but learning all about their systems is an adventure in itself.

As of now, we think we are going to go from PDX to Dublin, Ireland. After three nights there, we are flying down to Spain (possibly through Madrid, possibly straight to Pamplona) for two or three more nights. Then comes the transcontinental train ride to Paris. No that is not transcontinental but it really long. Three nights in Paris. Amsterdam will be our final stop.

I am really looking forward to this trip since I have never been to Europe. Making sure there are flights/trains leaving and coming on the days we want them too is exhausting. We will figure it out though and there will be more on this later.

    On an unrelated note, how was the tornado? From the article in the paper it sounds like it passed pretty close to your place.

    Are you going to stay in any hostels? You better watch two movies first then…Hostel (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0450278/) and Hostel: Part II (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0498353/). They’ll change your mind.

    5.7 out of 10. Is that a real movie?

    Are you questioning the reliability of IMDB.com? Blasphemy!
