In a little more than a month’s time I will be traveling to Pamplona, Spain with four amazing female travel bloggers to run with the bulls. This is isn’t a surprise to those of you who follow me on facebook and twitter, we have been planning this trip to Pamplona for a while now and officially announced the Girls Running with Bulls project at the beginning of May.
Accommodations proved to be one of the biggest hurdles; we were visiting Pamplona during the busiest time of year. During the San Fermin festival, people from all over the world descend upon the city, ballooning the modest population of 300,000 to over a million. Every cot, couch or make shift bed would be claimed. Hostels and hotels were booked out months in advance and if anything was available it would cost us our first born.
Aside from the cost, how would we find a place in Pamplona to accommodate all five female travelers? We wanted to stay together in a comfortable setting close enough to the action. Roomorama was the ideal solution, offering short let apartments at an affordable price. Roomorama hooked us up with a large private flat in a central location in Pamplona, making them our official accomodations provider for the San Fermin festival!!!!
You might remember my wonderful experience with Roomorama in Harajuku where I got to live like a local. I suspect the Pamplona flat will be an even better because I will be sharing a flat with my fearless girls. We will be able to cook, relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the festival if we so desire.
