Yes, We Drank the Whole Thing

Madrid to Soria to Pamplona
Camino Day Minus 2

Our first night in Spain, and we were tired after following up the flight to Madrid with a bus ride to Pamplona.

After checking in at our hotel, we took a nap. Then up and out for dinner. Thank goodness the Spanish eat late. We found a nice neighborhood restaurant with a “Menu of the Day” that came with wine, beer, or bottled water. James asked for beer, but I went for the wine. The waiter brought a full bottle of a Navarrese wine.

I asked, “Am I supposed to have a glass of this?”

He replied, “The bottle comes with the meal.”

So, yes, we drank the whole thing. James helped. The best sleep aid possible for two jet-lagged pilgrims.
