Oh the Weekend

After sleeping through my alarm this morning, I have decided to go to Olite next Friday since I missed the one train out there.  Without any plans I just chose to spend the day wandering Pamplona.

This is the park behind my place, which is where I started my wandering adventures

Paige, the other exchange student from the U of A, had told me about a store down on Avenida de Carlos III so I headed in that general direction and, lo and behold, I had actually been there before.  Faja will probably recognize this next place

From there I meandered on some more (lucky for me today was sunny but only 20 degrees or I probably would have died since I didn’t think to bring water).

I don't actually know what this building was but it was puuurrrdyyy

I actually ended up in a municipality just outside of Pamplona called Mendillorri… things are very close here.  It was definitely a lot quieter there than in Pamplona.

A cute little lake and random building (though now that I googled it apparently it's the Mendillorri Palace though it didn't look that impressive to be a palace... just saying)

And yes then since I hit the highway I decided I should voyage back.  I went back to the store, Tiger, Paige had recommended and bought myself a pretty notebook and some candles (see I can use my brain, this way I didn’t have to carry them on my voyage).  The store was actually adorable.  Had I not been using self control I would have bought everything! Caitlin would have loved it – it’s like random stuff but everything was just so precious.  Anywhoo I headed home and now I’m just pondering how to spend the rest of my day.
