Ring trip and Pamplona

After driving to the Nurburgring for my annual euro trip I'd love to post the video of a couple of laps we recorded but I've no idea how to , I can't even post pics anymore !
My passengers wife sent the video to my wife via something called what's app, and that's as good as you lot are going to get , but I can say I let a m2 competition past and just managed to keep him in view for around a minute and a half , don't race one of them in a slk on a track , you've got no chance and it's pretty obvious where the differences are !
after the ring we drove to Bordeaux airport where I left my passenger and met my wife . Bordeaux is a good night out by the way !
From there we drove to Pamplona for the last weekend of the San Fermin festival. It's a great place , but personally I wouldn't bother trying to get on the street trying to run with the bulls , I've done it before and the reality is your standing on a street surrounded by drunks , 8am in the morning, and the bulls have been and gone before you know it . Your far better off going to the bull ring and watch the nutters running for their lives ! Enjoy the rest of the festival over the Sunday and keep walking , there's something to see and experience around every corner , Hemingways bar is a good vantage point late afternoon on the terrace.
From there we dropped down to logrono , the capital of Rioja, another great place with good nightlife . We booked a tour of the ' marques de murrietta ' vineyards and cellars , I thought it would be a group thing but we ended up with a personal guided tour ending with the vineyards acclaimed chef and sous chef preparing tasters for us alone to compliment our wine tasting !
After that we went to San Sebastián, we've been going for years and it never lets us down , all I can say is try it once in your life , we did and we've gone back every year since , it's a great place if you like food , wine and life in general.
We stopped at a couple of random French towns on the way back up , La Rochelle and angers , both nice enough but the highlight was the last stop at Honfleur, a lovely costal town with a lot going on .
After that it was the ferry for four hours , as boring as you could imagine , then the six hour trip back to the Wirral , even more boring!
