It was incredibly hard to leave that super comfy bed at El Espolón the next morning but we knew we had a long day ahead. We had booked a pensión in Nájera, Calle Mayor, which was more reasonable in price but also not as nice. Also it was 18 miles away. The sun was well above the horizon when we set out to take a quick picture with the walking pilgrims statue. A girl there offered to take our picture and we tried to mirror the walks of the peregrinos. I think it came out pretty good.
Even though the albergue we stayed at was one of the cleanest, nicest and smallest no one is safe from the trials of the Camino and our morning began with a bed bug scare. I am very allergic to any type of bug bite and react very poorly so we took extra precautions and made the hospitalera let us use her washer and dryer on all the hottest settings.
From Villava it was an easy walk into Pamplona and we got there shortly after 10am. We planned to take a “nero” there and be tourists for a day. I learned that word from Vanessa’s PCT hike and it comes from when hikers take a day off, walking zero miles and call it such. When they only walk a few in a day instead of their usual it’s a near zero, a nero.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
