I was worried about getting through security with my backpack -hiking sticks tucked inside but sticking out of the top and sandals dangling tied to the back. I sailed through. Only one slight hiccup. I had to be patted down because of the money belt under my shirt. Nice TSA worker said,”On the screen it looks like you are hilding something.” Note to self, next time hide money belt after security.
Next stop JFK – 3 hour layover – 5 hr flight to Madrid – 4 hr layover – short flight to Pamplona – find the bus station -get picked up by the B & B amigo.
