The Chronicles of Barcelona, Part XXVII – Catalunya Square

…or, if you’re going to be all official about it, “Plaça de Catalunya“:

Plaça de Catalunya (Catalan pronunciation is a large square in central Barcelona that is generally considered to be both its city centre and the place where the old city (see Barri Gòtic and Raval, in Ciutat Vella) and the 19th century-built Eixample meet.

It’s not a huge square, really. Tiny if you’re going to compare it to Times “Square”, which I did when I first heard the name.

But if anything, it’s cute. It has character, oh so much character, lol, as did most other Spanish…things…we saw.

One thing I want to say though – you know how in movies the the characters always look out some moving vehicle’s window and point to whatever they’re looking at and looking at everything in wonderment? You know how they make that look so magical?

If you don’t know what I’m referring to, I’m sure you will after you watch this Wanderlust trailer from a couple Youtubers:

The thing is, lol, I’m pretty sure it’s the soundtrack that makes everything so magical. Yeah, it’s awesome looking at things you’ve only seen in movies or in textbooks and it’s crazy when it finally sinks in that you’re somewhere, but (at least personally) that realization takes a little while to actually sink in.

Sometimes it’s not until after I’m already gone that I’m like, Jeez, I was just in Barcelona.
