Barcelona, Spain

As was easily guessed yesterday, the answer to the second where in the world quiz was Barcelona, Spain! I took a shuttle bus from Vianden to Luxembourg City, then a train from Luxembourg City to Paris and a separate train to Barcelona from Paris. I didn’t really get any good photos from the train because a) they are bullet trains which can go up to 180 mph, which is too fast for photos b) it was very foggy and not great for photos anyway and c) the train windows were very dirty.

I have always wanted to go to Barcelona, mostly because I fell in love with the work by Antoni Gaudi in university, and his work is all over Barcelona (although I discovered you have to pay a steep price to see any of it, haha). But in particular, I have always wanted to see La Sagrada Familia, and that was the major giveaway in my photo quiz. I’ll do a separate post just for that soon, but in the meantime, here are some other photos of Barcelona.
