Couldn’t find anything truly representative of the season, so I chose this.  The Magic Fountain in Barcelona.  Very cool.  A must see thing in Barcelona, Spain…and festive all the time.  To set this up, we got off the train from a day trip to Montserrat and came up to the Plaza de España.  We knew we were close to the fountain, and sure enough, bigger than life was the fountain.  Spectacular.  The fountain runs in 30 minute computerized sequences.  On this occasion, we were fortunate enough to be here during a Jazz Festival, so the program was all jazz.



About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.

  1. Beautiful picture!

    Happy New Year to you and your family, John!

  2. Hi,
    Wow, what a spectacular fountain, loved the colours, I thought it looked really awesome when it changed to green and blue on the outside and red and white in the middle, then orange, then yellow, it really does stand out, and it looks huge as well.
    I could hear the music in the background, sounds like it was a great night out. 🙂

    • There are parts that go up to the parliament buildings and down the street to the train station we came from. All on all, an awesome sight. It was a bit windy which hurt the sound.

      • That is unreal, it would be an awesome sight. I could tell it was rather windy, but you could still get the feel for the music and the atmosphere of the night.

  3. Happy New Year – great video love the colors. Hope the coming year has you traveling to many more far off places ..and showing them to us 🙂

  4. Love the fountain … and Happy New Year …. plus I see many familiar faces here!

  5. Beautiful! (And it looks warm too. Sigh.)

    Happy new year to you and your family, John!
