The Forty Three Meme

Deborah at Old Shoes -New Trip tagged the other Slow Travel bloggers with a list of 43 interesting city squares, plazas and piazzas from around the world. She challenges us to find out how many of these squares we have visited.

I went through the list and only came up with 13 squares. I definitely have my work cut out to make a dent on the other 30.

Cool, Marta. Your list has four that mine doesn't. Thanks for being the first person to take my challenge!

Well, I only have visited 8! At first I only thought I had visited 7 until I noticed the Brussels one you marked. When I looked it up, I realized that the Grote Markt, Brussels is another name for the The Grand'Place - a beautiful square with wonderful memories.

Only ten! :(

Our lists are remarkably similar (except mine won't post until tomorrow morning).

Your list is similar to mine except the square in Brussels (I might have driven by) and the one in Paris.

Our lists ARE very similar except that I haven't been to Spain. It's fun to go around and look at these.
