☺☺☺☺☺ 2006. The happy faces of the adorable Gund-Morrow kids say everything about how much they enjoyed the tour. Their mum, Catherine, says they kept talking about Gaudi for several days after day left Barcelona.
☺☺☺☺☺ As our tour guide in June 2004, Marta was such a wonderful source of knowledge regarding the history, culture, art, music, ambiance, etc. of Barcelona and the surrounding areas. She has such a passion for making everything vibrant and fun. Marta immediately tuned into our family's interests. While we experienced all of the typical tourist attractions, we also wanted to tap into the vast Judaic history of Barcelona. She brought us to the oldest Synagogue in Europe, as well as to a recently discovered Mikvah (ritual bath) in the back of a store that was starting to renovate their space. Marta also spent hours researching the Internet to uncover other places that we visited, off the beaten path, that were reflective of the rich Jewish heritage of this area. Everyday, Marta mesmerized our 11 year old son, 8 year old daughter and my wife and me with stories, myths, folklore, etc. What a joy she was to be with and how special Marta made our touring.
