Seeing Gaudí and Dalí

IE Residents and Staff Pose for a Group Photo in Spain.

On May 29, 14 residents of IE’s Community Residential Services (CRS) flew to Spain for a well-deserved vacation, paid for from the salaries they earn year round in their jobs.


L-R: Dalí Theatre-Museum, IE Resident at Magic Fountain of Montjuïc, and Vall de Nuria.

Making a Costa Brava hotel their “home away from home”, the group traveled with their IE support providers and a Hebrew-speaking guide to a different tourist destination each day.  Highlights of the trip included Guell Park, a garden complex with architectural elements designed by Antoni Gaudí; Vall de Nuria, an area of outstanding views, fauna and flora approached by mountain railway; Rupit, a small village that retains its medieval appearance, including stone houses and streets and spectacular views of nearby cliffs; and the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres.  One evening they traveled to Barcelona to see the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc, a spectacular display of color, light, motion, music and water acrobatics.

The residents returned tired but happy on June 5, bearing souvenirs, gifts for friends and family, and photos to proudly share with friends and co-workers.  Thanks to the generosity of IE’s donors, the group was accompanied by IE’s support providers.
