We have been in Spain for a little over two weeks already! I feel like time is going really fast. Some of the reasons why we are here in Spain are to travel to as many places as possible, see the sights and document in various forms. Our first trip outside Madrid was to a small village called El Escorial. It is known for a massive Monastery! I've always thought that monasteries were these small, quaint buildings with jolly monks who make some sort of beer or wine, but this place was nothing like that. It was massive, I didn't see any monks, there was no making of beer or wine, and there were a lot of tourists. Here is a vlog (video blog) that shows a little bit of our adventure!
