Study Abroad in El Escorial: Pre-departure

I have finally made it. Sitting in the Atlanta airport waiting to board my flight to Madrid, I let out a sigh of relief. My family has left, and I have nothing to do before my flight but wait and relax. The difficult part is over. After days of packing and making sure all my ducks are in a row for this trip, I am finally almost there. I have been dreaming of studying abroad in Spain for years.
