... at least an hour more of drive time then we had initially thought it would be. Luckily for us, the drive was beautiful. It was a great way to see the Spanish country side.

... threw out the monarchy in 1931, one of the many reasons being the vast and expensive Royal household. Then after a long civil war Franco’s dictatorship recognised that a monarch will return. Lo and behold they come back after Franco’s death and immediately start spreading again. Juan Carlos’ current titles include King of Spain, of Castile, of León, of Aragon, of the Two ...
