  1. Geez, a little backlogged on your email, Ang?

    Justine 😮 )

  2. What a great way to do something with all of those emails! (I have a bunch of "companies" stored in a folder in my email waiting for me to write something. )
    Glad I saw this post! 🙂

  3. Wow lots to shout about. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Long list…How do you keep it all straight?

  5. We suggest you always book your golf holiday in Spain in advance in the peak seasons to avoid disappointment and to avail of discounts. All the golf courses are fully booked through the whole season here; so are the hotels and car hire. Look for companies who offer golf booking, hotel reservations and car hire- all three under one roof. All your holiday requirements should be well planned before you arrive for your vacation. It is much more convenient to let one company manage your holiday; they have a lot many package offers for individual as well as group bookings.

  6. Greetings! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a
    quick shout out and say I really enjoy reading through your blog posts.
    Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with the same
    topics? Many thanks!
