How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

WindscribeVPN Pro and Free Versions: WHILE NORD AND EXPRESS VPNs BOTH SUFFERED MASSIVE DATA BREACHES RECENTLY, WINDSCRIBE REMAINS ONE OF THE ONLY MAJOR VPNs TO NOT GET HACKED! GET IT NOW! For Windows, Mac, Linux, plus now Android and iOS Apps (NEW)! Windscribe (Canada) provides access to 480+ servers in 51 countries in the Pro Version. Both versions are very fast. Pro version is IPTV, Netflix and P2P friendly! Very simple install and setup. Comes with both System-wide VPN and also a browser plug-in VPN. Static IP addresses available. No risk- three day cash back refund test period. A free version (not for IPTV) is available providing servers in USA, UK, CAN, FR, NOR, SWISS, GER, NL,  Hong Kong & Romania.  Windscribe sponsors DigameXtra, making a modest donation for every VPN purchased, but only if you use this red link.  Click to Get Windscribe VPN Free and Pro Recommended by DoctorLaptop! As I recently demonstrated to several computer clients, on a 100Mb connection and using the same server location on both VPNs, Canada-based Windscribe Pro VPN tested at 90Mb for both download and upload, while Panama-based Nord Pro VPN tested at only 30Mb download and only 5Mb upload! Don’t take my word for it. From tech review site PixelPrivacy.com: “NordVPN’s Tested Speed: 17.90Mbps average download speed.” “NordVPN’s connection speeds are slow when compared to the speeds of other VPNs.” https://pixelprivacy.com/vpn/nordvpn-review/

Long Term Rental: 6-7 Month Rental in La Herradura
Do you know anyone who is interested in finding a very special sublet from March-September? Perhaps you’ve heard good things about La Herradura and would like to experience it first-hand before pursuing a longer term rental or purchase? My villa offers exceptional, unobstructed views to the sea, as well as a very quiet location on the Punta de la Mona. The villa is equipped with everything one would want for a unique experience in comfort and peace as you watch the birds flying over head, and listen to the sea from the terraces and inside the home. We have a Berkey water filtration system so no need to be carting large plastic bottles of water. We also have a clothes dryer and high end appliances, in addition to quality utensils, cookware and tableware. We’ve tried to think of every convenience that would make for a very special experience. This 2 bedroom and 2.5 baths home is exceptionally well equipped with 2 hair dryers, spices in the cabinet, paper products, laundry detergent etc. The master bath is exceptionally well designed with a wonderful large soaking tub and separate, large modern shower. Both baths are ensuite with the half bath upstairs by the open concept kitchen livingroom/dining area. Staying here will feel like you’re moving into a good friend’s or family member’s home. There are 2 terraces with plantings so if one loves to garden, you’d be put at the top of the list although having a green thumb is not a requirement as the watering is on an automatic sprinkler system. The rent is 2000€ per month.
Serious inquiries only please. I would be happy to send along photos and there would be an opportunity to view the villa. Please don’t hesitate asking any questions. Michelle/La Herradura. I can be reached at
