Too many highlights to name but to mention a few…..meeting so many great people from all over the world, flying from Otívar to the coast followed by lunch on the beach, squeezing in a quick day’s skiing in the Sierra Nevada, the sunsets over Herradura bay, drinking a cold beer on our terrace with the cats stretched out in the sun, knowing we’re looking at a view and a place that’s hard to beat…!
