Holidaying in Cabo

Back from our holiday in Cabo and we had a great time. Our friends condo was just fabulous and heaps of room for us all. The weather was very hot but not as hot as Texas.
I love that place.
Thank you to our friends Terry and Ruth.

Hotel Upgrade

Never book a premium hotel room or luxury car – unless it’s a very special occasion and you are worried about availability. Instead, save money by reserving a standard room or car and then asking for a free upgrade upon arrival. You can even get on-site upgrades on discounted rooms.
