    Hi all,

    I am on your homepage with my finca on Mallorca.
    I find the topic of working from home very exciting. I'm often in Mallorca during the winter months and work from there. Maybe you would like to promote the topic in connection with my finca. The WiFi on the finca is specially designed for this.
    Many greetings.
    Wolfgang Bach
