Retomando el Blog 

Hace algún tiempo que no escribía en el blog por falta de tiempo, pero ahora podré dedicarselo.

Estoy dándole una nueva vida al web galice.net, nuevo template, nueva imagen y nuevas temáticas. Poco a poco iré cambiando articulos y renovando fotos, y por supuesto alguna que otra sorpresa.

Espero que un renovado Galice.net aportará un aire nuevo al mundo de la comunicación digital centrado en Galicia, iternet y el turismo en general.
