Local company Nubecall are offering a great new service – exceptionally cheap calls all over the world:
Those rates are significantly cheaper than Skype, but the best thing about the service is that you can use it on your landline and / or your mobile phone, so you aren’t tied to your computer.
You can make cheap calls from your own phone, whilst still displaying your caller ID!
How it works
Nubecall relies on the fact that most of us have free calls to local numbers. Nubecall issue you with a local number to use and you use that to access their sophisticated server. The server then routes your on-going call at the lowest possible price, but with top call quality. There’s no need to enter a code or PIN – Nubecall recognises your incoming call as an authorised one. You don’t need to download an app, and it’s easy to set up your phone so that it does the whole process automatically.
Although it’s a great service for those of us who live in Spain (especially if you call home often) it can also be used by people who live in UK or Ireland to save on call costs at home. read more »

The Para Triathlon squad destined to represent Team GB at Rio 2016 has spent the last two weeks here in Lanzarote on a warm weather training camp. Several of the athletes are already world champions and many are tipped for Olympic medals as para triathlon becomes part of The Olympics for the first time.
Around 20 athletes came to the island, with specialist coaches, physiotherapists, sports psychologists and support staff. They stayed at Sands Beach Active in Costa Teguise for the duration, making great use of the training pool and gym facilities there. Everyone trained in the pool each morning at 0615, and then the days varied, with plenty of cycling and hand-cycling on the island’s roads and running on road, dirt-track and at the Arrecife stadium. On two of the days they headed to Puerto del Carmen to swim on the Ironman course and run part of the Ironman route along the sea front.
It was a tough and very focused fortnight for all, but they had one night of light relief when they visited Barstro in Nazaret, where Viktor and Paul laid on a magnificent surprise Tapas meal. read more »

The photographic exhibition entitled “The captive look” will be inaugurated this evening at 21:00. The exhibition will be on display from the 30th January, entrance is free and visiting hours are from 12.30h to 21:00h.
We spoke to Maru Camogli, one of the photographers that takes part in this collective exhibition.
What is the subject of this exhibition?
The idea of our project came from this experience, where we pay our own tribute to August Sander by researching and documenting his era and taking photos respecting his aesthetics and atmosphere.
For those not in the know, who was August Sander?
August Sander (1876-1964) was a German photographer known for his portraits of subjects far away from expressionism with great honesty and realism. He applied the concepts of the New Objectivity to people’s portraits with a deep sense of humanity and respect. He said: “We need to learn to see the truth and read more »
As we head into the last week of January, there’s still time to taste this month’s menu at Barstro in Lanzarote.
Our favourites from this menu was the grilled chorizo tapas with a twist, warm goat’s cheese with pumpkin seed, Serrano ham and palm honey for starters and calamari with lime, chili and coconut milk served with aromatic rice for the main course. Dessert had to be the naughty dark chocolate and marshmallow parfait! How about you?
If you’ve flown on easyJet this month and read the Traveller inflight magazine, you may have seen me featured in The Real Regulars section, talking about why I love to eat at Barstro.
We also had an opportunity in January to sample the wonderful surprise tapas menu which is read more »
