tripNETer Road Trip Music

31 May

In our Road Trip through the Green Spain, we spent many ‘lost hours’ driving from one landscape to another. We have found that for us there are some basic elements to survive the boredom that we want to share with you:

1) Bring with you lots of drinks. Water is the perfect choice to be hydrated, but I do prefer fruit juices (Peach specially, my favourite).

Good experiences @ MWC2012

7 Mar

This year’s Mobile World Congress was a complete success for tripNETer. We completely sold out and we were lucky to had our service reviewed by many important technology bloggers.

The feedback was great and will help us improve our service.

here are some experiences from our clients:

Carnaval de Cadiz

29 Jan

Cádiz is a city that is always beautiful to visit, but maybe a perfect timing for this visit is between the 16th to 25th February. That’s when the Carnaval de Cadiz takes place. That’s when Cádiz gets crazy.

It is a widely-held opinion that the city of Cádiz is blessed with the wittiest people in Spain, so it is not surprising that the main characteristics of the carnival in Cádiz are the acerbic  criticisms, the droll plays on words, stinging sarcasm, and the irreverence of parody. While some carnivals, elsewhere in the world, stress the spectacular, the glamorous, or the scandalous in costumes, Cádiz distinguishes itself with the sheer cleverness and fertile imagination of its carnival attire. It is traditional to paint the face as a humble substitute for a mask.

Spanish Gastronomy: Pescaíto Frito

23 Dec

Pescaíto Frito (fried fish) is a traditional fish dish originated during the 16th century in Spain and Portugal.The deep-frying of the fish in vegetable oil makes it crisp and light even when eaten cold, and it is a favourite dish of south spaniards.

There is a general belief that pescaito frito was possibly an inspiration for the English fish and chips.

Pescaito frito is usually eaten at chiringuitos, little restaurants at the beach, and a very popular pescaito frito chiringuito is Romerijo, at El Puerto de Santa Maria.

For a gastronomical trip, take a tripNETer mobile router with you so you can see the restaurant reviews on the way.



Vodafone Spain will cut the “free” MB for Roaming in Europe

14 Dec

A month ago Vodafone launched an important announce called “Commitment Vodafone”, which intended to “win the confidence” of the client by eliminating the “small asterisk footnotes”, not to limit the proposals, but to reinforce the message.

It only took 30 days to see the first asterisk and worser condition in their most expensive talk and surf plans that included 50MB or 250MB of “free” roaming navigation (Per month) within europe. Is still expensive if you compare it with tripNEter that offers unlimited MB per day for only 5,99€ all over Spain, but it was something.

Now any spanish user that activates their plans after december 1 wont have those “free” MB of roaming in Europe, and must pay a regular price for the Data Roaming that goes up to 1€ per 100kb for some users.
This new condition only gets worse every time and the roaming rates goes in the opposite direction to the technology advance and more consuming apps and pages we are getting used to.

New Year’s Eve in Spain

10 Dec

Spanish New Year’s Eve (Nochevieja or Fin de Año) celebrations usually begin with a family dinner, traditionally including shrimp and lamb or capon. Spanish tradition says that wearing new, red underwear on New Year’s Eve brings good luck. The actual countdown is primarily followed from the clock on top of the Casa de Correos building in Puerta del Sol Square in Madrid. It is traditional to eat twelve grapes, one on each chime of the clock.

This tradition has its origins in 1909, when grape growers in Alicante thought of it as a way to cut down on the large production surplus they had had that year. Nowadays, the tradition is followed by almost every Spaniard, and the twelve grapes have become synonymous with the New Year. After the clock has finished striking twelve, people greet each other and toast with sparkling wine such as cava or champagne, or alternatively with cider.
