We wish you happy reading and a nice holiday!
Dear reader – resident or tourist – I wish you a warm welcome on the first issue 2013 of Spirit of Fuerteventura ®! Yes, indeed, it has been a long time since we met last time, but you haven’t been out of my thoughts. And it seems that it is reciprocal, as many loyal readers kept asking me for the next issue of Spirit of Fuerteventura ®. Heart-warming and giving me that confident feeling that “I must be somehow on the right track”. Well, dear readers, I will do my best not to disappoint you and to make the coming issues of “Spirit” even better. And I thank you hereby, dear readers and customers, for your comments and support to make all this possible.
Dear Reader, it has come to our attention that, although the QR Scanning Codes that we generate for our customers' advertisement are 100% operational, some types of scanning software can have difficulties in reading those codes. The reason - we found out - is that there are major differences in scanning software quality. We therefore suggest that you download your compatible scanning software from www.getscanlife.com, even if you already have a build-in software application on your mobile or tablet. Our experience with this provider is that their software runs very well on all types of systems. The Spirit Team.
Spirit of Fuerteventura enters the BIDI Age
BIDI is the name for our new marketing tool, based on the worldwide QR-code system. Besides many applications, this code can be scanned in by a compatible phone to link to our web-based promotion platform where you can receive clear and condensed information about cooperating businesses on Fuerteventura. It is available to i-Phone, Android and Smartphone users and to Tablets.
Fuerteventura was the last large island in the Canarian archipelago to be developed according to western standards. Since the 60's of the last century many major and minor improvements to the local infrastructure and services have been realised. It would be exhaustive to list them up, but some of the most important ones should be mentioned: potable water and energy in sufficient amounts, asphalted roads, health care and the tourist infrastructure. As Fuerteventura does not have natural resources, the only continuous source of income is tourism, although also here fluctuations in that the amount of visitors can vary significantly, as we have witnessed in the recent past.
