Welcome Digital Nomads To Las Palmas!

Hi there! Welcome to my blog. My goal is to share here valuable information so you can enjoy your stay in the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

I said Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Yes. It’s a bit long, but it’s the real name of the city. Everybody says just “Las Palmas”, but the full name is “Las Palmas de Gran Canaria”. [We will explain this in another post – don’t think this is a thrilling story to start with!]

Why Started This Blog About Digital Nomads in Las Palmas?

That’s an interesting question. If you want the shorter answer, I would say it’s obvious: this blog will be a key part of The Lofito website, so it was a good way to connect to potential guests who want to stay in the studio.

But the truth is a bit longer. I’ve been around online digital nomads environments for some time -not long, to be honest- and I personally admire the good vibes that anyone can feel when getting involved in their circles: how do they help each other, how receptive they are to meet new people or how open-minded they are to live new places … and that really inspired me!

To certain extent, a part of me feels share those feelings all digital nomads share…. but without being propertly one of them.

So Here’s My Contribution to Digital Nomads in Las Palmas

I wanted to be part of this somehow.

I live and work in Gran Canaria and not planning to move abroad (at least, in the short-term), but I wanted to offer my little contribution -apart from The Lofito- to the thing.

And there was something I can offer!

Most blogs, websites and social networks about digital nomading in Las Palmas are made by digital nomads, expats or foreigners living on the island, which is great! But I felt there was a point of view that was missing: the local perspective.

And this is where I come in.

I have travelled myself and also lived abroad for years. Not like a digital nomad, but I know what it feels when living in a place that is not your homeland. Especially, when you don’t know the language (luckily this was not my case).

Sometimes, when I look back into the past, I wish I would have counted on more information before arriving that city. Don’t get me wrong, I truly enjoyed my experience, that’s right, but sometimes I missed to have lived the real city, the one locals live.

It was not until a couple of years passed by that I started to find another city and a different lifestyle: the one natives live. And that’s something tourism has brought -especially in the Canaries.

So… if you, as a digital nomad, are going to spend just a couple of months here, why waste your time with other’s experiences and not live yours? Do you want to live a real experience in Las Palmas?

Then, you’ve reached the right place! See you in the next post!
