Holidays in Turkey

Eguino in Istanbul

With so much work and projects, for almost two years I have a bit forgotten one of my passions. This time I went to Turkey, a country I really wanted to visit, especially Istanbul. The first part of the trip was in Cappadocia, but it the most interesting and wonderful was this city along the Bosphorus: Hagia Sophia, Sultan Ahmed Mosque, Topkapi Palace, the Cistern, Grand Bazaar and Spice Bazaar,...

Summary of Cappadocia and Hoodoo and lots of photos and recommendations of Istanbul on my blog.

9 September 2011


Few days ago I was able to practice skyding in Seville. It was a great experience, especially the first seconds of freefall after jumping from the plane 4.600m high (15,000 ft). It was also memorable time to open the parachute and be "stopped" in the air in a complete quiet and calm. A great experience I would like to repeat.

Trainer online marketing and social media

Online Marketing teaching

Nowadays, a part of my job is to provide training in online marketing and social media. It is an activity that I had never thought as a job because I've never liked being a teacher. Most surprising for me is that I like it. Usually it is quite rewarding as attending business are really keen to learn. Links to workshops on the blog: Eguino Marketing Online.

New blog

15 March 2010

Nuevo blog: Eguino, geek a bordo

After some time thinking about it, I've finally decided to have my own blog: Eguino, geek on board. It arises from the practice of sharing opinions and articles with Internet friends and because the social networks I use like Twitter and Facebook are not very well suited to my needs. As I explain in the first post I'm not sure how it will evolve, but initially will be short articles, easy to read, about Internet, entrepreneurs, projects where I work and some more playful topics such as music or games. I hope you like and will colaborate with comments.

Best personal Internet space - XI Edition of the Award for Best Web of Asturias 2009 ha recibido el premio al mejor espacio personal de Asturias 2009. La gala, que se celebró en la hemeroteca de El Comercio, fue sencilla, cuidada y con unos finalistas de lujo. Este ha sido un reconocimiento inesperado que recibo muy orgulloso y que me ha dado la posibilidad de compartir mis proyectos con muchos nuevos visitantes. También he podido conocer a otros profesionales del mundo del desarrollo web en Asturias de los que espero seguir aprendiendo como en su momento hice en Q-Interactiva.

Estos son algunos enlaces interesantes en los que se puede obtener más información sobre el evento:

Colaboration with Alondra Comunicación & United Nations

23 November 2009

This week will be dedicated to update the application developed one year and a half ago by Alondra Comunicación for Millennium Development Goals Campaign (MDGs) from United Nations.

I have to modify some texts, update the terms of use, improve a little more interactivity with the user, add a few buttons, and slightly modify the hardware and as an extra, add some Javascript/AJAX in order to make the application even more attractive.

For further information about the development and use of this application, I recommend reading the article, which I wrote in this web some time ago, with some pictures and screenshots. Simplest Portfolio

5 November 2009 - Simplest portfolio

The first domain I bought in 2005 was It was the first page I developed writing the code in the notepad and learning how to use the famous and already forgotten tables.

With the premiere at the beginning of 2008 of, the small sister ".net" passed just to redirect. But everything has changed today: won't be no more a simple redirección to become a "Simplest Portfolio". It's a simple webpage, which shows information about the projects that have developed, with who I have worked and offers some ways to contact me.

I keep working... in secret

15 October 2009

HTML question mark

Although I haven't created any full web page available to show for few months, during this period time I haven't stopped working. The development has been divided chiefly in three sections well differentiated:

Continuing collaborating with Isertia in 4 small projects.

Developing a web (design+programming) of advertisements with photos, videos and a complete agent of contents, whose name I can't share.

Improving and bringing up to date the internal programming of several webs of my business Grupo Vaya.

Colaboration with Isertia

10 June 2009


For two weeks I was collaborating with Isertia, Asturian business, which is becoming an important reference about the multimeda development to national level.

My work consisted of creating two small microsites for two official businesses in Gijón. We had to develop a CD in web format to show the results of the preceding periods. It was a first contact with their work and I expect that I would be able to repeat again.


4 May 2009

I updated the web page of the "Feria del Vehículo de Ocasión y Accesorios de Asturias", which is already completed.

In this case the new design was made by the client himself. It is a dinamyc page with a complete control panel to modify the information, the images that are shown and the two photo galleries in the web. There is also the usual section for contacts and another quite original, where it is explained with Google Maps how to arrive to the Feria enclosure according to the city of origin of the visitor.

Alumni Panel

After two long months of work, on Friday I presented the new web page and the INTRANET of the Jesuit Alumnae Association of Inmaculada School (Gijón). There is a public part with general information about the Association and their activities and a small social network for more than 7000 Alumnae that there are all around the world, to offer a tool to keep them communicated.

There was an obsolete database with many errors that I had to upload. I have designed a complete application, which includes mailing and news services, a magazine and a powerful search engine.

The newspaper "El Comercio" published an article on Saturday 25 of March with a photo of the presentation, where there are references to my work: read article

Web Spanish Federation of Jesuit Alumnae

1 September 2008

Jesuit Alumni

From January of 2008, I am the responsible for the webpage of the Federation. The programming of the web was obsolete, with various broken links and old design style.

I decided to remake the web and took that opportunity to create a database to manage the information of the Associations as well as the news. It was also necessary to adapt the structure of the sections to a new and more intuitive one. Being an official page, it follows every W3C standard. It is clear, simple, and modern in it’s design:

Voices agains poverty - United Nations

15 July 2008

Voices Unit of United Nations

Two long and intense months of work since Alondra Comunicación offered me this project. It was a MIC (Multimedia Information Center) with an interactive application for the United Nations, which was shown in the Expo Zaragoza 2008. During this time, the visitors could find information about the Millennium Development Goals and to record videos and messages against poverty. Next, the PIM was travelling to different acts all around Spain. I wrote an article explaining the process of design and development in detail and with images. READ THE COMPLETE ARTICLE

My time inside this company has arrived to the end. After 6 months of work and learning it is time to turn the page.

In this time I learned a lot of things about web programming. It's a shame that they can't count on me for new projects, although I felt with capacity and attitude to accept more responsibilities.

I will be always be grateful to them for this great work opportunity they offered me. You should know that some day I will return to show you again my aptitudes to the Counter and Pro8!!! Regards. Semper Fi.

Another premiere: the complete redesign of and the updating of the database.

Holidays in Berlín

6 March 2010

Holidays in Berlín

Anteriormente había visitado en diversas ocasiones Alemania, pero nunca había estado en su capital. Así pues decidí pasar unas vacaciones la última semana de Febrero en Berlín. La ciudad está todavía en periodo de ronovación y mezcla edifícios modernos con otros más antiguos, muchos de ellos reconstruídos. Museos interesante, mucha historia y, como no, muchas Bratwurst. Estas son las fotos de Alemania.

Holidays in the north of Europe

26 July 2009

Geyser in Iceland

In July I was able to do a small pause on the way to dedicate to one of my hobbies: travelling. This time I have visited Iceland and Lithuania. The first stop was a short stay from 3 days to this European island, which is divided in equal parts between the Tectonic Plates of Europe and America. In fact the culture is similar to the American, refering to aspects as food, the cities, the cars, ... Reykjavík, the capital, is not especially pretty and there is no too much what to visit. The best is to make excursions to the impressive volcanic nature of this island to see the volcanos, geisers, waterfalls, glacials and lava mountains. Here there are some photos of the trip to Iceland.

In Lithuania I visited again the beautiful peninsula of Neringa with the long beaches and 30ºC of temperature and at the end I spend some relaxing days in Vilnius.

Among so many flights, 8 on total passing for 5 different airports, I had time to make many new photos of airplanes of different companies that can be seen here.

Holidays in Lithuania

3 June 2009

Weekend in Lithuania

The last weekend of May I made a lightning visit to Lithuania to attend with Ginte to a wedding there. A brief stay, quite tiring due to the two trips of 20 hours each one in few days. The celebration was quite calm comparing with the weddings in Spain. I really liked and enjoyed a lot with the traditional dances. This is the photo with the bride and groom. As I spent a lot of time in the airports, I had enought time to make new photos, which I updated in the section of airplanes.

Weekend in Budapest

10 March 2009

Weekend in Budapest

I travelled from the 6th to 8th of March to the "Pearl of the Danube" to attend one more Assembly of the European Confederation of Jesuit Alumnae. On Friday we had a more playful plan visiting the city and having a boat trip by the Danube. Budapest surprised me pleasantly, as I didn't expect such a wonderful and monumental city. These are the photos.

Weekend in Vienna

20 October 2008


On the weekend of 17th to 19th of October the Assembly of the European Confederation of Jesuit Alumnae was celebrated in Vienna. Few days with a lot of work and meetings in which I almost didn't have free time to visit the city. Visit some photos I could do. I was surprise by huge palaces, the building of the Parliament, Opera house,... No doubt, I have to come back to Vienna to visit it again with more calm.

Travel to Belgium and France

17 March 2008

Belgium and Paris

Some days before the Holy Week I prepared a small trip to Belgium, more exactly to Brussels. I also visited such nearby cities as Antwerp and Bruges, the nicest one. The best part was a short trip by train to Paris, a city with huge monuments, too many tourists that I enjoyed a lot. Photos of the trip.
