My teen’s mobile phone is like a part of her being. It rarely leaves her side and she understands it intuitively. So when we were invited to take part in an Instagram day on Spain’s Costa Brava she was very pleased.
I didn’t actually know what Instagram was at the time (it’s a way of sharing photos online) so was a bit nervous about the day, especially as the rest of the lovely BritMums and Travel Perspective travel bloggers in my group were seasoned Instagramers. But my teen set up an account for me in a nanosecond on my phone and assured me she’d help, especially as Instagram didn’t work on her phone so we’d both be using mine.
The venue was Cadaqués, a charming, out-of-the-way town on Spain’s North-East coast beloved by artists such as Picasso and Dalí, who had a summer house here. When we turned up at the old, whitewashed casino overlooking the bay to sign in I couldn’t believe how many people were there. The place was buzzing with around 200 Catalan and Spanish Instagramers including Joan Figueras, the local mayor and George Clooney lookalike.
