Our little online space

8 years ago me and my 3 best friends met each other in high-school for the first time. You could say it was love on the first sight. Due to studying abroad, doing voluntary work or au Pair, none of us is in our home town right now; we are spreaded all over the world: Amsterdam, Windhoek (Namibia), Santa Cruz (Teneriffe) and San Francisco (USA). Being friends for such a long time and having them around at any given moment makes it very difficult to accept the fact that we probably won’t see each other for several months. But we figured a way out how to stay connected during the period of time and to keep everyone always up-to-date. We created a shared instagram-account of which the 4 of us have the log-in. It is a private account where only our closest friends are following us and can see what each of us is experiencing in their day-to-day life. Somehow it also creates a feeling of experiencing the stuff all together because we so many details of each other’s environment. I just love how we found ‘our little space’ on this platform to share everything and anything we want!
