On January 11th of 2014 I attended my very first Instameet and I will say it was quite a unique experience. Imagine hundreds of Instagramers all coming together in one place to share, meet new people, reunite with friends and create. @mrbrock21 helped organize a meet up on #wwim8 that brought us together with Instagramers in Portugal. #twinbridgesmeet.
Constructed by the American Bridge Company, the same company that built the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, the 25 de Abril Bridge in Lisbon is considered the twin to our Golden Gate here in San Francisco. While we were up early with the Golden Gate Bridge as our backdrop braving @karlthefog and all the weather that comes with it, across the globe fellow Instagramers were sharing a similar experience in Lisbon.
It’s amazing to know how technology and creativity can bring so many people together all across the globe. I met some amazing folks like @cimek, @elizabethgilmore, @thereallukes, @hallry and @mrbrock21 to name a few. I look forward to seeing you all again at future Instameets and meeting new Instagramers along the way!
