Son Travels To Barcelona To Surprise Mom On Trip

A beloved mom going through a tough year suddenly burst into joyous tears when her son flew from North America to Barcelona and used his mom's cellphone’s location tracking to surprise her on a getaway trip. The past 12 months had been tough for mom Lydia, 56, from Montreal, Canada, as she went through a divorce after 30 years of marriage, her family said. Lydia wanted to plan a trip with friends or family to take her mind off things, but when no one was available, she still decided to head off on a 12-day vacation to Barcelona alone. When her daughter Chiara (pronounced: Kiara), 27, and her son Jacob, 25, found out about their mom's intention to travel, they declared that they would do all they could to support her. Planning such a trip was tough because of a lack of vacation days, Chiara said, but a few days before her mom was set to leave, she informed her that she could be there for the later part of the trip. Jacob, however, had bigger plans. He and Chiara turned on their mom's location-sharing so that they could make sure she was okay while on her trip. Jacob then flew to the Spanish city, where he used the Find My app to head towards his mom. On September 1, Lydia was sitting outside a Starbucks shop near Plaza Catalunya, chatting to her sister on a call. Jacob then approached his mom, recording her shocked reaction, which then turned to tears of joy while explaining to her sister who had arrived.
