It’s Tourism Month and Cape Town Tourism’s #LoveCapeTown campaign is back! The good news is that this time round I’ll be part of it too. A year ago, I wrote about the success of the last #LoveCapeTown campaign, and the tremendous traction it got on social media. A year later, I’ve been invited to participate. The timing couldn’t be better either as I launch into my new freelance career.
#LoveCapeTown is run in partnership with iAmbassador, and involves three international bloggers - Rachelle Lucas (US) Abigail King (UK), Carol Moré (Brazil) – visiting Cape Town from 18th September till 7th October 2013. Each blogger will have the opportunity to explore the city, focusing on three themes: luxury travel/lifestyle, food/wines and design.
Street art, spas and beach horse-riding…
I’m so excited to be joining one of my favourite bloggers, Abigail King, from Inside Travel Lab for the Heritage Day weekend. Some of the cool things on my itinerary include a beach horse-ride in Kommetjie, pampering at the 12 Apostles Spa and a visit to the Fringe District. Being a street art fanatic, I’m most excited for the street art tour of Woodstock, which has been on my Cape Town to do list for a while. These are all new activities for me, just goes to show how much there is to to in the Mother City!
I’m super stoked for the weekend, especially since we’ll be staying at the uber sexy #LoveCapeTown villa, Apostles Edge in Camps Bay. Wish I could have spent more time in Cape Town but I have another exciting trip coming up soon! More details tomorrow…
Kudos to Cape Town Tourism for involving the local blogging and Instagram communities this year and recognising that locals are your biggest ambassadors. If you’re in Cape Town, why not get involved in the local Instagram community and join their #LoveCapeTown Instawalk on Monday 23 September.
