#ExploreWC Campaign 2016

2 girls exploring 1 province in 15 days.

Lerato Bambo

Purpose:
With the soaring foreign exchange rates it makes traveling abroad for South Africans rather difficult and let us not forget the visa restrictions on most destinations. So the idea of becoming a tourist in your own country is rather appealing and it’s also a way of contributing to our economy. Fellow blogger and I decided to brave the cold winter weather and spend weeks exploring Western Cape.

The Team:

Lerato is a “lipstick loving travelette” who aims to get to know the world through cultural exchanges, food experiences and adventure. My mission is to inspire people to not only wonder what lies beyond their immediate horizon, but to go and find out what it is (while being responsible travelers).

Travel and tourism lecturer by day and blogger at www.spicegoddess.co.za at night. Verushka from Durban spent 9 years in London where she developed a severe case of wanderlust. She is a domestic goddess whose recipes take one on a culinary and travel journey around the globe.
