Cape Town welcomes #MeetSouthAfrica travel bloggers

Bloggers love South Africa – we know this from our #LoveCapeTown campaign. This campaign saw us bringing four international travel bloggers (@traveldudes @velvetescape @landlopers and @wildjunket) to Cape Town in July 2012 during a social media drive in which Capetonians interacted with the bloggers and their followers, telling the stories of Cape Town and her people.

Cape to Rio connections

Photo by Skye Grove The links between South Africa and Brazil can be drawn back a long way.  The seas that supposedly divide these two countries in some sense unite them. Both ancient ships and hi-tech yachts have charted their course along these ocean lines. Pedro Cabral, the 15th century Portuguese explorer, was on his way to the Cape of Storms (named so by Bartolomeu Dias, another Portuguese explorer of the age, and one of Cabral’s contemporaries) when he landed on the coast of Brazil.

Spain vs Portugal: Photos from the match

The photographs below, of last night’s 2010 FIFA World Cup™ round of 16 match at Cape Town Stadium, were taken by Skye Grove.

Portugal looking forward to a World Cup return to Cape Town

As Portugal prepares to take on reigning European champions Spain at Cape Town Stadium tomorrow, coach Carlos Queiroz says that the team should learn from their 0-0 draw against Brazil in the group stages. Queiroz says that his team loves Cape Town and feels like coming home here. They are hoping the outcome of tomorrow’s match will be similar to their crushing 7-0 victory over the People’s Republic of Korea last week.
