iAmbassadors explore Cape Town in photos – Day 2
With a passion for travel, tourism and social media, Cape Town is the quintessential backdrop for Media Developer Leon Jamarie and his cape adventures.
With the City as his canvass Leon paints the town red covering a range of events and activities in the peninsular while staying true to the traditional culture the mother city offers it’s children,
Originally from Durban, Leon is still an accidental tourist in the city he now calls home and as such is on the line between resident and local tourist able to provide inside knowledge and flavour to the average mundane travel blog.
He is always on the look out for that hidden gem or typical CT party. If it’s fun, relevant, he will cover it.
The #LoveCapeTown adventure continued for our intrepid iAmbassadors as the four international bloggers, Keith Jenkins (@velvetescape), Matt Long (@landlopers), Melvin Böcher (@traveldudes) and Nellie Huang (@wildjunket), were exposed to design in the Mother City, as well as the beauty of nature by taking a drive along the Cape Peninsula.
No stone was left unturned. The group started the day in the city discovering why Cape Town was named World Design Capital for 2014 and travelled the design route with interaction designer Michael Wolf (@michael_w_wolf) stopping at suggested gems such as the Field Office, The Bank, Charly's Bakery and Substation 13. It was then off to Chapman's Peak, False Bay, Hout Bay, Cape Point, Simon's Town and Boulders Beach with its penguin colony.
Below are some images from the expeditions:
