Melvin Böcher of @traveldudes talks about Cape Town
Roy Barford has lived in more than 10 cities and towns around the world, but decided to settle in Cape Town. He loves the fact that he can enjoy both urban and natural adventures every day, surrounded by creativity and tranquility.
He is a sports fanatic who can often be found at Newlands rugby and cricket stadiums, while he also enjoys outdoor adventure activities and exploring Cape Town's vast nightlife options.
Roy has written for publications such as the Sunday Tribune, Cape Argus and the Star, and has also blogged for websites such as Southafrica.net, Tablemountain.net.
German travel blogger Melvin Böcher has been loving his time in Cape Town as a guest of Cape Town Tourism. He's been staying at a villa in Camps Bay and he's enjoyed adventure activities such as climbing Table Mountain and cage diving with sharks.
Melvin has nearly 87 000 Twitter followers, who he entertains and informs as he travels the globe. He has been amazed by the way lovers of Cape Town have interacted with him during his trip.
"I've tried to reply to every tweet, but it's been impossible," he says, impressed by the way locals have responded to questions he has asked and the way advice has been offered.
