Cape Town - Images speak a thousand words, and with the rapidly growing “digital world”, images are still (thankfully) quite important. There are some pretty cool social media tools like Pinterest and Instagram, that are dedicated solely to image sharing.

You are what you pin
By looking at one’s Pinterest profile and boards, you can have a look at their aspirations, their dream destinations, and well, pretty much everything that a person is willing to share.

According to Travel & Leisure, Pinterest recently released a breakdown of what people pin on different days, and it looks like Saturday is the kind of day that has people thinking about travel destinations.
