Cape Town - If you’re in South Africa right now, or preparing to visit, you are very lucky - the country is filled with natural, monumental beauty. We urge you to explore it from corner to corner, top to bottom, and inside-out if need be. Wedged between the Atlantic and Indian ocean, South Africa has approximately 3000km of coastline area and is 1 233 404km² in size. That’s a sizeable area with which to explore. 

In Today’s photo of the day, we place great value on the importance of exploring your own country, really getting to know where things are and what should be where it isn’t. Not travelling through your own country, is like buying a house and only occupying one room – leaving the others empty.

Imagine standing on the top of a building and being surrounded by mountainous land and sea; that’s Cape Town.
