My Destination is focused on offering unrivalled levels of local information. This is what we pride ourselves on, and it's our promise to our users.
Therefore, each destination is run by a team on the ground who have their fingers on the pulse and write from a first-hand experience, whether they are trying out places to eat, visiting sites of interest, undertaking activities, exploring hidden 'secrets', and speaking to the locals who are 'in-the-know'. Our local experts take every effort to accurately capture this information through photography, videos, virtual tours and writings. It can be truly said that our content is fresh, local and 'hand-made'.
Our Local Experts in Cape Town
After growing up in Johannesburg Andrew headed south to study at the University of Cape Town where he did a degree in media, English, politics, and went on to complete an honours degree in Media Theory and Practice. During his final year Andrew dabbled in journalism, and worked freelance for a variety of local websites and magazines, in between which he travelled extensively around u, and worked for 3 months in West Virginia, in the United States. After leaving university he took on freelancing full-time, and specialised in feature, entertainment and travel journalism. The travel bug bit once again in late 2008, and Andrew saw himself return to the States for a 7 month working holiday, which started in Vail, Colorado, and took him to 17 cities throughout the country. He eventually returned to South Africa, and after a brief stint in Joburg made the inevitable pilgrimage back to the Mother City. When the opportunity to run MyDestination.com/CapeTown popped up, it was a no-brainer, combining his passions for travel, journalism, technology and, of course Cape Town, into a nice little package.
