Be a Tourist in your City

With the current Rand/Dollar/Pound/Euro exchange rates , travelling overseas is not possible for many. But everyone dreams of one day travelling overseas and discovering the Travel Bug. My solution is why not become a Tourist in your own City.
Be a local Tourist

A Tourist in your own City means :

Discovering the hidden local gems and it would not cost you too much. Since moving back from London in 2010 , I have been discovering my city through new eyes. Each time I am out and about I amazed at just how beautiful my City is.

4 Ideas to Explore your City

  1. Pack a picnic basket with your favourites eats and head to a local park with friends or family. Carry with you a ball and get some exercise in while enjoying the sunshine.
  2. Find our where your local Park Run is. Grab some friends and have a fun morning chatting with the girls while enjoying the scenery.
  3. Find local museums in your city. Most are free to enter.
  4. Go on a Roadtrip you will be amazed what you will find along the way.

Since I have started lecturing Travel and Tourism this year, I have started to see my City in a truly different light. I have fallen in love with Durban and love exploring my city. This has made me realise just how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful place.

Durban is one pretty damn awesome city. The weather all year round is warm and the people are so friendly and welcoming. Durban is a popular destination for local and international visitors. There is something for everyone in Durban.
Last year I became a tourist in my own city by staying the weekend at a city hotel. Boy oh boy ! it was total fun and did not cost an arm and a leg. I have a pretty adventurous family who love going on roadtrips and Sundays are spent having picnics at the beach and various parks. So start looking at your surroundings in a different way. Become a tourist and explore your city.
