The best part about travel is the new and unexpected experiences. They make you see things differently and give you something to talk about when you get home.
Open Africa has selected five of South Africa's most popular bloggers with different profiles to take part in a campaign to encourage people to travel with a more open mind. All they know is they are going on a holiday somewhere. The destination is secret. Follow them as they pack their bags and get ready to do travel differently.
