+VoiceMap 's Android app still has some bugs, but I used it yesterday on a walk from Muizenberg to Kalk Bay it worked well. 
Listen to immersive, intimate stories about the places around you, with loc...

+VoiceMap now has 18 location-aware audio walking tours in Cape Town. There's Kirstenbosch with a botanist, Mouille Point with a surfer, sailor and wordsmith, and most recently, the historic city centre with a descendent of the slaves that built it. There are walking tours all over the city, including Simon's Town, Bo Kaap, the Company's Garden, Muizenberg and the East City Precinct, and all of them are by Cape Town's favourite storytellers. 
Download VoiceMap from the iTunes App Store, or search the App Store for VoiceMap using your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

A series of postcards I designed for +VoiceMap , with quotes from my favourite Cape Town audio walks. 
 
You can choose from 19 walks at https://voicemap.me/walk/cape-town now, all of them in different neighbourhoods by different storytellers.

One of my favourite +VoiceMap audio walks so far.
 
Join Aric Allen on a rollercoaster ride down the Sunset Strip, where gangsters & gamblers beat a path for rock&roll http://buff.ly/1wyUNvT
How gambling, rock 'n roll and celebrity excess made the Sunset Strip.

For the past three months, +Lauren Edwards, John Fearon and I have been working on a way to connect a voice and a location to tell intimate, immersive stories. It's called VoiceMap, and while it's still very much in beta, we already have a number of engaging walks through Cape Town, narrated by accomplished storytellers. Justin Fox talks about shipwrecks, sea creatures and stormy lives in Mouille Point. Eve Sandler talks about why the Company's Garden is a modern-day refreshment station, and how she became an accidental terrorist. Jeanette Clarke makes fynbos magical at Kirstenbosch.

We have an iPhone app, which you'll find at bit.ly/voicemap. And if you're a storyteller, we'd like to work with you. VoiceMap grew at least partly out of my frustration with trying to tell Cape Town's story in a single voice, from a single perspective, when I was the editor at GreatGuide. We want personal stories, about your connection to a place, because we believe that they make the world more meaningful. If you're interested, send me a message.
Cities are made of stories. Hear them.

A single photo from everywhere we've been since January 2011. On Thursday, when we arrive in Shanghai, this lengthy dogleg of a journey will come to an end. A week later, we set off for Cape Town overland.

+Old World Wandering: A Travelogue's Kickstarter campaign, which launched today. It’s an ambitious, exciting project, but it’s terrifying too because if we don’t hit our target, we get nothing. You can support us by choosing a reward: a handwritten thank you postcard from the Silk Road, for instance, or a set of professionally printed photographs, a limited edition hardback book, or a long weekend in Istanbul. You can pledge
as little as $1 or as much as $2,000, or you can help us by spreading the word. Either way, thank you!
