WATCH: Expedition Earth visits Cape Town

Posted by Nidha Narrandes on 8 March 2019

On 8 April 2018, Expedition Earth began. Topher Richwhite and Bridget Thackwray set off with their vehicle ‘Gunther’ to explore 7 continents and over 70 countries in 2 years. Their mission is to bring awareness to environmental issues worldwide.

Their story is inspiring beyond words. Two weeks after their first date they made a pact to take on this enormous journey. Being Topher’s first relationship, they didn’t know what to expect, but they have discovered things about themselves and the world that has cemented their bond.

During a recent visit to Cape Town, we caught up with them for a chat.

 

You can follow their journey on www.expeditionearth.live
