I’ve Only Just Recently Met Dhanusha Dhoorgalu
She has such a cool name don’t you think? Say it with me, “Dha-nu-sha”, how cool does that not sound! When I finally met the person whom I’ve been emailing for the past year I quickly learnt that she’s even cooler than her name. Dhanusha Dhoorgalu aka Miss Dhanusha aka Her Wineness is a young lifestyle blogger making her mark on the local blogging scene. She loves exploring our beautiful country and although originally from Durban, she rates Cape Town to be the best city in South Africa. Must be her love for wine which has influenced her decision to relocate to Cape Town. I consider Dhanusha to be an avid wine connoisseur, as she is often spotted hanging out with a local contingent of wine bloggers doing their thing, tasting and exploring all that which the Cape Winelands has to offer.
Blogging, exploring, studying and enjoying life, she’s quite the busy lady and it’s my pleasure to introduce you to a Wonder Woman on the rise, Dhanusha Dhoogalu!

If you could describe yourself in one word what would it be?
When did you start blogging and what was your motivation?
The beginning of 2017. I wanted to share my thoughts online and inspire others.
What process do you have in place for generating content for your blog?
I have to admit my process is not very organized. I usually have a few ideas for blog posts, these come to me whenever, I keep it in mind. I take the photos for a blog post, I do the research and then start writing. This usually takes some time to do as I edit the photos as well. I then have a friend read it to edit in case I have made some mistakes I didn’t pick up. Thereafter I publish and double check it is all fine.

Your unbiased opinion, which is the better city to live in, Durban or Cape Town?
Cape Town without a doubt. I was born in Durban and it’s not a bad city or anything it’s just not for me. There’s so much more to do in Cape Town and it’s just so beautiful.

Hard to choose just one but I would say paneer chutney and also pasta (veg alfredo)
