Cape Town’s Ceara McEvoy heads off to London for Biggest Baddest Bucket List finals
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
She’s impressed locals with her passion for the Mother City in her amazing video and scored hundreds of votes on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and more ... Now exuberant videographer Ceara McEvoy heads off to London as one of 10 finalists in My Destination’s Biggest Baddest Bucket List competition on Saturday 18 May, 2013.
I met with her for a quick catch-up and coffee at the quaint Café Mozart in Church Street on Monday 13 May, 2013, just days before her scheduled departure, and it was clear that Ceara is just bursting to show her international competitors what she can do.
Having already explored the bustling activity, diversity and beauty of Cape Town’s famous Long Street and Table Mountain, the Constantia resident is determined to win the six-month vacation and $50 000 prize so that she can discover 25 countries of her choice.
Winning this incredible prize won’t be easy, though, as Ceara will have to compete with her fellow finalists in a series of exciting challenges and activities along the way.
Says My Destination Cape Town’s Andrew Thompson: “The week is designed in the spirit of My Destination, and to test their ability to stay cool and travel well under pressure - if they can't survive Winner's Week, then there's not much chance they'll survive 6 months on the road. Ultimately we want to find out if they'll be worth watching as they film their travels as they tick off the ultimate bucket list.”
In the video below, Ceara shares her hopes for the competition and why she loves Cape Town:
Cape Town Tourism wishes Ceara well during her final leg of the competition. Follow her fantastic journey on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and her blog. For more information about the My Destination Biggest Baddest Bucket List competition, please visit http://www.mydestination.com/bbb.
