Getaway Travel Blog Conference 2012 in photos and video
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.
Featuring talks about travel photo blogging, travel in the digital space and how to write to drive traffic, by some of the most tech-savvy and well-travelled presenters of the industry, including Cape Town Tourism CEO Mariëtte Du Toit-Helmbold, Andrew Brauteseth (@guy_with_camera), Mike Sharman (@mikesharman) and Dave Duarte (@DaveDuarte) and Cape Town Tourism's four international i Amabassadors, this year’s conference showed that the travel industry is embracing social media and its fantastic spin-offs wholeheartedly .
