Liezel van der Westhuizen‘s top reasons to #LoveCapeTown City Breaks
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 celebrating 1 000 days in the Mother City on Tuesday 18 June, 2013 and from her numerous photos, social media posts and on air shout outs, it’s clear for all to see that media personality Liezel van der Westhuizen loves Cape Town.
From hosting two programmes on local radio station 94.5 Kfm to being a columnist for weekly entertainment publication The Next 48 Hours, and now the presenter of the recently launched 48 HoursTV’s show Living It Up, the gorgeous former Pretoria resident is one busy girl – but it doesn’t keep her from exploring and enjoying the multitude of sights, attractions and activities in Cape Town.
