MyDestination’s winning Vagabrothers Jet into Cape Town
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.
They beat nine other finalists to win the coveted My Destination’s Biggest Baddest Bucket List Competition and travel all over the world for six months… now winners Alex and Marko Ayling (known as the Vagabrothers) are headed to gorgeous Cape Town!
Set to jet into our beloved Mother City on Wednesday 30 October, the brothers, who hail from sunny California in the United States, are determined to savour everything our vibrant hometown has to offer them and boy, is she laying out an adventurous feast…
The boys have been trekking all over the world enjoying their US$50 000 prize, filming their crazy adventures which include visiting harems in Istanbul, exploring The Shard, London’s tallest building and channelling their inner cowboys in Ecuador, but here is what’s on their thrilling Bucket List in #lovecapetown:
- Breath-taking vistas: From experiencing seven unexpected adventures on our Wonder of Nature, Table Mountain, to admiring the Peninsula from aboard the hop on hop off City Sightseeing Bus, the dynamic travelling duo are sure to see just why Cape Town is such an award-winning travel destination.
- Adrenaline-pumping adventures: Nothing gets the heart racing like a close encounter with the predators of the sea so shark cage diving is a must, as are a motorcycle sidecar trip around the Cape, a bird’s eye of the city via a helicopter ride and an unforgettable surfer’s experience at Muizenberg.
- Groovy digs: Exploring the Mother City, while utterly amazing, will be tiring and the boys need somewhere to lay their weary heads. The Daddy Long Legs and Ashanti will be the Vagabrothers’ home away from home while they enjoy their stay in #lovecapetown.
- Meeting the locals: If you want to truly get to know a city, you have to hang out with her residents. The brothers will be entertained by some of the Mother City’s most influential bloggers, including photographer Andrew Brauteseth.
