Take to the skies to view the Mother City
Natalie Roos’ body was born in Johannesburg… but her soul was always Capetonian. At the age of 14, Natalie started work in the television industry, presenting popular local kids TV show, KTV. Ten years and another TV job later (presenting celebrity gossip show JIP on Afrikaans music channel MK), Natalie made the move down to Cape Town where she started her blog, Tails of a Mermaid (www.tailsofamermaid.com). Her love for the internet and all things communication-driven became a natural progression to a career in Social Media, where she worked in an agency managing the online presence, content and reputation of various brands.
Natalie’s passions include cats, communication and Cape Town.
There are many ways to see the Mother City. From the top of Table Mountain, from the deep blue of the Atlantic Ocean or from the winding roads that weave across the city…but the very best way to marvel at the majesty of Cape Town must be from the sky! I recently had the opportunity to view my favourite city in the world from a helicopter and it gave me a whole new level of appreciation for this magnificent place!
I set to the skies with Cape Town Tourism member NAC Makana armed with Garmin’s brand new VIRB camera and was absolutely awed by the experience. Between filming on Garmin’s fun new gadget and snapping away on my iPhone I hardly had the opportunity or inclination to close my mouth, which was gaping between gasps at every breathtaking new vista.
