Top 3 Capetonian entries for My Destination’s Biggest Baddest Bucket List competition
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.
Usually we Mother City lovers don’t need much to boast about our amazing hometown. But when you’re dangling a six-month trip around the world and a US$50 000 cash prize in front of us in exchange for a video tour of Cape Town, like My Destination is currently doing with the Biggest Baddest Bucket List competition, you can be sure that not only will we grab the opportunity with gusto, we’ll also blow your minds with our entries!
Since the launch of this fantastic competition last month and with the 31 March 2013 deadline fast approaching, entries have been streaming in and my co-workers and I have been marvelling at the creativity of Cape Town’s greatest fans.
From running along Table Mountain, our New7Wonder of Nature, to sunbathing at the iconic Camps Bay and enjoying the vibrant nightlife in Long Street, to drinking in the thriving coffee culture and award-winning vineyards of the Mother City, these Bucket List entrants have shown the splendour of our gorgeous city to the world.
Choosing just one favourite is near-impossible so I’ve shortlisted my top 3 entries:
Andrew Brauteseth, one of the city’s most talented creatives, shows us how to live, love, wine and dine in the Mother City:
Ceara McEvoy cleverly combines the iconic sights with the unexpected pleasures of our hometown:
