Where Would You Rather Be Wednesdays: beaches, wine farms and gardens
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.
Take advantage of the fabulous weather and spend a great day outdoors in the Mother City today. Whether you’re admiring the views of the city from Signal Hill, exploring the historical treasures of the Russian STS Sedov tall ship at the V&A Waterfront or hiking up Table Mountain, there is something for everyone in the beautiful Mother City.
If you’re still in need of some inspiration of Where You Would Rather Be this Wednesday, have a look at what your fellow Cape Town fanatics have to say:
“I see myself at Moyo’s at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. That is an absolutely beautiful place.” – Liezl Daniels
“I would rather be at Alluvia Wine farm in Stellenbosch, in front of a blazing fire ... enjoying a glass of their finest Cabernet Sauvignon.” – Lianti Loubser
“10 min away from my home ... breath taking views and yip ... cosy warm atmosphere inside the restaurant ... (Pedlars On The Bend ... stunning restaurant and Constantia Uitsig as well...” – Juliana Kolb Manzoni
OK, so you’re suitably inspired and now I need to know from you Where Would You Rather Be in Cape Town this Wednesday.
