Where Would You Rather Be Wednesdays: top 10 places to be
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.
You know what, Mother City lovers? You sure know how to show a writer some love … I mean, I put out one simple request for you to tell me where you would rather be on a Wednesday in Cape Town, and not only did you respond in your thousands but boy, did you blow my mind with suggestions!
Of the many gorgeous and great suggestions of places to be I received, it was really, REALLY difficult to narrow them down to the top 10. But here they are:
“The tea garden in The (Company’s) Garden for the best scones ever!” – Danell Wilson-Perlman
“Cecelia forest trail walk or having a nice cup of tea overlooking the sea out Camps Bay way.” – Kevin Charles Pfister
“Table Mountain with the man I love most to share this perfect day with me, quality time and rediscover the beauty of our love, picnic basket and our favourite red wine.” – Mathilda Janse Van Vuuren
“Satori restaurant in Kalk Bay – awesome pizza, pasta, wine and company!” – Nazley Khan
“Where I would rather be on Wednesday in Cape Town? Well, behind the Cecil Rhodes Memorial, at the former little teahouse, which now has grown to a super restaurant. You are sitting there outside, enjoying an enormous panorama. A wonderful place. Love it since 1973.” – Ralla
“On the deck at Rick's Café Américain in Gardens with Kirsty Blackford & Carmen Whitcher” – Deva Britow
“Having olives at The Daily Deli, then a cocktail by the pool at the Cape Milner Hotel, please!” – Jonas Vail
“Would like to just relax on the beautiful grass at Sea Point and just enjoy the scenery & the fresh air that would be great!” – Joslyn Arendse
