In Cape Town we are all gearing up to support our boys in the Green and Gold jersey! For their first game against the fierce World XV (15) team at Newlands this Saturday! The kick-off is at 5pm so if you are going make sure you get there early to enjoy the festivities around the stadium!
In this year’s international friendly match, five Boks – Bakkies Botha, JJ Engelbrecht, Flip van der Merwe, Craig Burden and Gurthrö Steenkamp – will be wearing the World XV colours instead of the traditional SA green and gold, which should make the game pretty exciting.
Each year Bastille Day brings the best of France to Franschhoek for a week filled with French cuisine, games, markets even sporting events for the more active individual!!
Party à la Françoise (French-style) at the centuries-old French Huguenot fête that is poised to, once again, take over Franschhoek for Bastille Day, France’s Independence Day. On Saturday, 11 and Sunday, 12 July 2015 visitors to Mzansi’s French corner can look forward to a two-day feast featuring good food, great wine and enthralling entertainment. This time around, the annual get-together celebrates its 22nd birthday as both a Cape Town calendar highlight and a must-do event for foodies worth their salt.
Whether you want to fill your weekend with the sport of your choice, a good laugh or show your appreciation for the French culture – you will be spoilt for choice this weekend! But be sure to collect Avios when you are buying your petrol at BP, staying at a Protea Hotel, buying groceries or evening renting an Avis car rental. If you have an Avios credit card – pay for your purchases with that and collect 1 Avios per R10 spent. Before you know it you could be redeeming a flight on British Airways for your next holiday!
