Bubbles to ring in Spring

By Renee Van Der Watt

We're heading into Spring and things are really heating up at the Cape town office. The clubs have their teams and orientations are almost done. Now it's time for medicals and visas. Who would have thought that going to the doctor could be so exciting, right? I have been enjoying the activity of Facebook and it's so good to see how many of you have already made new friends. The visa might seem daunting at first but we are all here to help so relax and enjoy this last month. With every step you complete, the reality will start sinking in. I can't believe the final stretch is upon us. This recruitment period has flown by! All of you have been fabulous and I have truly enjoyed getting our 2013/2014 teams together.

While we all wait patiently for October to arrive, why not take a day to enjoy some bubbly at the House of JC Le Roux. Rain or shine I guarantee it would be worth it. The new renovation is gorgeous and the sparkling wine and champagne has been a SA favourite for many years. Think of it as sipping a bit of home before you experience all that the USA has to offer. The fiancĂ© and I decided to visit them in April and enjoyed every second. 

The service was great and we felt welcome from the second we entered the building. After taking the tour and learning about how champagne is made, which by the way is rather fascinating, you then choose the tasting package that best suits your palette. Bubbles and nougat, I'll take that any day of the week. There is more to see. The new pink Le Fluerette cocktail bar, snacks on the outside deck and the gift shop. All in all one fun afternoon out. 

Well done again to all successful applicants. You are going to have the time of your life and I look forward to ready some blogs from the other side of the pond in the near future.
