Pure – The Life Experiences Show Update
While I was attending Pure – The Life Experiences Show – I realised that experiences are creating big buzz in the tourism industry.
Experiences transform a travellers holiday into a journey, and specific people are now looking for travel experiences that add value to their lives and – in some cases – even change there lives. At Le Quartier Français we’ve seen this first hand, our Culinary Concierge programmes are all about the experience and our Mrs. Ndaba initiative has captivated the hearts and minds of countless individuals.
I think the important thing to note is that experience based tourism is aimed specifically at travellers not tourists. It focuses on people who go on travel adventures where there is always the possibility that they could fall in love, with their destination, and decide to stay forever. This type of travel experience aims to give individuals genuine insight into the people and places their visiting. It’s about the traveller immersing themself in a foreign culture rather than hanging out on the periphery.
I took this experience based approach to tourism to heart when I was in Marrakech. I decided to sink my teeth into the fabric of Morocco by staying in the heart of the Marrakech Medina. It was definitely an unforgettably colourful experience, one I’ll discuss in more detail in my next blog post.
Franschhoek Champagne Festival
Just a reminder that the Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival is taking place in Franschhoek over this weekend.
If the last two years are anything to go by it’s going to be exceptional! An entire weekend dedicated to the magic of the bubbles – what more could any self-respecting woman (or man with amazing taste) ask for?
Pack the sunscreen, the hat, the designated driver and head on out to Franschhoek for a day or a whole weekend of sheer bubbly heaven.

Meet and Eat Mademoiselle Lamb Burger at the Franschhoek Champage Festival
Mademoiselle Lamb Burger, the very tasty niece of Lamb Burger (may he rest in peace), will be attending this years Franschhoek Champagne Festival. She’s not quite as big as Lamb Burger but she’s just as delicious.
Mademoiselle Lamb Burger generally doesn’t do public appearances. In fact the 2009 Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival is her first and for that reason those attending should consider themselves very lucky!
If you’d like to meet and eat Mademoiselle Lamb Burger you will find her at the Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival Le Quartier Français stand on Friday the 4th, Saturday the 5th and Sunday 6th of December.
