Exciting News
 
Sometimes life happens and you can’t necessarily always occupy your week.
And sometimes, a change is as a good as a holiday, especially when the change is a holiday!
 
New LPA Exchange Pool
 
         
    At LPA we are always hard at work to pursue more benefits and perks for our
holiday-loving members. In this pursuit, LPA has launched its very own exchange pool. Offering you more opportunities, more flexibility in using your portfolio and new memorable experiences.
   
         
 
 
How it works How it works:
By depositing an LPA week into the exchange pool, you are able to book a different interval from the same pool. The LPA Exchange Pool works on a token system. For a Full Week, you’ll receive three tokens; for a weekend, you’ll receive two tokens; and for a Midweek you’ll receive one token. You’ll be able to exchange your week for a week in the same season or a lower season, for example Blue weeks can be Blue weeks only, but Peak weeks can be exchanged for any available week.
 
 
 
Resorts
 
LPA offers a very competitive Exchange Fee rate, at only R820 per local exchange. There is fantastic
SA availability right now, and stock is moving fast. So be sure to check it out!
 
 
  Visit online.leisureportfolio.co.za,
deposit your week for exchange, browse availability, book and continue through to payment
(R820 Exchange Fee).
It’s as simple as that!

Awesome Rainy Holiday
 
The rainy season is approaching in most parts of the South Africa. We firmly believe that a
destination should be explored during all seasons, but we particularly love spring! Seeing the
animals grazing after a refreshing rain shower, the smell of blossoms in the air, the beautiful
greenery and nature that surrounds us… There are just so many reasons to love spring, so don’t let
a little bit of rain stand in the way of a fantastic holiday experience.
 
 
Braai   Braai
Who said you can’t braai if it’s raining? Unless your braai area is not covered, of course… The smell of braaivleis and rain, the refreshing breeze, the sound of rainfall and laughter… Talk about precious holiday memories!
 
       
  Have a Spa treatment
Many resorts offer a spa or mini-spa. Pop in for a foot and leg, or neck and shoulder massage as you drift away listening to the rain fall.

Rain   Feel like a kid again
Go outside, tough it out, and play in the rain! Be sure to change into dry clothes after or have a hot bath or shower afterwards. But seriously though, talk about awesome spontaneous fun!
 
       
  Tea and cake
What better excuse for a mouth-watering piece of freshly baked cake, than a rainy day. Some resorts have an on-site restaurant or a Le Fera Restaurant, so be sure to pop in for something sweet.

Hop on   Hop onto a tour bus
Sit back, relax and enjoy the passing iconic destinations on a good ol’ tour bus. This is also a great way to spot quirky little restaurants and fun activities that you’d like to explore on a less rainy day.
 
       
  Have an indoor treasure hunt
All you need is a pen, a piece of paper and few clues to keep the kids busy for hours, while you get to relax with a good book or have a nap. Let each clue lead to the next clue, and if you see the kids are getting close to finding the treasure, you can always add a few more clues to continue the hunt (and of course, for you to continue relaxing).

Itinerary   Plan your itinerary
So much to do, so much to see! What a great way to make the most of rainy weather. Start planning your activities for the rest of your holiday, check out guest reviews and start getting excited about the fun stuff you’ll be getting up to soon. Or, plan your next LPA holiday!

Watermelon Lemonade
         
  What You Need:      
Lemon piece ½ medium-size watermelon (or enough to make 4 cups of watermelon juice)
Lemon piece 4 to 5 large lemons (or enough to make 1 cup of lemon juice)
Lemon piece 1 to 1½ cups granulated sugar
Lemon piece 4 to 6 cups of still or sparkling water
Lemon piece fresh mint leaves
      Taste of summer
     
     
  How Do You Make This Yumminess:  
Lemonade drop Blend watermelon until liquid  
Lemonade drop Strain the watermelon through a mesh strainer  
Lemonade drop Pour the watermelon juice into a jug and set aside  
Lemonade drop Juice and strain the lemons

Lemonade drop Serve cold with fresh mint leaves, lemon slices and ice  
     
     
     
  Top Tips:  
Arrow Microwave your lemons for 15 to 20 seconds before juicing them – this will make them a bit softer and much easier to juice  
Arrow Dissolve the sugar in a bit of boiling water before adding it to the mixture (if you do this, allow some time for the lemonade to chill in the fridge)

  DON’T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT THIS  
  Make sure that you print your confirmation letter. This action serves to confirm with the Resort that you will be occupying your LPA week. Plus, it’s the best way to start getting excited for your breakaway. Don’t forget to take your printed confirmation letter along on holiday as you will need to present this at the resort in order to gain access.
