L’AFRIQUE, C’EST CHIC
Brussels may be known
as the capital of the EU,
but it is also home to the
Matongé quarter, a lively
slice of African life just
south of the city centre.
Head down there to shop
in the markets, listen
to jazz, and experience
a blend of Congolese,
Ethiopian and West
African influences.
Just the tonik
Are you dancing
the latest
dance? Come to
Paris, the epicentre
of a seismic new
movement that
is now causing
tremors in the
coolest clubs all
over the world: the
expressionistic
hand waving of
Tecktonik!
80
THE PULL OF PUGLIA
Out in the furthest
corner of Italy is
the region of Puglia,
which retains that
quintessentially Italian
air that attracts so much
admiration from the rest
of the world, not only
in its mouthwatering
cuisine, but also in its
spirit of independence
and resourcefulness.
74
STATE OF GRIND
Do you tend to go for
bog-standard coffee for
your morning caffeine
fix? If so, shame on you!
Coffee can be as subtle
as a cocktail, as our writer
finds out at a barista
school run by Illy in its
home town of Trieste,
Italy. Check out the city’s
café culture, and have the
best latte of your life.
64
HEAD TO-MA-TOES
Splat! And a tomato
thwacks you in the jaw. No,
you’re not a bad comedian,
but a participant in one
of Spain’s messiest and
most unusual traditions,
La Tomatina, reputed to be
the world’s biggest food
fight. Get your five a day in
the most unceremonious
way possible, and be sure
to keep your goggles on. P

WELCOME
A few words from Michael O’Leary
Thank you for choosing to fly with the world’s
favourite airline – Ryanair!
Ryanair now flies over 1,100 routes to/from
over 150 destinations across 26 countries in
Europe, and you are one of 73 million passengers
who will fly on one of our more than 250 aircraft
this year with the guaranteed lowest fares.
This summer, we welcome the opening
of many more exciting new routes and our
continued growth will ensure that we deliver the
guaranteed lowest fares and no fuel surcharges
to a record 73m passengers this year.
We recently announced our 44th base in
Seville (Spain) to our passengers which is our
8th Spanish base, as we continue to deliver
consumer choice and much lower fares than the
high fares being charged in Spain by Air Berlin,
Iberia, Vueling and Spanair.
Last month we exposed easyJet’s failure to
publish its weekly on-time statistics for the last 60
weeks. Ryanair believes easyJet has been hiding
these details since May 2009, because they know
they can’t compete with Ryanair’s punctuality,
just in the same way that easyJet can’t compete
with our low fares either. Perhaps easyJet will
now break with the past and confirm that they will
resume publishing weekly details of their on-time
stats, so that passengers can compare easyJet’s
punctuality with that of Ryanair, and assure
themselves that easyJet can’t match Ryanair’s
pricing or our punctuality either.
Ryanair is committed to guaranteeing the
lowest fares on every route we operate. We
are so confident that you won’t get a cheaper
fare elsewhere, that if you find a lower fare with
a competitor, we will refund you double the
difference, guaranteed.*
I hope you enjoy your flight with us as our
fantastic crew take great care of you. Thank you
for choosing to fly with Ryanair and I look forward
to welcoming you and your family onboard many
more low-fare Ryanair flights in the near future.
Best Wishes,

CONTRIBUTORS EVERYONE KNOWS THE JACKSON 5
track Dancing Machine, right? What a song! So
groovy, bouncing bass line, sweet harmonies
and MJ doing the old James Brown. Now, if
there’s any song to throw some shapes and let
your hair down to on holiday, for me, this is it.
It ain’t exactly the electro beats of the
dance craze Tecktonik, which has burst out
of Paris in the last decade and is sweeping
across the party clubs of Europe and North
Africa (see our feature on the movement on
page 70), but it represents the same thing.
And that is letting go on holiday. Not in a
“dance like there’s nobody watching” way
where you abandon your hang-ups and
embarrass yourself to the detriment of the
dance foor, with everyone looking at you
in horror as you express total disharmony
with your care-in-the-community
manoeuvres. Um, actually Tecktonik is a
bit like that if you ask me, but then what do
I know? I am a 35 year-old who still drops
moves to Earth, Wind & Fire!
What I do know is that dancing on
holiday is about letting go in a stylish way,
appreciating the music with sensory and
physical satisfaction. Of course it should
be, and can be, sexy as hell. We all want to
pull when we go on a party weekend to
Barcelona — book online now for our new
Ryanair hub at El Prat — and if you want to
succeed you have to know your moves and
pull them of with a calm assuredness.
There’s an LED dance floor in Europe that’s got your name on it
The holiday disco is like a huge public
audition — you can’t look too keen, or get
too drunk and end up failing around like a
happy-clappy hippie. You know people are
looking at you waiting to check out what
you’re capable of, and that’s what makes it
such a buzz. This is your chance to get the
girl, or get the guy, and show that you’ve not
a care in the world because you’re away
from home and ready to party.
Of course, there are other ways to get
away from the stresses of home, and that’s
to enjoy a relaxed idyll. And nowhere does
this better than the iconic heel of Italy’s boot,
Puglia, whose transcendent local cuisine
and timeless landscapes ofer a unique way
to escape from it all. We had to take some
time to soak up the wonders of Puglia (see
our feature on page 80), afer an of-the-cuf
remark about the region made by one of our
writers caused readers to beg strongly to difer.
And indeed, we concur wholeheartedly: this
time it was our tastebuds that were dancing
and, rather than failing around, we reached
new heights of relaxation.
So whether on the dancefoor, or in the
beauty of nature, let your hair down and
have a great fight!

Rites of passage
ROI DE L’OISEAU
15–19 SEPTEMBER, LE PUY-EN-VELAY, FRANCE
Every September the streets of this
town near Lyon stage a full-blown
Renaissance re-enactment, complete
with street performers, troubadours,
acrobats, jugglers, equestrian games and
archery. The fun and games date back
to the 16th century, when a competition
was held to discover the region’s best
archer. Whoever was able to shoot
down the most birds was crowned “Roi
de l’Oiseau” (King of the Birds).
Head down there today to join
scores of historical actors and residents
who spend the weekend in tented
camps staging mock battles, acting out
daily life and displaying crafs from
days gone by. When the sun sets, the
night-time parades and concerts strike
up. Surrounded by more than 6,000
costumed performers you’ll feel like
you’re truly stepping back in time.

MILBENKÄSE
WÜRCHWITZ, GERMANY
Milbenkäse means “mite
cheese”, and is sometimes
also called “Spinnenkäse”
(“spider cheese”). The creepy-
crawly name refers to the
tiny helpers that take part in
the fermentation process.
Small balls of quark, salt and
caraway are rolled up and
placed in a box for three
months with rye four and
an army of Tyroglyphus
casei (cheese mites),
who diligently digest the
aforementioned balls. This
shouldn’t seem too strange,
since we happily enlist the
help of bees to make honey.
But with Milbenkäse, the
mites remain in the cheese
even when consumed! This
gives the cheese a ripe and
bitter taste that may put
some of. Nevertheless, it is a
popular delicacy produced
exclusively in the small
town of Würchwitz, about 45
minutes west of Altenburg
airport. There’s even a cheese
mite memorial in the town,
honouring those who gave
their lives so you could enjoy
a nice afer-dinner snack.

How to be cool…
WHEN YOU BUMP INTO SOMEONE
WHO DOESN’T REMEMBER YOU
It seems everyone is cursed with at least
one individual who never remembers
who you are – it may be a work colleague,
it may be the spouse of a friend. Less
common, but it still happens, is bumping
into people from school or university who
clearly have no idea who you are. How do
you deal with this in a cool manner, when
what they are clearly saying is: “You are
an un-memorable blank of a person, who
I erased from my brain as soon as you left
my field of vision.”?
It could be that they do it on purpose
as part of a status game, it could be
that they have genuine problems with
recollection. Either way, they deserve
your pity. Don’t let their absent-
mindedness, or purposeful rudeness,
put you on the back foot. Just shake
hands, fix them in the eye, and proffer
one of the following explanations:
“I looked very different last time
you saw me. I’d just come back
from a North African desert trek.”
“Honestly, it’s not a problem. I
forgot Kevin Spacey’s name the
other week; he gave me such a look!”

HORIZON FIELD, AUSTRIA
Hiking can be a solitary activity, a
determined march over hills and dales,
occasionally encountering a fellow
walker with a quick nod and “hello” before
persevering on. Yet hikers in the mountains
around Vorarlberg in western Austria now
have more company than usual — thanks
to artist Antony Gormley who has installed
100 of his trademark life-sized human
beings all across the rolling landscape in
the biggest piece of outdoor art the
country has ever seen. Spanning 150km

— and taking in the communities of
Mellau, Schoppernau, Schröcken, Warth,
Mittelberg, Lech am Arlberg, Klösterle, and
Dalaas — the fgures will remain standing in
position until April 2012.

Art and entertainment spill through the streets, alleys, clubs, galleries and

of dance, exhibitions, contortionists, sports and children’s entertainment, as well
as an ever-reliable musical line-up. This year’s theme will focus on “Neighbours”,
encouraging visitors to “love your neighbour as yourself”, while challenging the
notion of the grass always being greener on the other side of the fence.

BLACKPOOL ILLUMINATIONS
BLACKPOOL, UK
This much-loved event has been called the
greatest free light show on Earth, attracting
curious visitors to the north-west seaside town
since 1879. Audiences at the early shows were
at a loss for words, describing the spectacle as
“artificial sunshine”. The Big Switch On weekend
is happening 3–5 September, with a mystery
celebrity flipping on the lights to a crowd of up
to 15,000 people. With the lights glaring, the live
music and fun continue late into the night. The
celebrations will also take on a contemporary
feel, looking at how the concept of light and
art work together to produce entertainment –
through interactive installations and more.

WORLD BOG SNORKELLING CHAMPIONSHIPS
LLANWRTYD WELLS, UK
Bog snorkelling? If you think this sounds downright nasty you’re spot on, but that’s
part of the fun! Bog snorkelling entails manoeuvring along two lengths of a 55m
peat bog trench on the outskirts of one of Britain’s smallest towns, Llanwrtyd Wells
in Wales. Chances are this event was conceived afer a few pints at a diferent sort
of watering hole – but, nonetheless, the competition has really caught on. Past
international contestants have come from as far afeld as Russia, Australia and New
Zealand, and all aim to race down the bog in less than two minutes – hoping not to
drink the bog as they go. Wetsuits are optional, but certainly recommended.

THE BRAEMAR GATHERING
BRAEMAR, UK
For the past 900 years, The Braemar
Gathering has been a resolutely royal
afair. Held near Balmoral in Scotland
– the summer home of the British
royal family – the Queen herself is
joined by thousands of spectators
focking to see athletes from far and
wide battle it out in “heavy” events
such as caber tossing, and “track”
events like hill racing and tug-of-war.
If you’re not motivated by the idea
of sweaty Scots then perhaps you’d
enjoy the sound of bagpipes foating
through the hills or the folk dancing,
with each troupe dressed in their
Highland tartan. Kick up your heels
and join them – but kicking up your

LILLE FLEA MARKET

Boasting 33 continuous hours of bargain-hunting
across 100km of stalls with 10,000 sellers, the
Braderie de Lille is Europe’s largest flea market.
Taking place from 2pm on the Saturday to 11pm
on the Sunday, the all-night extravaganza attracts
over 2 million people and dates back to the
Middle Ages when servants were allowed special
privileges to sell their masters’ old possessions.
Today, numerous musical performances are on
offer as you browse the antiques, clothes and
jewellery stalls, while moules-frites (mussels
with chips) have also become a deeply rooted
tradition. All of which explains the mini-mountains
of mussel shells piled in front of local restaurants,
as they compete for the honour of highest pile.

palette with a tip of your flat cap to labels like
Ralph Lauren and Lacoste.
There are two colours you’ll need to have
in your wardrobe – salmon pink and Kelly
green, as those professional bods in fashion
call it (see bikini stripes below). Boys, channel
the vibe of a New England yacht club with
nautical references: stripy tees, anchor
motifs and coloured denim (pale English
rose complexions should stick to cool pastel
colours in blue, green or purple that will have a
love-in with your skin tone). Girls, go to the top
of the class with polo-shirt dresses, pleated
skirts, ballet flats and pastel capri pants.

accessorising. So, perhaps try a scarf tied
around the strap of your tote bag, hair bows
and bubblegum lip-gloss. Ditto minimum
make-up, minimal hair styling and maximum
attitude (due to your intellectual superiority).
With school out and preppy in, sex up
the look with super-short shorts, polo-shirt
dresses unbuttoned to your cleavage, and
knee-high socks. Aubin & Wills also do a hot
line in jock underwear for girls with branded
waistbands and ribbed cotton gussets that will

PHILEAS FOGG
MOMENTS 6
STROKING ELEPHANTS IN LONDON
Fogg famously clambered onto the back of
a hulking pachyderm on his Indian journey.
Today, you can get close-ish with the Keeper
for a Day experience at Whipsnade Zoo: £270
(€324) buys you the chance to hang out with
the wrinkly grey beasts.

PADDLE-STEAMING DOWN THE ELBE
Our globetrotting British chum used the
steamboat for a good half of his travels. Yet while
you can no longer cross the Atlantic on such
a rickety vessel, you can pootle up and down
the Elbe river in one. Dresden’s where your
steamy adventure starts, thanks to Sächsische
Dampfschiffahrt and its handsome fleet.

The website at www.stoomtrein.org is all in
Dutch, but it has some cracking pictures of
proper old-fashioned steam trains on it, which
we’re assured you can ride. We think you
depart from somewhere called “Beekbergen”
but, to be honest, that may just be Dutch for:
“Sorry, this railway has now closed.”

THE GOOD LIFE IN CROATIA
In another fix, Fogg makes use of a yacht called
the Tankadere, which cuts him through the seas
around China. They may not throw in an Indian
Princess (by now Fogg is with some hanger-on
called Aouda), but the nice people at Croatia
Yacht Charter will lend you a majestic craft for
anything up to a jaw-dropping €26,000 a week.

SLEDGING IN SCOTLAND
Fogg takes a wind-powered sledge across
Nebraska after his train is hijacked by Native
Americans. And while we’ll be damned if we can
find anywhere in Europe you can do that, you can
go sledging with dogs in Norway, Sweden or even
Scotland’s Cairngorms National Park. It’s puppy
power instead of puff power, but apart from the
occasional smell, it’s exactly the same.

has been popular with
everyone from European
royalty to Charlie Chaplin
and Balzac. Produced by
Maraska, which grows
the fruit at its own huge

“WHEN I WAS 20 YEARS OLD I TOOK TWO
months off and went alone to Brazil. That was
an experience. I came back stronger. I had fun
too. Say Brazil, and all these images come to
mind: beaches, palm trees, coconut water,
samba, those little bikini things?
“But my home is in Spain. I live in Madrid,
and my football team is Atlético Madrid. I come
from a family of actors and I am very attached
to Spanish cinema – so although I love other
places too, Spain is home.
“There’s something really inside of me that
needs and wants to work in my own language,
which is partly why I made one of my new
films, Biutiful, in Barcelona. It was a tough
role. But if you want to be an actor, you have
to be really open, let yourself be taken by
emotions. The difficult thing is how to get back
to yourself again afterwards.
“I work really hard to try to make people
believe it. In Vicky Cristina Barcelona I was like:
‘Who in the world is going to believe that these
women are killing each other for me?’ But
Woody Allen thought it was going to be right, I
just had to lose a lot of weight!
“That film stereotypes people. First, Woody
makes fun of them. He introduces the clichés in
a very plain way for us to see, like: ‘Wow. Latin
lover. American tourists. Spain. Wine. Come
on!’ But then he makes fun of that, and starts
to destroy that for us, to see that behind those
clichés there are people who share the same
fears, the same dependence, the same goals.
“As for the rest of Spain, well it has beautiful
places but I’m not going to tell you where
because then everyone will know! The south
of Spain is beautiful and the food in the north
is great – I would love to eat a good piece of
steak there. My most recent travels were to
Bali to make Eat Pray Love with Julia Roberts.
I like the way they interact with nature there.
There are fruits you can only imagine and
beautiful Thai food. It’s very shocking to see
how little we are and what our real place on
this planet Earth is, because it’s huge. Besides
that I was very happy to be at the beach!”

COMMENT
Comedian and Travel Channel presenter Danny Robins enjoys the open road
I ’ M ON A BUS FULL OF TOURI STS,
careering at what can only be described as
life-threatening speed along a narrow, winding
mountain road. To my right, picturesque villages
whizz by too fast to see; to my left is a sheer
200ft drop to the sea below. The bus driver is
texting and eating a sandwich at the same time.
I’m trying really hard to fight the urge to
scream whatever the Greek is for “slow down
you maniac, you’re going to kill us all!” while
mentally scanning my holiday pics wondering
which one the Foreign Office will release to the
media when my remains are eventually dragged
from the ocean, half-eaten by hungry dolphins.
Yet I needn’t have worried; we arrive at
the airport absolutely fine. The driver didn’t
even spill his beer. And, as I peel my terrified,
three-kilos-lighter self out of the bus, I’m
reminded that going on holiday isn’t just about
embracing different languages and customs,
it’s also about embracing different approaches
to road safety. If travel broadens the mind, it
also sometimes narrows the sphincter.
For instance, one shouldn’t assume that
just because you are driving at high speed
on a motorbike you need to wear a helmet.
You may do that where you come from, but
there are plenty of countries where a helmet
would make you a) hot and b) look like a girl.
Likewise, just because a sign at a junction says
“stop”, it doesn’t necessarily mean you actually
should stop, it could mean “drive through
really fast without looking”.
I admit, in Britain, we are fairly safety
obsessed. In some offices, you can’t even brew
a hot drink these days without first erecting
a blast-proof screen. I once bought a bag of
peanuts with the warning “may contain traces of
nuts”. I have a theory that the colder it is in your
country, the more uptight you are about health
and safety. By way of evidence, I present to you
Sweden, an undeniably chilly land, and Spain,
somewhere I think we’ll all agree is pretty warm.
Preferred means of transport for Swedes? The
Volvo, a car famed not for its speed or ability
to attract chicks but for its safety. How do the
Spanish like to get about? Running down the
street chased by enraged bulls. I rest my case.
Feel free to disagree with my theory. Do write
to me and I’ll get my security team to carefully
open the envelope to make sure I don’t sustain
any paper cuts, before replying to you with
hypoallergenic ink written on paper that “may
contain traces of wood”. Better safe than sorry.

CULTURE ON THE COSTA
As the most populous autonomous community
in Spain, Andalucia is home to some of Spain’s
most glittering jewels: Seville with its wild
flamenco and famous oranges; Granada,
home to the stunning Alhambra citadel and
intoxicating Moorish history; and Marbella,
glitzy playground to the stars. And then of
course there is Malaga, whose phenomenal
historical foundations, increasingly vibrant
network of restaurants, bars, parks and shops,
and proud cultural centres are attracting
visitors for more than just sun, sea and
sangria, and providing momentum for the
city’s present bid to become European Capital
of Culture in 2016.
This may seem like a long way off, but the
build-up has been going on for centuries
– and is everywhere you look. Founded by
Phoenicians in 770BC, Malaga – like many
other cities on Spain’s Mediterranean coast
– passed through Roman and Arabic hands
before finally coming under control of the
Spanish in 1487.
This combination of influences is visible
in the wealth of archaeological remains and
monuments dotted around the city. But
nowhere does this extraordinary mishmash
appear more dramatically than on the
battlements of the Moorish Alcazaba fortress.
Overlooked by Gibralfaro Castle, a site dating
back to the Phoenicians, it looms over an
almost complete Roman amphitheatre.
Uncovered in 1951, little more than a
decade after Civil War had devastated Spain
(and Malaga in particular), this amphitheatre
dating from the reign of Emperor Augustus
was an important discovery that helped to
connect the city’s proud ancient history with a
new, progressive era. Playing the progressive
role were the likes of Pablo Picasso, whose
birthplace is here, and whose mind-boggling
work has attracted high-minded art lovers for
decades, which has helped to forge Malaga
into a quietly cosmopolitan city that has
shrewdly turned chaotic boom and investment
to its advantage.
Today Malaga is putting creativity and
culture at the heart of its development,
regenerating old markets and dilapidated
Park life
Malaga’s botanical gardens
are a must-see, filled with a
host of different plants
buildings into music venues, art galleries
and theatres, as well as maintaining and
modernising a bevy of historical sites, such
as the Roman amphitheatre and the city’s
stunning cathedral. The pedestrianisation
of a once-congested historical centre has
also helped to link all of these important
architectural and cultural gems.
Not only are these improvements doing
wonders for Malaga’s image, but they’re also
having a positive impact on local traders,
culture vultures and almost everyone who
doesn’t drive a taxi. People, including me,
who have often used the city as a springboard
directly from the airport to the costas, are now
holding our horses, sticking around for a few
days and having our preconceptions of the
place enjoyably blown to smithereens. We then
return home almost evangelical about how
marvellous it was.
Consummately running the gamut from
old to new, sophisticated to hedonistic, this is
a city that lives comfortably with its past yet
knows the true value of having a good time.
Having risen from the ashes of Civil War, I can
honestly say that Malaga will impress even the
most hardened checklist tickers among us
with its dramatic reinvention. This reinvention
continues today; always looking to the future,
it is eager to place itself even more firmly on
the map by winning its name as a European
Capital of Culture. Thanks to an enticing
combination of gregarious Andalusian spirit
and a vibrant cultural revolution well underway,
Malaga is looking better than ever and winning
plenty of new admirers, among whom I
evangelically include myself.

PICASSO, PARKS AND PLAZAS
Resist the lure of Malaga’s beaches for a few
hours and you’ll be rewarded with a compact
assortment of historical treasures, modern
masterstrokes and backstreet curiosities that
are all too often overlooked by sun seekers.
Start in the centre of town at the top
of grand shopping street Calle Marqués
de Larios. Named after the aristocrat and
entrepreneur who was key to the city’s
booming textile industry in the late 19th
century, it is, rather appropriately, a polished
marble shrine to the big-name clothing stores.
Just behind it on Plaza de la Constitución, and
dedicated to more spiritual fulfilment, you’ll
find Iglesia del Santo Cristo de la Salud
( 1 ). One of three ancient churches within
walking distance, it is arguably the city’s most
impressive both inside and out.
Heading east, look out for the arched
entrance to Chinitas Passage, a confluence
of tight back streets. If you can avoid the
sparks and cigarette smoke generated by knife
sharpener/city historian Manuel Ocón, ask him
more about the history of the passage, where
his father’s (now his) shop has been for about
three quarters of a century. Sharpen up your
Spanish, then continue to the Cathedral of
Malaga, an imposing Renaissance gem.
Moving west towards the Alameda Principal,
you’ll come to the newly refurbished Mercado
Central. Here you’ll find more characters to
chat with, one of the most impressive stained-

If you want to stretch
your legs, take a walk
up to Gibralfaro Castle
( 5 ), a 14th-century
fortress built on a
site attributed to the
founding Phoenicians,
overlooking the city
from a height of 131m.
Down below you can
also roam around the
Alcazaba ( 6 ), an
11th-century Moorish
palace. You’ll also be
rewarded if you trek
(or take a taxi) to
La Concepcion
Botanical Gardens
( 7 www.laconcepcion.

in 1857 and open to
the public since 1994,
this exquisite open-air
collection of tropical

one of Europe’s wildest

underrated botanical
gardens. Spectacularly
carved into hills just
north of the city, one
highlight not to miss is
the Around the World in

to visit the Mirador

Devour your lunch in the shade of the lush
Paseo del Parque and recharge ready for
CAC Malaga ( 2 www.cacmalaga.org). This
contemporary art space opened on the banks
of the Guadalmedina river in 2003, and was the
first major boost to an area that had suffered
some neglect in the past. The regeneration is
still underway, so during the day would be the
best time to see it.
Over near Plaza Merced, the Picasso
Museum ( 3 www.museopicassomalaga.
org) in the sumptuous Buenavista Palace is
dedicated to the life and work of Malaga’s most
celebrated son. The permanent collection
includes paintings, sculptures and sketches
from his early forays into cubism and later
re-interpretations of the Old Masters.
To sample the latest creativity, join the
locals at Teatro Echegaray ( 4 www.
teatroechegaray.com), a former cinema in the
newly pedestrianised backstreets spreading
north of the cathedral. Opened last year, it’s
one of the city’s hottest dance, music and
theatre hubs. To visit one of the earliest, check
out the Teatro Romano at the foot of the
Alcazaba fortress. It was uncovered in 1951
after being hidden underground for centuries.

HIP HOTELS AND RURAL RETREATS
Whether you’re using Malaga as a base for a
trip around the Andalusia region, excursions
along the Costa del Sol or a tapas blowout in
the city’s back streets, you can find hotels to
suit all tastes and budgets.
Tucked behind the central train station,
Barcelo Malaga ( 8 doubles from €125, www.
barcelomalaga.com) is a surprisingly laid-back
design hotel that’s just as popular with a
working crowd – thanks to some impressive
conference rooms – as it is with savvy
weekend-breakers. But everyone wants to take
advantage of the giant metal slide in the lobby
when they’re checking out.
More refined frolics can be found within
the 100 or so luxury rooms of the Vincci
Seleccion Posada del Patio ( 9 doubles from
€118, www.vinccihoteles.com). In the heart of
the historic centre, this sumptuous five-star
was built over the remains of an ancient Arab
wall and remnants of a Roman port – both
of which can be accessed from the hotel.
However, most guests opt for the vertiginous
view of these architectural treasures through
the glass floor of the stylish Wall Bar.
If material goods are more your thing,
then check into Petit Palace Plaza
Malaga ( 10 doubles from €95, www.
malagapetitpalaceplazahotel.com) just off
Calle Marqués de Larios in the shopping

Barcelo Malaga offers

one of the day’s highlights, affording sweeping

The more intimate Hotel del Pintor ( 12

colourful foyer, featuring works by malagueño

The Malaga province
is home to some
of Spain’s most

Away from the coast
you’ll find huge
panoramas dominated
by mountains and
sweeping valleys –
dotted with pristine

hillside pueblos. The
best way to enjoy
this perspective and
experience the rugged

is either to hire a car

rural hotel. Or perhaps
both. Three of the best
in no particular order
include Hotel Molino

a luxurious yet family

BUDGET EATS TO MICHELIN TREATS
Regardless of the number of people who rave
about how amazing the tapas is in Andalusia, it
will always be bar food to the locals. Even with
its position in the tapas triangle – with Seville
to the north-west and Granada to the north-
east – and easy access to a Mediterranean fish
tank, an abundance of lip-smacking ingredients
is often secondary to the quality of the
conversation. However, there are a few places
that even the locals would rave about.
Built on the site of a former convent near
the city’s cathedral, La Rebaná ( 17 www.
larebana.com) was never going to get away
with being mediocre. That said, it took a while
before its award-winning architecture found
the perfect partner in Carlos Caballero, a
one-time winner of Andalusian Young Chef of
the Year. Here you can enjoy well-executed and
reassuringly expensive tapas dishes that echo
both classic and contemporary influences.
Offering a more economical but no less
adventurous menu, Uvedoble ( 18 www.
uvedobletaberna.com) is an exciting new arrival
to the historic streets near the Teatro Romano.
Mixing well-known regional flavours with well-
travelled influences, ambitious young chef/
owner Guillermo concocts delicious dishes
like tuna tataki and chunky gazpacho that are
quickly building a sturdy reputation.
If it’s just hearty salads you’re after
(with the option of stuffed savoury pitas
for reinforcement), then cheap and central
Comoloco ( 19 ) is the place to be. Arrive before
2pm to make sure you bag a seat, or for a larger
selection of wallet-friendly tapas bars and cafés
head west to Avenida de Plutarco in Teatinos.
If your student days are well and truly over,
book a table at contemporary MR.1 ( 20 www.
restaurantemr1.com). Perched between the
Alcazaba and Gibralfaro Castle, its terrace
offers one of the best night views over the bay.
A little harder to find, but with an equally
impressive terrace and view, El Campanario de
Ignacio ( 21 www.elcampanariodeignacio.com)
in the picturesque hillside district of Cerrado
de Calderon offers a romantic ambience. Try
Ignacio’s curried monkfish (fish dishes are his
speciality) if you want to heat up proceedings.
Set in a former mansion house in La
Victoria, Restaurante Montana ( 22 www.
restaurantemontana.es) boasts stylish
interiors and an enclosed terrace for dining
under the stars. However, for a star of the
Michelin variety – the city’s first and only – La
Malagueta hosts the high gastronomy of José
Carlos García at Café de París ( 23 www.
rcafedeparis.com). Sample his intelligent blend
of classic Mediterranean cooking, inspired
by his father, and sublime culinary alchemy,
inspired by working with some of Spain’s top
chefs, within a smart and intimate space that
retains a refreshingly informal atmosphere.

SOMETHING
FISHY
Sardines divide
opinion like no other
fish. You either love
them or hate them.
Most landlocked city
dwellers, for example,
hate them because
they nearly always
come in tins and smell
really, well, fishy –
when all they wanted
were the omega-3s.
People who live on
the Costa del Sol, on
the other hand, have
lovingly incorporated
them into their culinary
heritage and, being
Spaniards, have turned
cooking and eating
them into an enjoyable
summertime tradition.
Preparation includes
scrubbing, salting and
finally skewering about
six sardines side-by-
side onto a thin stick.
The stick is then dug
into the sand around
an olive or almond
wood fire. The trick is
to cook them with the
heat not the flames,
in order to keep the
flavour. Sounds simple
but it takes a pro to
do it right. Scan the
chiringuitos (beach
bars) along Malagueta,
Pedregalejo and El Palo
beaches, for smoking
barbecues surrounded
by espetos de sardinas
(skewered sardines)
being grilled to order.

Across town near the lively bars of Plaza
Merced, you’ll find a more typical example of
Andalusian decoration. The terracotta floors,
wall-mounted flowers and cool interior patios
of El Pimpi ( 28

www.bodegabarelpimpi.com)
combine to create an oasis of calm that has
attracted a fair few of the Spanish glitterati
over the years, as proved by the numerous

GET SOME TAPAS WITH YOUR TIPPLE
Malaga is awash with bars, but why so many?
Well, if you consider that the average Spanish
bar is a place to eat your breakfast, mid-
morning snack, lunch, mid-afternoon snack
and dinner, it’s not so surprising.
The Spanish love to meet, eat and drink, and
one place to indulge in this lifestyle is Bar Lo
Gueno ( 24

www.logueno.es). Open since 1967,
it serves bacalao al pil pil (fist-sized chunks
of cod in chilli oil), melt-in-the-mouth rabo de
toro (bull’s tail) and albóndigas (meatballs)
to locals who prefer the bustle of this narrow
bar to the bustle of shoppers on nearby Calle
Marqués de Larios. Just around the corner, La
Cueva de 1900 ( 25

www.lacuevade1900.es)
is a more spacious option, where the multitude
of cured hams swaying from the ceiling should
give you some idea of what to nibble with your
local Victoria beer or wine.
For a taste of the region’s sweet fortified
wines, Antigua Casa de Guardia ( 26

www.
antiguacasadeguardia.net) is an old favourite.
Very old. Since 1840, this barrel-packed
bodega has been giving life to its role in the
local saying: “Malaga has two cathedrals: one
for religion, the other for wine.” Alternatively,
join the crowds at El Marisquero ( 27 ), a lively
seafood bar that benefits in trade and shade
from the central market. Grab a small beer and
large plate of fresh prawns, and look up at the

dress code may apply,
it’s worth remembering
there’s a time and a
place for some parties.
During the summer
months, the best
party atmosphere is
undoubtedly found on
the beach – where a
starry sky, warm sand
and a cool breeze come
as standard. For a
refined early evening
atmosphere, expertly
grilled sardines
and a refreshing
sundowner, head over
to El Candado beach
– a recent addition
to the city’s coastal
offering, boasting a
semi-private beach
and plush restaurant.
Further up the coast,
the chiringuitos along
the beach in the
former fishing district
of Pedregalejo are a
more bohemian option.
They’re also popular
with language students
attracted to the area by
a number of excellent
language schools.

NUTRITIOUS
NUTS
Along with an
abundance of olive
groves and vineyards,
the Malaga province
is covered by almost
20,000ha of almond
trees. Spreading
out around the
Guadalhorce Valley,
Antequera and
Axarquia, this is one of
the main reasons why
Spain is second only to
the US as the world’s
biggest producer of
almonds. So along
with picking up a
litre of flavoursome
olive oil or a bottle
of characteristically
sweet Malagan wine on
your travels, it’s a good
idea to look out for
fresh almonds or local
delicacies – including
cakes, biscuits and
oils – that are derived
from the exotic little
nut. You can also find a
few weathered almond
sellers dotted around
the city dry-roasting
their wares on mobile
carts – handy if you
fancy a boost of
vitamin E while you’re
knocking around the
old town. Unfortunately,
this year has been a
particularly bad one for
production, after heavy
rainfall in the winter.
So remember – you’ll
be doing your bit for
an ancient industry by
scoffing a few bags!
IN THE BAG…
VINTAGE CLOTHES AND WINES
This is a city where locals dress to kill, and
nearly everyone seems to eat like a king – so
it’s pretty obvious where your pocket money
should be heading. Hunt for antiques, art,
books, clothes and regional delicacies around
Malaga’s uneven lattice of high streets and back
streets and you’ll find a true taste of the region.
Calle Marqués de Larios may well be one
of Spain’s most emblematic high streets,
but at the end of the day it remains just
that: a thoroughfare of big-name stores. You
will, however, find a few classics among the
fashion, mobile phone and shoe shops. For
savoury treats, pop around the corner to
Gorki ( 32

www.gorki.es), a lively tapas bar
where you can take home any of the wines,
hams or cheeses on the menu.
Next, scan the streets around Plaza Uncibay.
Cincoechegaray ( 33

www.cincoechegaray.
com) is among a new wave of independently
run hot spots selling a carefully curated
selection of Spanish (and some English)
literature, graphic novels, and art and design
tomes. They also have international music and
coffee to keep your concentration levels up.
A few streets away, Find de Luxe ( 34

www.
finddeluxe.com) sells a wide range of vintage
clothing to a demanding, nostalgic crowd,
and across Calle Carreteria you’ll find the
clothing and accessory balance turned on its
head at La Habitacion de Kate ( 35

www.
Like getting sunburnt on the first day, it’s
almost inevitable you’ll see someone in Malaga
that makes you think: “Holy moly! She looks
amaaaazing in that dress.” To get that dress
for yourself, try Como Pez en el Agua ( 36

www.comopezenelagua.net). Kitting out the
foxiest women in Malaga with chic Spanish,
French and English designer brands like Raasta,
Jocomomola, Stella Forest and Olga de Polga,
this is the thinking woman’s/genius boyfriend’s
dress shop of choice.
Skate shop Griptape ( 37

www.myspace.
com/griptapestore), located on Calle de la
Victoria, which runs parallel to Plaza Merced,
is the essential stop if you forgot to pack your
board shorts and flip-flops in the rush to make
her holiday perfect. And while the rest of the
nearby shops between Plaza Merced and the
Picasso Museum may verge on the tourist trap
variety, the antiques at Almonedas Angelo
( 38 )

are well worth a rummage.

Griptape Grript r t
Como Pez en el Agua ( Como Como Pee e P
lahabitaciondekate.com). This diminutive shop
of (mostly handmade) treasures is owned by

like bags, broaches, umbrellas and dresses –
but better. Ask about the Fabrica workshop
they’ve just started with local designers Paloma

5 / WINE SELECTION
The winemaking industry
of the Malaga province
is one of the oldest in
Europe, famous for its
sweet, fortified wines. The
areas around Antequera,
Velez-Malaga and Competa
produce gallons every year.
Try out a few top varieties at
tapas bar Gorki.

1 / DECORATIVE TILES
Malaga is a great place to
seek out Andalusia’s famed
pottery and ceramics. The
city itself is also known for
its metallic-tinged pottery
and brightly coloured
azulejos (tiles). I’ve already
had my kitchen done so
I found these ones in the
airport for my niece.
€12

3 / CHUPA CHUPS
Edible Spanish history in
a can. The company was
founded by Spaniard Eric
Bernat in 1958, the name
comes from the Spanish
verb chupar, meaning “to
suck”, and the logo was
designed by Salvador Dalí.
Get some from Lepanto on
Calle Marqués de Larios.
€9
2 / TARTA MALAGUEÑA
Featuring the fruits of
the Malaga province,
this is a mid-afternoon
classic. Made with sponge
drenched in sweet Moscatel
wine and liberally peppered
with almonds and raisins,
it’s a bite-sized taste of the
countryside served up all
over town.

Malaga-born singer Diana

her album No te olvides

RYA_42_58_Africa in Brussels_ED_JM.indd 60 28/07/2010 13:55
61 RYANAIRMAGAZINE
The neighbourhood started out in the
1950s when the Belgian empire was breaking
up. Back then it was just a small residential
area in the heart of the Ixelles district. But
soon enough the African population outgrew
the local one and the area was rechristened
Matongé. Today, a quarter of Brussels’
inhabitants are of African descent, and
Matongé is their playground.
But it’s also a neighbourhood to take a load
off and relax in – attracting Europeans, Asians
and others to share the same platters of food
and mumble away in their own customised
English beneath the boom, pop and fizz of
African jazz. It’s only when you spot the black,
yellow and red flag flying high over a building
that you remember you’re in Belgium.
One of the main streets is the Rue Longue
Vie (the “long life”), and it’s where Matongé
gets spicy. A row of bars with names like Cap
à Fric and Soleil d’Afrique manage to capture a
beach-side atmosphere only a couple of blocks
from the European Parliament. These bars are
run by mothers who brook no quarter when the
young lads out front get loose on the rum and
drop a glass on the floor. They’re the real bosses
around here and no one forgets that twice.
They’re also the best cooks. Kokob is an
Ethiopian restaurant that operates as a gallery,
concert venue and impromptu cultural centre.
At its heart are two Ethiopian ladies, Baraket
Salomon, 33, and Heria Janal Abdulshukur, 50.
They will cook you the finest meal you’ve put
past your lips but you’ll never get their secrets
– you’d have to surgically remove the recipe
from their brains.
“No no, you’ll go and start an Ethiopian
restaurant on the next street if we tell you,” says
Baraket. I wonder how long my freckles and red
hair would let me get away with that one!
The Matongé quarter is indeed, as Andrea
puts it, “a friendly place and an opportunity for
African countries to show off their culture”.
Django Reinhardt and Johnny Hallyday may
set Belgian feet a-tapping, but in Matongé
these home-grown singers may as well be
cleaning products. Here, if it’s not West African
hip-hop, it’s the laid-back sound of Fela Kuti or a cappella strains of
Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Depending what song comes next at the
various barber’s, your hairdresser will either sing or break into dance.
Pray that it’s the former if the clippers are hovering next to your ear.
There’s a pattern to a typical day in Matongé. While the rest of
Brussels is gathering over 8am boardroom meetings and contemplating
what jogging route they’ll take on their lunch break, this area is hitting
snooze for another hour. Since it comes to life a little later than its
neighbours, breakfast isn’t really an option. Lunch is though, and it’s
long and lazy. Porte l’Amour is home to 26-year-old Safia Beidou’s
restaurant. She’s from Niger and sells typical African fast food. Basically,
that’s fried chicken, fried fish, fried plantain or fried cow’s stomach. You
can take your pick from either “tigadigue” (peanut) or “piment” (spicy)
sauce. The time from ordering to eating is short, as the food only needs
to be reheated. However, getting through the many family members and
friends congregating at the counter takes a little longer. If you get sucked
into a conversation about food, you can kiss your quiet lunch goodbye.
Outside on the streets, there’s a buzz as the hairdressers get to work.
You get your “do” in the early afternoon, then come back in the evening
to show it off. When we visit, all the boys are getting waves, while the
girls are getting extensions and braids.
THEY WILL COOK YOU THE FINEST
MEAL YOU’VE PUT PAST YOUR LIPS BUT
YOU’LL NEVER GET THEIR SECRETS

Getting a wave is like a sophisticated
interrogation technique. We watch as
hairdresser Alex Madesu gives us a demo
at his salon. You paint your hair in a white
relaxant cream and sit there until your head
burns hotter than a stove. Then, once the pain
is getting unbearable, you grit your teeth for
another 10 minutes, before washing it out with
a giant sigh of relief. A wave kills your hair into
a style. You’re left with small ridges that look
like map contours – and that’s how it stays.
The hair won’t grow back unless you shave it
off. A look like this can last for ages so, as Alex
explains, if the barbers don’t introduce another
hairdo or branch out into hot-towel shaves, it’ll
put them all out of business.
Ndayizeme “Jimmy” Jumaine, 40, has
a better business strategy for his shop. His
barbers are volunteers, with the profits going
back to charitable projects in Africa. The
only haircut Jimmy does is called a “marine”:
skintight on the back and sides with just a little
patch of glory remaining on top.
“If you want a good marine, you have to get
it cut every week,” says Jimmy, smiling like a
man who could sell rainwater to the Irish.
Girls’ braids last a bit longer than a week
but can take hours to do. It becomes a bit of a
group activity, with anyone who’s hanging out in
the salon getting involved. They tag in and out
while someone runs off to fetch more plantain.
Threading braids burns carbs like nothing else.
“When is Ryanair going to start flying
to the Congo?” asks one of the girls at the
CeleStine salon. “Tell your boss. Tell him to fly
to the Congo. He’ll make good business,” says
another. They all agree Ryanair could make
a packet flying Sub-Saharan routes, and we
promise to do our best to pass on the tip.
Is Matongé the most exciting
neighbourhood in Brussels? Just ask the
European Parliament bureaucrats who turn up
for dinner after a long day climbing through red
tape and culpability. Around here, you can eat
like kids and laugh from your belly. Whether
you’re African or not, it’s a place you can dip
into, get your fingers sticky and forget about
the legislature and the restrictions of the city
around you. And assuming you don’t wind up
in Alex’s barbershop getting your hair burnt
into the latest fashion, a groggy head will be
your only regret come morning.

TO-MA-TOES
It's a backpackers' dream — throwing around
a bunch of squishy tomatoes in a Spanish
village. But what is La Tomatina like for
grown-ups? Abigail King gets suited up
65 RYANAIRMAGAZINE
I’m halfway through laughing at my friend when a flying
object smacks me in the mouth. Seeing as I’m standing
in the middle of the world’s largest tomato fight, I might
have expected this to happen. But it’s not a tomato, it’s a
slimy and substantial lump of industrial grease. And it’s
absolutely disgusting.
Every year, more than 40,000 visitors descend on the
tiny town of Buñol, near Valencia, Spain, for La Tomatina.
What began in the 1940s as an impromptu scuffle during
a carnival procession has grown into an international
circus – involving all-night parties, more than 120,000kg of
tomatoes and, as I’m finding out, buckets of white, whipped
grease. At my age, I should know better, but it’s too late for
that now. I’ve thrown myself headlong into La Tomatina,
albeit in a practical, 30-something kind of way.
We assemble before dawn on a deserted train platform,
dressed in white, with zip-tight pockets and a pair of goggles each.
“Good job we got here so early,” says Nick, a wry Essex
boy with a pint in one hand and a Valencian girl in the other.
“This wouldn’t have happened 10 years ago,” mutters
Alan, an Irishman in our group, as he surveys the town
square. He has a point. Now that we’re older, we’ve
researched this – looked online and checked what to bring,
where we should go and what time we need to get there.
We’re even wearing sensible shoes.
The result? We’re loitering in Plaza de Pueblo in the
empty, grey-morning light. The high-walled square is the
size of a basketball court and has all the atmosphere of a
laundry basket. There’s little sign of the all-night party.
Laurene, a French girl, shrugs. “So where is everyone?”
By 11am we have our answer. Now the square heaves
like a mosh pit beneath the heat of the angry sun. A no-
nonsense local ties a leg of ham to one end of a telegraph
pole, smears the wood in an inch-thick layer of grease
and hoists the contraption up until the jamón tickles the
palm fronds near the third-floor windows.
The aim of the game is to shimmy up the greasy pole to
claim the ham in the name of honour, courage, tomatoes,

Seeing red
Wearing goggles will
protect your eyes, but won't
stop you being made into
human tomato soup
or something like that – and it’s a great crowd-
pleaser. At first, the young, the fit, the toned
and the brave scramble up, grab handfuls of
grease and fling them into the air to make it
easier for the next man. My dollop, that curious
blend of Fairy Liquid and burnt bacon rind,
sticks to my eyelids and melts in my hair, but
the crowd is so dense I can’t wipe it away.
“What a douchebag!” yells a Californian
beside me, all of 20 years old in denim
hotpants and a Hollywood smile. I feel old.
The international coalition of backpackers
have united against a common enemy, the
tomato, and for a common cause, the ham. Not
for the first time, I wonder what I’m doing here.
On the narrow balconies overhead, deft
fingers secure the plastic sheets that cover the
shop fronts. A few houses away, lenses glint
in the sunlight as the press stand ready. The
temperature rises and my tongue feels thick,
soapy and dry. Everyone is waiting.
Something else hits me in the face. It’s water,
from a washing-up bowl on the rooftop. Splat.
A saucepan empties out, followed by a bucket
and then another loaded washing-up bowl. After
hours in the heat, the water is welcome – oh, so
welcome. A low-throated rumbling filters through
the crowd, and over the hum of the engines a
chant becomes clear. “Tomate! Tomate! Tomate!”
Call me Sherlock, but I think I know what’s
coming. A lorry crawls to the edge of the
square, and I feel a rising edge of panic. The
wing mirrors almost graze the plastic sheeting
yet we’re already crammed in tight. The lorry
enters Plaza de Pueblo, pressing us against
the wall. It’s a mathematical situation that
doesn’t make sense. The buildings shudder, the
firecracker launches, the fight begins.
I’m not sure what I had expected; perhaps
heaps of round tomatoes like coloured balls in
a children’s playground, or those old-fashioned
scenes of women lifting up their petticoats
and squelching grapes beneath their feet. The
reality is more bizarre – and brutal.
Staff hurl tomatoes at the defenceless
crowd, a human sacrifice for the vengeful
gods of the rotten tomato. The goggles were
pointless, that’s the first thing to learn.
RYA_42_64_Tomatina_ED_JM.indd 67 28/07/2010 13:01

With or without them, you can’t see a thing. Again and again, scarlet
missiles thump onto our skulls and, packed this tight, we’re powerless to
respond. What are we doing here?
The lorry leaves and suddenly I understand the term “breathing space”.
I grab the tomatoey remnants from my shoulders and get ready to join in,
but there’s no time. A second lorry rumbles through, followed by a third,
then a fourth and, well, by then I’ve lost count. When the last lorry rolls
away, leading a Pied Piper procession of shoeless backpackers, we find
ourselves immersed in an alfresco Napoletana sauce. Flip-flops float on
the surface, and a sticky mesh of tomato seeds covers my face.
Now our battle begins. It’s just ridiculously enjoyable to scoop up
macerated fruit and pelt it at your friends. Better still is diving into the
pools on the floor and rolling around in homemade tomato soup. Tomato
juice is said to be an antioxidant cleanser, but who cares? None of us
look pretty – yet we’re all having fun. When the final firecracker sounds
I emerge, bedraggled, my hair matted with furled tomato skins, my eyes
blurry with red juice. To my surprise, I’m in demand. “Please, just one hug
to show we came,” says a teenage girl in a spotless T-shirt, envying my
tomato-drenched state. “We couldn’t get anywhere near the fight.”
As we stride towards the hosepipes, full of childish glee, more and
more people stop and stare. “How did you get so much tomato?” asks a
German backpacker. “Right place, right time,” I reply, smiling to myself.
You see, we 30-somethings have secret weapons when it comes to
fighting tomatoes: tenacity, luck, alarm clocks and sensible shoes.

71 RYANAIRMAGAZINE
It’s a sunny Saturday afternoon
and I’m standing on Rue Legouvé
in the trendy Canal Saint-Martin
neighbourhood of Paris, waving my
hands around and attempting to
speed step in time to hard electronic
beats coming out of a boombox. God
knows what I look like, but people are
stopping to gaze and someone even
throws some loose change into a hat.
Paris has a long tradition of street
dance, ever since breakdancing and
body-popping crossed the Atlantic
and blew up in the city’s suburbs
in the 1980s. Today, in the name of
journalism, I’m attempting to learn
the latest dance – one born right here
in Paris – and it’s known as Tecktonik.
With me are two hip-looking
kids widely acknowledged as the
star dancers of the genre – a cross
between electro, hip-hop and
breakdance, with a bit of 1980s
voguing and 1990s glow-stick hand
waving thrown in. Treaxy, 20, and
Nemo, 22, have cajoled me and
passer-by Mèlody – a lithe 18-year-old
with angular features and big hair –
into trying a taster session. There’s a
lot of pouting and popping going on.
“Do you think she knows what
Tecktonik is?” I ask Patrick Gravity
(not his real surname), who represents
the dancers and organises numerous
Tecktonik club nights alongside the
movement’s acknowledged founders
Cyril Blanc and Alexandre Barouzdin.
“Of course,” he says, looking at
me as if I’ve just arrived from outer
space. “Everyone in France knows
about Tecktonik.” What started in a
smattering of Parisian underground
clubs a decade ago slowly spread via
YouTube videos of teens dancing in
bedrooms across the world and is
now a global phenomenon.
The story started back in 2000 at
Le Metropolis nightclub in Rungis, a
RYA_42_70_Paris Techtonic_ED_JM.indd 71 28/07/2010 13:07
nights organised by Patrick Gravity and the whole Tecktonik collective.
“It’s amazing in these countries because everyone knows exactly how
to dance it,” he says. A little bit of Paris has reached the world.
So, how does one actually dance Tecktonik? At 30, I’m a good few
years above the average dancer’s age bracket but, hey, I can still move.
“There are basic moves, but you can adapt them to your personal
style,” says Nemo. “It’s all about expressing yourself. If you’re feeling
angry you dance hard, if you’re happy dance soft.” The music begins
and I tap my foot in a self-conscious bid to limber up. Tecktonik is
apparently 80% arms, 20% legs – so, with this in mind, I raise my
arms aloft. Nemo’s limbs are stylish and snake-like, while I wave my
hands like a chimp conducting an orchestra. Everyone smiles politely.
Mèlody is far more suited to this kind of thing, and fares a little
better. I ask for her thoughts on the craze. “It can look impressive
when danced by the professionals and it’s kind of fun, but I think
their tight pants are a little ridiculous,” she says. “I’ve never danced
Tecktonik before and I don’t really like electronic music, either.”
So perhaps it hasn’t quite achieved world domination just yet. Still,

Treaxy has recently abandoned his in favour
of a shorter style. Treaxy is Tecktonik’s
poster boy. He has danced on CNN, taught
the routines in fitness centres across France,
and earned a starring role in a music video for
French electro band Yelle. The clip for their
track A Cause des Garçons remixed by TEPR
has had over 20 million views on YouTube.
“I’ve been hip-hop dancing since I was
eight years old, and Tecktonik was a natural
progression,” he says. “For me, it represents
liberty – it’s an energy and a way of thinking.
It’s my mission to take Tecktonik to the world.”
It seems that ambition is paying off too, as
cool kids from Kazakhstan, Russia, Mexico,
Morocco, Ivory Coast and Tunisia are all
becoming au fait with Tecktonik. Treaxy is
presently touring these nations with big club
southern suburb of Paris. Cyril and Alexandre,
both friends, were tired of the usual clubbing
scene, so they started organising nights called
Tecktonik Killer, where thousands of clubbers
would step to the heavy sounds of Belgian
techno and “hardstyle” (a mix of hard trance,
hardcore and rave). More and more dancers
started choreographing routines and dressing
in the same style, and Tecktonik was born.
The name was inspired by tectonic plates,
signifying the meeting and clashing of cultures.
It struck a chord with teenagers who loved
the freedom it gave them and the fashion
style it has become associated with. Millions
started watching the online video posts of
kids performing in the streets around the
Eiffel Tower and Pompidou Centre.
“I love the Tecktonik look,” says Nemo.
“It’s all about tight-fitting jackets, fluorescent
colours and slim jeans. It’s quite 1980s.”
The mullet is the hairstyle of choice for the
Tecktonik dancer (male and female), although

when founders Cyril and Alexandre realised they were onto something
big they registered the Tecktonic trademark, and have made it big
business. They produce CD compilations and a clothing line, including

movements look extra special. Check out Atelier Self Creation for
official Tecktonik gear (83 Rue des Archives, tel: +33 (0)14 277 3586).
Towards the end of the afternoon, as I am doing an impression of
a raving octopus in a day-glo headband, an elderly man shuffles along
Rue Legouvé. He stops in front of us and watches for a while, looking
baffled, then tuts and slowly carries on. There may be Facebook fan
groups and the world may now know about Tecktonik, but I’m willing
to bet my skinny jeans he doesn’t have a clue what it is.

BEGINNERS’
GUIDE TO
TECKTONIK
If you’re the right side
of 25, possess hair
that’s straight out of a
Toni & Guy advert and
feel comfortable in
fluorescent clothing –
and, more importantly,
don’t resemble a
steward at a pop concert
– then take yourself off
to the Eiffel Tower or one
of the Tecktonik clubs
to strut your sexy stuff.
But get some practice in
first, by learning a few of
these moves.
THE POINT
Pretend that you’ve
spotted something
fascinating in the sky,
then look up and point
your finger.
THE ARM ROLL

There’s a secret to making the
perfect cup of coffee, as Alexander
James finds out as he trains to be a
barista at the Illy school in Trieste.
Photography by Alexander Short
The last time I sipped the perfect cup of coffee was in the least
salubrious of places – a fast-food diner in Pisa. It was made by a
grunting, wispy-haired gent, with no hype, no ceremony and no
stamping of loyalty cards. The result was a thick gulp of liquid-velvet
richness that left a touch of sweetness lingering on the tongue.
I have been attempting to recreate that cup ever since, which is
why I signed up to a course promising to transform coffee virgins
into fully fledged baristas – taking me to the Università del Caffè, run
by Italian gourmet coffee brand Illy in Trieste. What would happen I
wondered? Would I be able to make the perfect cup of espresso, and
free myself from freeze-dried instant forever?
When it comes to coffee, Rome and Vienna are renowned, but Trieste
is truly Italy’s hidden coffee gem. Stuck at the crossroads of Latin,
Germanic and Slavic Europe, Trieste is identity crisis brought to life in
bricks, mortar and very attractively laid out public spaces. It was Austrian
until 1918, independent for a while after World War II – when the Iron
Curtain descended unceremoniously right through its suburbs – before
becoming Italian, but only in 1954. While Venice and Florence have their
unique cultural pull, Milan is the cosmopolitan heart of fashion and Rome
has la dolce vita, Trieste is the Java-hub of Europe, with it’s this melting
pot of second- and third-generation Austrians, Czechs, Croatians and
Slovenians that harbours a passion for coffee like no other.
In the average Triestine coffee emporium you will find a selection
of 50 ways in which a coffee can be served. There’s a poster showing
all of them at Caffè degli Specchi on Piazza Unità d’Italia. To the
untrained eye they look like different servings of espresso with

varying degrees of milk, but they are in fact
far more complex. Take the “Nero Gocciato in
Bicchiere”, a shot glass of coffee, crowned by
a micro-foam drop of milk, heated to such a
temperature that it adds a smooth round taste
to the intensity of the bean. Heat the milk
too much, however, and the result is a burnt
flavour that smothers the coffee flavour. It’s a
delicate balance. The people of Trieste have
their own specific tastes of coffees and times
to drink them. When I ordered a cappuccino
after 11am the barista stared at me like I’d just
insulted his mother.
Luckily Illy’s Università del Caffè, where
wannabe baristas are trained, is here to help
me survive. Entering the coffee company’s
headquarters, I stroll past espresso bars and
through sleek corridors to find a lecture
theatre adorned with super-powered coffee
machines. Glass-encased desks make up
the rows, with artist-designed espresso cups
gleaming inside.
I find out from wall displays that coffee first
came to Europe through nearby Venice in the
17th century, but the roasting houses started
in Trieste at the same time to support the new
trade. The city’s position as the main trading
port of the Austro-Hungarian Empire helped
to establish it as an epicentre for perfecting the
art of the bean.
Morena Faina, head of education at Illy,
tells me just how far this art goes. “There
are 50 factors that can affect the taste of the
coffee. Even the types of rain and sun a coffee
bean is exposed to influences taste,” he says.
“Within each factor there are also causes
for concern. Even the way you open a bean
before it is pulped needs to be done with care,
without it you can cause a chemical reaction
that damages the flavour. The job of the

barista is to respect the love that has gone into
the bean, and to bring out the flavours.”
The barista works to a set of basic rules, and
to disobey just one of them could lead to his
handiwork being spat out in disdain. “The ideal
taste of a coffee should be a perfect balance
between bitterness, sweetness and acidity, and
that is where the barista comes in,” Morena says,
before passing me over to one of Illy’s head
baristas, Michele Pauletic, to show me the basics.
The water filtering through the machine
should be no more than 90°C, and filtered
through the coffee drip for precisely 31
seconds. Any more creates too much pressure.
Lastly, there’s the milk, which must be full
fat. Anything else will not give you the same
texture or finish.
“A cappuccino is like a cocktail, and the
ingredients need to be right. That includes
the milk,” Michele says. “It needs to have a
temperature between 37°C and 65°C, and be
frothed until the consistency starts to shine.”
To create latte art he shows me how to pour
the frothy milk into a black espresso, tilting the
milk jug backwards and forwards, as the froth
starts to rise. You pour the milk down with a
wriggling action to create a ripple-effect leaf.
I try quite a few times, managing to spill half
the milk on the first attempt, before getting one
almost right. Michele has been doing this for
15 years. No wonder he makes it look easy.
So next, with my new education to hand, I
hit Trieste’s cafés to check out how the local
baristas do it for real. Wandering around this
calm and beautiful town by the sea, overlooked
by rolling hills, with its uplifting architecture,
two castles and centuries-old churches you’ve
no choice but to unwind and focus on what’s
important. For literary titans and sometime
Trieste natives, James Joyce and Jules Verne,
coffee drinking was an essential pastime. Joyce,
who is remembered by three different statues in
the city, would sip espresso at the Caffè Stella
Polare on Via Dante (tel: +39 040 632742).
Needless to say the barista here pours my latte
expertly, getting that ripple leaf just right.
Coffee is more than a drink in Trieste; it’s a
culture. It’s made by the barista here with the
same sense of intuition a sailor has sensing
the wind. I haven’t been here long enough for
coffee making to become second nature yet,
but I do know it’s as much about respect as it
is technicality. I’ll raise a thimble-sized glass to
wispy-haired gents across Italy for that.

BRAND FOCUS
THE STORY OF ILLY’S SUCCESS,
BY WWW.FORTUNESTREET.COM
Trieste has inspired what is arguably the world’s
best coffee brand: a brand that was born of one
World War and sustained through the next; a
brand that brought the iconic red square on a
silver tin to cafés and restaurants around the
world; a brand so dedicated to creating the best
blend possible that it earned its founder’s son
the nickname “missionary of the espresso”.
Like the best brands, the little red square
has become a hallmark of quality coffee. The
ubiquitous silver tins are sold in 140 countries
around the world, serving all five continents
and stocked at more than 50,000 bars. Every
day, more than 6 million cups of coffee are
made with the Illy blend worldwide.
The global economic crisis has changed
the relationship we have with the brands we
consume. Nowadays, big is not always best
and in some ways “global” has come to mean
rootless, anonymous, artificial and exploitative.
What we’re looking for now is authenticity, for
something from closer to home, for something
that tells a story that isn’t about exploitation or
greed but that is about dedication, pride and
commitment instead.
We want to buy into brands that care about
how and where they are produced, and which
care about the quality they give to the people
who buy them – because that way we can care
about them too. We want things that come from
small, out-of-the-way places, from experts who
have literally dedicated their life to making their
products the best they can be. All this is fulfilled
by the Illy brand, and it’s why we love it.
The coffee’s unique blend and brewing
process is a result of the dedication and
time spent researching and testing in the Illy
family’s two research centres, four laboratories
and coffee university. And the quality control
system for every batch is second to none. Each
bean has to pass 125 checks before being
packaged – a far cry from your average coffee
chain school of coffee making.
Undeniably, Illy is a global brand, but the
continued commitment of the Illy family comes
across wherever in the world you are, and the
brand feels like something that all of us can
own. Its name isn’t overtly Italian, so anyone can
pronounce it – and the coffee is totally delicious
and guarantees taste. The brand is a testament
to the unique culture of Trieste and the passion
of the close-knit Illy family.

Italy enjoys a reputation as the gastronomical paradise
of Europe. So to have a reputation as the region with the
best food within Italy is an honour indeed. There is such
a region, and it is called Puglia. Its sunny climate creates
the perfect conditions for cultivating the 50 million olive
trees that produce over 80% of Italy’s olive oil; there are
legendary tomatoes and an abundance of the best fruit
and vegetables you will ever taste, and with the Adriatic
Sea lapping its shores, plentiful fresh seafood lands on
plates from Bari to Brindisi and beyond every day.
No stomach is large enough to taste it all, so when
eating out there are several things to remember and
certain dishes to look out for. Nearly all restaurants
serve antipasti, which are often not listed on the menu.
Just order them anyway, and you will be brought a huge
array of small, starter-sized dishes that will include
cheeses, vegetarian delicacies, cured meats and seafood
specialities that differ from town to town.
Don’t overlook the famous orecchiette (meaning “little
ears”), a delicious, heavy pasta that is the signature shape
of the area. Or try the mouth-watering burrata cheese, a
mozzarella so fresh and delicate that it has to be eaten on
the day it is made. For a taste of both, there’s nowhere
better than the Trattoria Antichi Sapori,

Of course, after loosening your belt, there’s

have their fair share of excellent beds, such as

or the deceptively western Hotel Orientale

between a leisure and business hotel.

located about an hour’s drive north from Bari
in Montegrosso d’Andria and one of the best
restaurants in Puglia. Reserving ahead is very
much advised!
With so many kilometres of coastline,
Puglia is not lacking in fantastic seafood, so
head southwards from Montegrosso d’Andria
and sea creatures will practically start jumping
onto your plate for you. In Bari, Ristorante Il
Sale (meaning “the salt”) excels in seafood,
especially shrimp and monkfish, while Hostaria
Al Gambero, closer to the harbour, is so
popular that if you live in Bari and haven’t been
here, you don’t really live in Bari.
Southwards along the Adriatic, 40km from
Bari, is the swooningly gorgeous town of
Polignano a Mare. To enjoy possibly one of
the most romantic settings Europe has to offer,
Grotta Palazzese is your port of call. Or rather,
cave of call, since this hotel and restaurant is
hewn into the limestone rocks overlooking the
sea. With the sea breathing so close, it’s not
surprising that it provides much of what’s on the
menu, including delicious lobster dishes.
On the other side of Polignano a Mare is
Brindisi, a large city by Puglian standards, but
by no means a giant. However, head to Trattoria
Pantagruele just couple of blocks from the
waterfront, and you can experience two sorts of
giant. On the one hand it is named after one of

it offers a truly different Italian holiday

exclusive historical treasures, the trulli. These
conical-roofed dwellings were built around the
same time as the masserie, and even then the
building of the trulli from dry stone instead of
mortar and cement was a wonderfully crafty
Puglian answer to avoid having to pay tax on
the materials.
In today’s crazy-paced world, it is
remarkable to still encounter somewhere that
refuses to compromise its core principles.
While a growing tourist industry will dictate
the shape of the visitors, one thing will forever
remain fixed, as long as there is Mediterranean
blood pumping through their veins: the people
of the Puglia region will continue to do things
their own way – and don’t you even think
about trying to stop them.
gorgeous food, committed visitors would
do well to see how they apply that to
accommodation too.
Far from the north’s industrial triangle
– Milan, Turin and Genoa – the Pugliese
have long practised the art of using the
raw materials available. During the 16th
and 17th centuries it was common practice
for landowners to construct large fortified
farmhouses, or masserie, that would house both
workers and harvested crops. Continuing the
spirit of independent enterprise, more and
more of these masserie in the small town of
Fasano, equidistant between Bari and Brindisi,
are being bought up and converted into luxury
hotels, which augment themselves with the
best of Puglian cuisine.
In several masserie such as Borgo San
Marco the true live-off-the-land mentality of
the south goes even further offering menus
with “zero food miles”. Taking advantage of
the vast olive groves, both olives and olive
oil are not only sourced locally, but proudly
produced on the farm. The nearby Masseria
Torre Coccaro simply oozes historical charm,

baked bread and view over the Mediterranean,

Many dream of owning a luxury home by the sea, and with the
Residencial 37 Soles apartments that dream could soon be a reality
W
ith its superb climate, beautiful
beaches, exceptional natural
environment and excellent location
in the heart of Spain’s Valencian coast,
Cullera is the perfect place to buy a home.
If you’re after a beachfront apartment, then
take a look at the Residencial 37 Soles building,
which has fantastic views of Cullera bay. These
spectacular apartments are constructed using
the highest quality steel, glass, aluminium and
wood, to the very latest designs. A minimalist
approach has been taken with the aim of
creating a luxurious and comfortable space.
All apartments are three-bedroom –
doubles with no singles or bunk beds. The
huge picture windows look out onto the sea
so you can even just lie in bed and soak up
the scenery. A roomy lounge, measuring
more than 35m², opens onto a spacious
terrace of up to 120m² and overlooks the
Mediterranean Sea. The terrace contains a
swimming pool, hot tub and barbecue, so
you can swim, enjoy the sun and gaze at
the views without ever leaving the flat. The
designer kitchen is practical and fitted with
high-quality electrical appliances. There are
garages, which can hold two or three vehicles
per apartment. And there’s a sizable ground
floor that’s designed to accommodate a
home-cinema system with space for fitness
equipment and a cellar.
With a starting price of €499,000,
Residencial 37 Soles apartments have been
built to take advantage of Cullera’s amazing
seascape and climate, which has 300 days of
sun a year with temperatures ranging from
18-29°C. The sheltered bay provides excellent
conditions for nautical sports and swimming
and the apartments are a two-minute walk
from the sandy Los Olivos beach.
And while Cullera has everything you’ll
need to make your stay enjoyable, Valencia,
the region’s capital, is only a 20-minute drive
away. There you can explore its vast historical
and cultural heritage or visit the shops, bars
and restaurants.

specializes in infertility treatments, and it is one of the leading experts in the field in Europe.

one of the reasons being that approximately 80 % of the problems associated with infertility
are solved at the clinic.
Effective treatment with donor gametes!

asaltos.com, the Spanish company
specializing in gentlemen’s
footwear designed to increase the
wearer’s stature, has joined forces
with the online sales portal, Amazon, in order
to increase its activity in Europe. The company,
founded in Seville 15 years ago, hopes to increase
its business on the continent by a factor of five
within two years. The agreement is already
underway in the United Kingdom and Germany,
and will be extended to other countries over the
next few months.
Masaltos.com is the first Spanish company
of its kind to meet all of the requirements set
by the world’s leading e-business site. These are
guarantees related to the viability of the company
wishing to sell on Amazon, as well as the quality,
authenticity, uniqueness and variety of its
products, their attractiveness to consumers, etc.
The company chose Amazon as a sales channel
because of “its leadership and reliability”,
according to Andres Ferreras, general manager
and founder of www.masaltos.com. “Amazon
gives greater presence to those companies that
receive a good rating from customers, who
use a meter to score the product’s quality and
availability, ability to meet expectations, reliable
delivery and simple handling of any returns,
among other things. Although it would probably
be simpler to sell through other portals, we feel
very comfortable with Amazon.”
The www.masaltos.com shoes allow men
to “grow” by up to 7 centimeters thanks to a
wedge-shaped insole hidden inside. Furthermore,
this footwear is manufactured using a special last
meaning the show has space for the insole while
also holding the wearer’s foot snugly, facilitating
movement and contributing to good circulation.
Experienced chiropodists and orthopedic
surgeons participate in their design.
The Seville firm has carried out the
administrative process in record time, and it
now offers on this website around 100 different
models of shoe, starting at 90 Euros.
Great Britain and, particularly, Germany are
countries with a growing demand for this kind
of shoe. In fact, www.masaltos.com already
has more than 15,000 customers there. Its
incorporation into the Amazon sales channel
will allow it to enlarge its market quickly and at
a reasonable cost. The other great resource that
Amazon’s business model offers is anonymous
purchasing with home delivery, cornerstones of
the Sevillian company’s success.

DESTINATION MALTA
F
rom the bastions of Mdina you can see for miles, surveying a land
that has been fought over for centuries by Greeks, Romans, Turks and
the French. Culture abounds on these beautiful islands, with plenty of
palaces and museums to explore too.
But if your idea of a holiday is stretching out on the beach, with the waves
lapping onto the shore, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Head to spots like Golden Bay
Beach, whose clear-blue waters are perfect for families and sun-worshippers alike.
All of which should give you an appetite for the hedonistic nightlife of
Paceville, a local festa or just some of the island’s impressive cuisine. When you
want it all, Malta is just a short flight away!
Sandy beaches, historic towns and a
vibrant culture – a holiday in Malta has it all

DESTINATION MALTA
H
ave you ever dreamed of owning your own slice of history? When
the Knights of St John built their strongholds on this picturesque
archipelago off the coast of Sicily, they wanted this sun-drenched
spot all to themselves.
A jewel in the Mediterranean, Malta is filled with historic towns, long, sandy
beaches and locals who enjoy a laid-back way of life. The capital, Valletta, is an
eclectic mix of old and new. Grand buildings line the historic waterfront while
further up the coast, resorts like St Julian’s offer the perfect escape, with fishing
boats bobbing in the harbour.
Real estate opportunities abound, from beach-side developments to penthouse
apartments – all offering the chance to share in the magic of these islands. The
companies on these pages will help you to make your property dreams come true
in beautiful Malta.
Fought over for centuries, this
Mediterranean gem offers sunshine, sandy
beaches and a superb laid-back lifestyle

Think about how you learnt your native language as a child. The world was
your classroom, but there were no lessons. You were an active participant in
the process of learning, but it all seemed like fun and games. Like child’s play.
That’s the secret to Rosetta Stone
®
. We unlock your brain’s natural ability
to learn a language. You’ll learn through engaging, interactive activities that
encourage you to think in the new language. And just like a child, you won’t
memorise or translate. You’ll have fun as you progress, and you’ll find it easy
to achieve your language learning goals.
Learning a language?
Consider it child’s play.

Edinburgh
EAT: ATRIUM
The elegant Scandinavian design and
intimate lighting in this classic Edinburgh
restaurant are enough to earn the
admiration of most, but head chef Neil
Forbes’ daily-changing menu marks it out
as possibly the best eatery in the city.

perfect place to congregate with friends
over a few beers (don’t miss the in-house
Ghillie Ale). Friday nights feature The
Burly Céilidh Club: a three-course set
dinner with live traditional Scottish music,
followed by a more contemporary DJ
working the decks until 3am.

7713 8777, WWW.KITCHIN-N1.COM
DRINK: LONSDALE
Fresh from a re-fit, The Lonsdale is now

EAT: THE PRINT ROOM
Since the former printing floor of the local
Daily Echo newspaper was transformed
into a restaurant, the smell of ink has been

In the North of Spain
I
f there is one thing that defines the
geography and appearance of Cantabria it
is the variety of landscapes. This variety is
due to the concentration of high mountains,
deep valleys and a sheer coastline in an area of
little more than 5,000 km
2
.
So stunning is the landscape of this region
that despite occupying only a small area in
central northern Spain, it gives its name to two
geographical features that define the Iberian
Peninsula on this flank: the Cordillera Cantábrica
(mountain rauge) and the Cantabrian Sea.
It is a harsh, yet beautiful land, worked by
the hand of man for hundreds of thousands of
years; however still being a valuable habitat for
local vegetation and wildlife. It is a land of mist
and water, in which the brilliant light, filtered by
infinite clouds, paints an incredible concert of
green on the rocks and cliffs.
Natural Parks
The Net of Natural Protected Spaces from
Cantabria is integrated by 37 spaces. Of them, one is
National Park (Picos de Europa) and six are Natural
Parks (Liencres’s dunes, Saja-Besaya, Oyambre,
The Peña Cabarga Massif, The Asón Heights and
Santoña’s Marshes, Victoria and Joyel).
The curious, sensitive and knowledgeable
traveller will find in Cantabria an infinite
number of alternatives with which to turn the
exploration of this land into an unforgettable
personal experience.
Active tourism
One of the main Jacobean routes, the
Northern Camino of Santiago along the Coast,
crosses Cantabria from east to west. Apart from
this, you can go for walks in the region, following
routes marked with internationally recognised
indications or the ‘Green Routes’ and discover
an ideal destination to practise adventure
sports such as canoeing, rafting, paragliding,
horse riding, water skiing or bungee-jumping.
Beaches
Up to 90 beaches of fine and white sand
along the 220 kilometres coastline of Cantabria
are one of the main tourist attractions in the
Spanish region. Larges, small, urban or rural;
peaceful and protected or open to the bay of
Biscay, most of these beaches are located
near towns that provide a wideranging offer of
accomodation and other infrastructures.

RYANAIR: EUROPE’S GREENEST
AND CLEANEST AIRLINE
Aviation accounts for just 2% of CO2
emissions, far less than power generation
(26%) or road transport (18%)
Passengers who choose Ryanair are doing
their bit by flying with Europe’s greenest
and cleanest airline. Since 1998 Ryanair has
invested over $10bn in new aircraft and now
operates the youngest most fuel efficient
fleet of any major airline in Europe, a fact
recently confirmed by the Dutch Consumer
Organisation in its recent study of 33
European airlines.
As a result of this investment and
technological advances in aircraft design,
Ryanair has reduced its fuel burn and CO2
emissions per passenger kilometre by 52%
since 1998. In short, aviation accounts for just
2% of CO2 emissions and within this sector,
passengers can do no better than choosing
Ryanair, the greenest, cleanest and most
environmentally efficient airline.
