Barcelona has long

WE COULD BE HEROES
Fancy taking part in a vintage
cycling race through the hills of
Chianti, covering 205km, where
your bike must have been made
before 1987? L’Eroica (“The
Heroic”) is Italy’s most gruelling
annual amateur bike race, and our
writer should know because he’s
survived to tell his tale!

BORDERING ON BIZARRE
Is it physically possible to be in two
countries at the same time? Well,
sort of: the towns of Baarle-Hertog
and Baarle-Nassau make up one
of Europe’s strangest places to live,
being part Belgian, part Dutch.

that’s guaranteed.
Ryanair is also Europe’s best performing
customer service provider with the continent’s
best punctuality, least lost bags, fewest flight
cancelations and the guarantee of no fuel
surcharges ever (see page 131 for further details).
This summer has been yet another record-
breaking season for Ryanair. In July we broke
two records when we carried more than 7
million passengers in a single month for the first
time and also we carried more than 70 million
passengers over the past 12 months.
This month we celebrate the opening of
Ryanair’s 44th base in Barcelona El Prat which
will bring new routes, new aircraft and new jobs
to the Barcelona region and of course even more
low fares and choice to consumers and visitors
at this great destination.
Finally, I hope you enjoy your flight with us
today, and I invite you to sit back, relax and allow
our wonderful crew to take great care of you. I
look forward to welcoming you and your family
onboard many more low-fare Ryanair flights in
the coming months.
Thank you for choosing to fly with Ryanair, the
World’s favourite airline.

GOLDEN STILT COMPETITION
NAMUR, BELGIUM
When you live in a country
known for its lowlands,
walking on stilts is not
something that’s just left to
circus clowns and street
performers. And when
you’ve mastered that skill, it
seems only natural for you
to want to prove your mettle
in a competition. This
vertical dual dates back to
1411, and sees opponents
dressed in bright costumes
battling gladiator-style to
knock each other off their
stilts. The winner is awarded
the Golden Stilt and
must defend the title the
following year. The festival
is famous throughout the
Wallonia region, and plenty
of spectators dress up in
medieval costume, adding
to the historic atmosphere.

LA MERCÈ
BARCELONA, SPAIN
The festival of La Mercè celebrates the
“Virgin of Mercy”, so it’s fitting that those
who attend are left to beg before a host
of fire-breathing dragons and creepy
devils. The streets are also packed with
DJs spinning tracks, dancers kicking
legs, and orchestras strumming strings.
And it wouldn’t be a Spanish festival
if the “castellers” (men who are experts
in building human pyramids) didn’t
try to defy gravity and human reason.

LONDON DESIGN FESTIVAL
LONDON, UK
Easily the UK’s biggest celebration of
design, the London Design Festival
boasts more than 200 events and an
audience of 300,000 visitors. Designers
and design admirers alike can enjoy
major international exhibitions
and installations, seminars, product
launches and parties. Best of all, many
events are free. Visitors from previous
years will be delighted to hear the
100% Norway exhibit is returning for
2010. Nobody should miss Norwegian
designer Siren Wilhelmsen’s cuckoo
clock that actually knits, and Kristine
Bjaadal’s tablecloth that puts spills to
good use. You can find the Norway
exhibit at Earl’s Court stand G40 from
23–26 September. But, with inspiring
design at every turn, plan on spending
at least a full day at the festival.

COMMENT
The French electronic music maestro and laser lover talks travel

“HOLIDAYING IS AN UNUSUAL CONCEPT


for me. I consider a holiday as being able to
spend a section of your life doing things that
are totally different from what you are used
Jean Michel Jarre to. That is why the current world tour I am on
is so addictive. Yes, I’m working but I’m also
travelling all over the world and doing things
that I wouldn’t normally be doing, therefore
making every day different.
“I have always felt very lucky to be doing
something that I have a passion for, but
because of this it can be difficult to share my
time between holiday and work. I try to mix
both as much as I can.
“As well as the opportunity to entertain, I
like to see my touring schedule as a fantastic
opportunity to learn more about that particular
city or country, and to travel through it. I have
also found that when you are working abroad
the people around you are so fantastically
authentic. I think that by working in a place
you feel like you are becoming more of an
insider. For instance, when I was in Egypt
for three months in 1999 preparing for the
Millennium celebration concert at the base
of the pyramids of Giza, it was a wonderful
opportunity to work alongside Egyptian people

“I am constantly looking
to better each project that
I complete”

and truly understand their culture and learn


about the country.
“Sometimes I find it hard to get away on a
traditional holiday, as I am constantly looking to
better each project that I complete. I am always
thinking of ways to start up different projects,
and doing that is like a vacation from what I was
just doing. It’s like a mental holiday. But a real
physical holiday is always very welcome!
“I must admit, I am looking forward to
having a whole three weeks off soon. I’m going
to head down to the south of France where
I have a house near St Tropez, relax and try
to get myself back into proper shape. I don’t
know how possible that will be because I have
lots of friends coming to visit. One thing is for
sure, there will be plenty of good food, good
wine and good company.”

GET THE VIBE…


HAVE YOURSELF A ROYAL TIME!
London: there is no other town quite like
Britain’s bustling capital. If you like majestic
landmarks, look no further than Buckingham
Palace or, for a slice of rock ’n’ roll history,
make a pilgrimage to The Beatles’ iconic
Abbey Road Studios. Indeed, London is home
to countless famous faces – from Her Majesty
the Queen to rock king, Sting.
London calls upon visitors to explore the
roads the Romans built, marvel at the churches
Sir Christopher Wren rebuilt following the
Great Fire of London in 1666, and experience
first-hand the real-life portfolio of Sir Norman
Foster. From the “Gherkin” to London’s City Hall,
the work of this acclaimed British architect is
evident the moment you step off the plane. Well,
he did design Stansted Airport!
One way to admire London’s architecture
is by taking a cruise down the history-rich
River Thames. It’s the second-longest
river in the UK, and winds all the way from
Gloucestershire out to the North Sea in
Essex, dividing London into north and south.
It’s hard to imagine that just a few hundred
years ago the river was a busy working artery,
welcoming ships into the capital from as far
afield as China and the Canary Islands.
Today, a boat ride along the river will reveal
some of London’s most stunning sights – from

forbidden or damaging public property you’re
unlikely to run into any trouble.
If MACBA is the best place in Barcelona
to practise your ollies, kick-flips and slides,
then out by Barceloneta beach is undoubtedly
the best place to go for a cruise, especially
now that the Passeig Maritim stretches right
up to the sailing ship glass facade of the
W Barcelona hotel. This kilometres-long
coastal boulevard is a favourite hangout for
just about everyone – from holidaymakers
taking a seaside stroll, to rollerbladers, bikers,
and runners tuned into their iPods. Weaving
between them all – on traditional style or,
in increasing numbers, long boards – are
Barcelona’s omnipresent skaters. As Paulo
from Argentina explains, these stretched out
boards are much faster and easier to propel
than their shorter cousins, and are ideal for
getting around quickly.
“I prefer the long board to a skateboard
because I have to make a lot of trips,” he says.
With this you just push off two or three times
and then you relax. With a skateboard you’re
working all the time.”
Tricks aren’t so easy but, as Paulo
demonstrates, using the old sole of a
flip-flop that he finds on the floor (you are
supposed to wear special gloves), if you
gather some speed you can sit on the board
and use your hands to pull off assorted
dangerous manoeuvres.

As a journalist, you come to recognise the presence of real fame.


There’s that charisma famous people seem to have – and, of course, the
fact that everyone recognises them. My host in Marseille definitely falls
into this category. Everywhere we go, people turn and stare. “Is it him? It
looks like him,” they say. They don’t even mind when he stops to relieve
himself, right in the middle of the pavement.
“Saucisse feels people should keep their streets clean, so we set an
example,” remarks Serge Scotto, the escort for my unusual guide, as
he scoops the offending item into a bag. Saucisse looks on, obviously

I ask the publisher, Jimmy Gallier, if his star author has any special

It hasn’t always been cannelloni and croquettes for Saucisse, though.
He started out on the meanest streets of the city.
“He began life as an entrée,” says Serge, shaking his head sadly and
indicating the big scars on his canine companion’s flank. “The people
who fight dogs, they use puppies to bait the fighting dogs. So when he
was just a baby, they tossed him to a Pit Bull. He was half-eaten, almost
dead. It’s… not human.” Luckily, our hero was saved by the Société
Protectrice des Animaux (SPA), an animal protection charity, and it was
at their shelter in Marseille that he and Serge first met.
Looking at society through the eyes of his companion, Serge found a
new way to write, and columns by Saucisse began to appear in French
newspapers. Then came the novels, the election, and the Place du Chien
Saucisse’s entry on city maps. Last year, Saucisse appeared on the TV On the scent
