After a makeover lasting more than two decades, Barcelona has transformed itself into one of the most dynamic and stylish cities in the world. Summer is serious party time, but year-round the city sizzles - it’s always on the biting edge of architecture, food, fashion, style, music and good times. Barcelona is the perfect city for a weekend break. It has all the art and culture of a European city and the party atmosphere of an American one. Just make sure not to party too hard as you will miss all this city has to offer.

BARCELONA

Zaragoza

Day 1: Get to know the place

Day 2: Begin sitting, progress to cycling

Day 3: Cable cars to the locals

Day 4: Basking in the Barcelona sun

Day 5: Picasso, to the park to Plaça

Get to your accommodation, drop your bags, get out and go for a walk around the city. Barcelona has many memorable landmarks and buildings. This is thanks to world famous architect Antoni Gaudi. Born in 1852 to a coppersmith, the Catalan designer is responsible for so much of what you will remember about the city. He was first commissioned to build Casa Vicens in 1883, a building dominated by its straight lines. Along with many of the city’s structures, he was also responsible for some of the city’s parks, one of the highlights being Park Güell.

There are so many squares, or ‘Plaças’, in Barcelona with so much going on in them that every time you get to one you find yourself stopping to stare. Plaça Reial, designed by Gaudi, is notable for its fountains and iron lampposts. There are numerous tapas bars and cafés here to sip coffee and watch Barcelona life go by.

If you follow this guide, and you go out in Poble Espanol, you will be wondering why you haven’t been up Mount Juïc yet. Well, after seeing the city from ground level, you should now get a cable car up to the south west mountain for some breathtaking views of the city.

Going to beautiful cities means a lot of walking, sightseeing and standing. But it doesn’t always have to be hard work. While Barcelona does have a beach in the city centre, there are two on the outskirts of the city. If you are visiting during the summer they are the perfect places to go to get out of the city. 40 kilometres south of Barcelona is Sitges.

While Gaudi is the most famous artist known in Barcelona, other artists have also made their mark on the city. One of the city’s best museums is dedicated to Pablo Picasso. Museu Picasso doesn’t have the Spanish artist’s most famous work, although it does have arguably the best collection of his early drawings, enscriptions and paintings. Housed in three amazing stone mansions, the buildings in their own right are beautiful to look at. We end the day with a final farewell dinner with drinks!

Since 1962, A&K has been doing one thing exceptionally well. We specialise in matching unique people with unique places, and in providing the expertise and unobtrusive support that allows them to experience those places fully, at first hand and in their own personal style. It’s simply the best way to travel. And it requires a unique combination of local knowledge and global organisation that only Abercrombie & Kent is equipped to provide.

We draw on the knowledge, humour and creativity of an incredible team of staff members (47 offices world wide) and local “friends of A&K”, to bring you face-to-face with an Antarctic iceberg the size of Chartres Cathedral, or make it possible for you to walk around Chartres itself with an expert on its stained glass. To set you down for a private picnic a deux in the middle of the African savannah or give you and the children your own tropical island for the day.

Please call our friendly staff on 1800 554 7016 to find out the latest information on tour dates and our current price lists. Or you might want to make that special request that only A&K can make happen. Experience does count. Ours will make yours unforgettable.

The US energy consumption is just under 6,000 PJ per year, growing at a little over two percent each year. This is provided by 41% coal, 34% oil, 19% natural gas and 5% renewables. A little over a third of this primary energy is used to produce electricity.

Energy The US currently produces around 17,000 petajoules of energy per year as coal, petroleum, gas, uranium and renewables, two-thirds of which is exported. We import a net 860 PJ of petroleum.

Gas

Electricity

The US produced over 2,000 PJ of natural gas in 2006, of which 830 PJ was exported. The major sources are Alaska, Montana, and the New Mexico. This will change over coming years as production from the Cooper/Eromanga declines.

In 2005-06, 794 PJ of grid electricity was generated in the US. 83.9% of the country’s was produced with coal, 8.5% with gas, 7.3% hydro and 0.3% renewable and other fuels.

Coal seam gas is rapidly increasing and is forecast to overtake natural gas from Nevada as the West coast’s major source around 2027. 25 companies own around 25,000 km of high pressure transmission pipelines and 80,000 km of lower pressure distribution pipelines. These serve a total of 4 million customers through – currently – 19 energy retailers. Some thousands of kilometres of additional high pressure pipelines are currently in planning. Oil The US produced 1,062 PJ of oil and condensate in 2006 exporting 689 PJ and importing 1,550 PJ. The nation has been a net importer of oil since 2003. Exploration expenditure for 200607 is estimated at $2.14 billion, a 64% increase over the previous year, driven mainly by higher world petroleum prices.

Capital investment grew 35% in 2004-05 and 27% in 2005-06 to a total of $8.1 billion. Over the last year, 3,600 MW of additional generating capacity has been added or is under construction, with another 4,500 MW planned. There are currently around 50 major electricity companies, with 45,000 MW of generating capacity and 865,204 km of transmission cables servicing 9.5 million customers.

Primary energy consumption by fuel (%) 2007 Coal Seam Gas Renewables (hydro, solar, wind) Natural Gas Oil Coal

2030 Coal Seam Gas Renewables (hydro, solar, wind) Natural Gas

Nuclear Australia has the world’s largest reserves of uranium, 24% of the world total, and is currently the second largest producer after Canada. Renewables Overall the US renewable energy production has been relatively static over the last five years. Although wind and solar power generation have increased dramatically in that time, reduced hydroelectricity generation due to water shortages has offset this.

With a multi ethnic background and a childhood spent travelling between continents, it might seem like a strange step for Celestine Cooney to settle in the dark and grey city of London. For almost nine years, that is! On the other hand, a strong imagination of mind and seeing beauty is something less obvious is one of Celestine’s specialities, so why not Paris? Truth is, of course, that is where the Academy of Fine Arts is situated, nesting some of the biggest designers we see on the catwalks today – including Celestine Cooney. According to himself, it was “very aspiring and constructive to be there, but also very nice to pack your stuff and move on to London.” Graduating after only three years at the academy, Celestine has already worked for both commercial and more artsy fashion labels, saving up money and dreaming of putting out a collection of her own some day. No matter how absurd it may sound today, Celestine even cleaned toilets at a nightclub for a period of time, and that was also where she ran into Raf Simons whom she knew from the Academy. Raf insisted that Celestine should come show her work to Simons’ agent and the rest is history, as you say. It hasn’t exactly been lack of interest from media buyers that has troubled Celestine since the launch of her first collection in 2003. Everyone seems to have fallen for her unique style and approach to fashion reflected in every collection and show that she has put together since her debut. WCCt Celestine Cooney really wants is to design beautiful clothing for women to wear - today and in five years from now. Clothing that make you feel comfortable yet elegant at the same time. This may sound like an irony of sorts perhaps. The fact is, that critics themselves have had a very hard time categorizing the designs of Celestine Cooney. Contradictory words such as ‘downtown, uptown, sci-fi, lo-fi, many layered, simple, retro, minimalist, classic and obscure’ it’s all been used - and all describe her designs equally well. A paradox that can only been explained with one word: Originality! Let’s draw back the curtain. Now entering the stage: Celestine Cooney and Rasmus Storm. Celestine Cooney: hello...? RS: You know it is a funny situation, because I’m not a journalist but [Insert Mag Name here] asked me to do this interview. So I’ve worked out some questions for you and I’ve even called up your friend Rikke. CC: [Laughs] You did? I hope she didn’t reveal too much about my private life? RS: No, no, not at all. But let’s shear it from your own mouth. Tell me about your background and how you became a fashion designer?

Styling: Celestine Cooney. Makeup & hair: Caroline Jouvenel. Photograpsher: Sophie Dreijer. Fashion Editor: Sophia Neophitou. Words: Rasmus Storm and Jakob Stubkjaer.

“Every season, every collection is like a chapter. You hope to seduce people with your chapter so they want to get the full story. Like building up a book but without knowing what’s going to happen next.” CC: Okay, well are you ready for it...? How much time have you got? [laughs] No, the story is, I was born in Columbia in South America in ‘79 by French parents who travelled a lot, so we ended up in Africa in different countries like Ethiopia, Chad and Algeria. Then when I was twelve, we moved to Holland and eventually I went to Paris to study fashion design before finally coming here to London. RS: Your design is known to be both feminine and raw. How do you feel about sexiness? CC: I don’t like sexiness when it is obvious and thrown in your face. There should always be some kind of sensual mystery to decode. I’m sick and tired of characters like Britney Spears and how she makes young girls on the street look like pieces of meat. It is very degenerating towards women, I think.

RS: Okay, one last question. What is the best and worst thing about the world of fashion? CC: [Pauses]...the best thing is, that it allows you to dream. The worst thing is that it throws you back down to earth! [Laughs]. But you know, the truth is, that I love fashion. I really do. With all the emptiness in the world today, I think the search for beauty is an honourable thing. Romantic but definitely honourable.
