Abu Dhabi, UAE
October 7 - 9, 2010

Let's start the month with something full of adrenaline. Adrenaline Sports Live, held at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre from October 7th to 9th, is the only event of its kind in the Middle East and it includes sport challenges on the sea, land and in the air. Just a brief look at this year's events - The 3rd Abu Dhabi Dragonboating Festival, The 10th Anniversary DDE Champs - Skateboarding, Wakeboarding Championships, RC Car Competition - tells us that you can't be bored no matter what activity, indoor or outdoor, you like.

But wait, there are more interesting activities you can enjoy: Arab AM Skateboard Champs, Freestyle Soccer (that must be fun!), BMX competition, kayaking, parkour workshops, wall climbing, inline skating, jet skiing... Almost every adrenaline sport will have its place in Abu Dhabi. Middle East wouldn't be Middle East without beautiful and fast cars and that's where Barbican Turbo show fits in. You'll have a chance to see custom cars, modified cars, car tuning, bikes, and everything else that has tires and burns fuel.

London, United Kingdom
October 2 - 13, 2010

Now, after all those climbing, running, surfing and driving, it's time for something slower and more romantic: ballet. The Royal Opera House in London, also known as Covent Garden, until October 13th will be stage for the story of love, lust and passion. The choreographer John Cranko mixed two art giants, famous writer Pushkin and composer Tchaikovsky, and breathed a new life in well-known story about Eugene Onegin. Since there are two Russians involved, you can be sure that there will be a fireworks of emotions.

For those of you who forgot, let us remind you how the story goes: A young girl Tatyana in 1820s Russia falls in love with an older man Onegin, but he turns her down and flirts with her sister. Several years later they meet again but this time Onegin falls in love, charmed by the new Tatyana, well-educated and a member of high-society. This time he is turned down in one of the best speeches in literature ever. OK, we admit, that's the shortest possible plot, but we won't tell you more: go to Covent Garden and enjoy the beautiful three-act ballet.

Araruama, Brazil
October 11 - 17, 2010

On the other side of the world Brazil is happily expecting. In less than 67 days the happy state will be the host of the two main national events: Carnival in Rio de Janeiro and windsurfing Rio Formula World Festival that will take place at Praia Seca beach, "a natural paradise between the sea and a lagoon" from October 11th to 17th. The event incorporates the World Championships for Formula Windsurfing Youth, Formula Windsurfing Master and Formula Experience. The Festival also includes an international event for the other divisions in both Formula Windsurfing and Formula Experience classes.

After a few exciting days in Araruama and its stunning beach most probably you won't remember names of the winners but you will certainly remember festival's closing show. Because, Portela, one of the oldest Brazilian samba schools, was invited to close Rio Formula World. Beautiful Brazil! Even a windsurfing competition can't pass without swinging hips and spectacular costumes that, well, mostly cover the head. Anyway, in midd October Araruma is place not to be missed.

New York, USA
October 22 - 28, 2010

After hot Brazilian nights it's time to calm down a bit, and we know just the right place for you if you are in New York. From October 22nd to 28th New York is the host of International Fine Art and Antique Dealers Show, one of the world's most prestigious art and antique fairs. This glamorous event in Park Avenue Armory which has been founded in 1989 features all art pieces you can imagine and then some: from rare manuscripts and porcelain, to armour, furniture, jewellery, paintings and sculptures.

The International Fine Art and Antique Dealers Show is the first art and antique fair in the US that brought the highest standards to protect buyers. A range of art and commercial experts have set guidelines to make sure that buyers really get authentic pieces, and many of them are of museum quality. Thanks to exceptional range of quality works, New York will be the capital of the world's top art dealers this October. So, if you can, visit this fine fair and even if you don't buy anything you'll have a chance to enjoy art and antiques from all around the world.
