International Weekender: September 18 through 21, 2014

We already spoil you with a weekly rundown of the hottest events in your city – but for jetsetters like you, sometimes that just isn’t enough.

You want to know exactly what’s going on wherever your plane may touch down over the next four days.

Well, now you can.

As for learning the local language, that one’s on you.

Milan Fashion Week
Cavalli, Armani, Prada, Fendi, Gucci, and Canada’s DSquared – yup, this one’s big (surprise, surprise – it’s in freakin’ Milan). Whether you’re a name in fashion or just its biggest fan, there’s no better place to be from Sept. 17-23.

Utopia, Tel Aviv
Utopia is exactly what Tel Aviv offers science fiction fans from Sept. 13-20 during this festival for all things science, imagination, and the future. Even if Avatar is the closest you’ve come to the genre, Tel Aviv is always worth a stop.

Berlin Art Week
Art professionals and observers alike are flocking to Berlin for six days from Sept. 16-21 to take in the city’s official Art Week, featuring an exciting mix of contemporary showcases currently making waves in the vibrant German city as well as internationally.

2014 Asian Games, Incheon, South Korea
If you simply can’t wait until next year’s Pan Am Games for your next major sports fix, this one’s for you. Observe the largest sporting event in Asia as 45 nations compete in almost 450 events from Sept. 19 to Oct. 4.

Reworks Festival, Thessaloniki, Greece
If electronic music’s your calling, you’ll want to pencil in a stop at Reworks Festival between vacationing in Mykonos and Santorini. The 10th anniversary edition kicks off with a Max Richter concert and world-renowned symphony performance before turning decidedly more dance. Sept. 19-21.

The London Design Festival
We had a chance to check out bits and pieces of the London Design Festival in between fashion week appointments over the past few days and can only recommend marking it down on your calendar. On until Sept. 21, there’s simply no better window into the international creative community – and in the design capital of the world, to boot.

Equinox at Chichen Itza, Mexico
Be honest: You’ve always wanted to step into the Mayan world – especially when you found out life exists past 2012. If the chance to see a shadowy serpent winding down one of the world’s most impressive structures – which happens just twice a year – doesn’t send you South, you might as well stop promising yourself you’ll do it one day. Take an extra long weekend and be there on Sept. 23.
