You spend most of the first week sleeping till late in the morning and wandering idly about your apartment.

After a few days you decide to give a buzz to a couple of friends but everyone seems to be away on holidays.

You look on the paper for the latest exhibitions and choose to see the one at the Metropolitan with early works by Picasso and another one by Barceló -one of the best-known contemporary Catalan artists.

You have real good fun but after paying a visit to a few other minor exhibitions, strolling in Central Park and sitting at some popular hip cafés, you start feeling that your days are getting monotonous and humdrum.

You still have some time to go before your work starts again so you decide to make the most of that time and take the wheel of the next few weeks.

Go back and choose a more inspiring and stimulating scenario.
