Hello, sweethearts!!! 👑

Welcome back to another splendid Royal Endeavors episode regarding my fabulous adventures in Scotland, dedicated to the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll, Chief of the Clan Campbell and the iconic, must-see visitor attraction on the West Coast of Scotland – the one and only marvelous Inveraray Castle. 

Inveraray Castle has been the seat of the Dukes of Argyll, chiefs of Clan Campbell, since the 18th century. A visit to this Gothic revival style country house gives an incredible insight into the history of the Campbells, once the most powerful clan in the Highlands. There’s amazing art everywhere, from the displays of Campbell family portraits through history to the lavishly painted interiors. You’ll see work by Thomas Gainsborough, John Hoppner and French artists Girard and Guinard, whose only work survives at Inveraray. 

Perhaps it was the French artistic touch and the baroque glamour of the interiors, the exquisite china and Highland ghost stories that fascinated me instantly when stepping into the extravaganza of this Royal residence, but that is not surprising at all considering the fact I was only surrounded by Art and Beauty. No wonder this envy-inducing castle has been selected as one of the 10 magnificent castles to explore in the old country of Scotland by CNN, precisely on National Tartan Day.

Royal Endeavors – The Natural History Museum

DE92E96B-727B-46ED-A35B-B7EC80D4F070

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome to my last episode dedicated to the glorious Cultural City of All Possibilities – London.
Indeed, I’ve already had the opportunity to present the highlights of my birthday trip in my previous three blog posts dedicated to House of Dimener, Victoria and Albert Museum and The British Museum, but nothing compares to the enlightening experience of visiting the Natural History Museum, an exempt charity and a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, which is home to life and earth science specimens comprising some 80 million items within five main collections: Botany, Entomology, Mineralogy, Paleontology and Zoology.
Moreover, I dare add, the Romanesque style of the building slightly resembles Harry Potter’s Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, which infused my spiritual journey as visitor with a great sense of mystery when approaching the depths of evolution, as exemplified by the exhibition of dinosaur skeletons, the priceless historical and scientific value of the specimens collected by Charles Darwin and the ornate architecture of the museum, which features the skeleton of a blue whale hanging from the ceiling – these being just a few, observable items which have deeply enriched my perspective.

Considering this article to be a culmination of the Spiritual Adventure sprinkled with editorial moments related to my well-deserved Birthday celebration, which both recalibrated my Energy and articulated the Power of my Intention towards Visualization and Manifestation, I would like to thank God for the inspiration He provided in carrying my footsteps towards the architectural highlights of London, my parents for the Education they continually provide which polishes my Divine State of Being into a brightly shining Diamond and enables me to seek Knowledge in order to expand my Conscience and Compassion, and myself for taking the decision to enter the cultural dimension of a fascinating metropolis, also regarded as one of the highlights of European Raving centers by the global community. This happens to be the reason I have been London first some years ago for raving reasons, therefore I am most grateful for having the chance to visit it throughly at a stage in life where my intellect is focused on improving myself, my skills and my dedication to Art and Beauty. I would also like to thank Claudiu Ciubotaru from House of Dimener for inviting me to celebrate our Twinning birthdays in London and granted my every Wish at the expense of other suggestions – in spite of his desire of investing precious time in partying and shopping, he held all doors to Perception and Possibilities opened for the Queen.

Nevertheless, on our way to the Natural History Museum, as I firmly believe in synchronicities, I was absolutely thrilled to discover The College of Psychic Studies, an educational charity offering regular classes, workshops, lectures and private consultations in the fields of personal, psychic and spiritual development and the healing arts, which caught my eye instantly, later to discover it has a College Integrated Healing Diploma Course I am most interested in attending. The instant manifestation of my thoughts while in London will never cease to surprise me, as well as the marvelous synchronicities which have contributed to glamorizing this British experience to reach the well-deserved status of being one of the most thrilling trips I have ever had.

Royal Endeavors – Château de Versailles

AAB0AF35-B615-480F-A7F8-2A9660C58DC5“When a Frenchman reads of the garden of Eden, I do not doubt but he concludes it was something approaching to that of Versailles, with clipped hedges, berceaus, and trellis work.”
– Horace Walpole

My beloved audience,

As much as you would like to go on and on and on about so many exquisite locations to visit around the world, the highlight of them all in regards to decadent opulence and gold is the fabulous Palais de Versailles, Château or whatever you want to name it – the crown jewel of France – Heaven on Earth. Dripping with gilt and marble, the colossal palace was the singular vision of Louis XIV, the almighty Sun King, whose lavish, lusty lifestyle mirrored his global ambition for France in the 17th century. It is one of the most distinguished palaces that enchanted my thirst for Beauty, Myth and Glory with an impressive story to tell – claimed and acclaimed an UNESCO World Heritage Site (1979) –  a place of legend and lore which will never cease to impress millions of tourists yearly with its pompous and luxurious style. All that glitters is gold.

“To the public imagination, Versailles is the epitome of opulence,” said Louise Boisen Schmidt, a Denmark-based writer at This is Versailles. “It represents an age in French history of both France’s rise as a fashion and power center as well as the dramatic — and bloody — decline of the monarchy.”
