Royal Endeavors – Oviedo

Processed with VSCO with e2 preset

Hello darlings,

I am extremely pleased we meet again for another memorable Royal Endeavors breathtaking episode, still dedicated to Basque Country – a wonderful occasion to be grateful for the opportunities this country offered to me to get in touch with myself and to discover the many distinguished aspects of a fulfilling life.

As I have previously mentioned so many times in other travel episodes, art and beauty not only raise vibrations to a higher level of (self) consciousness and confidence but also nurture our souls with the divine energy of creation, representing the very core of a luxurious simplicity accessible to the humankind. I know I get deep but let’s hope my example will pave the way of self-discovery and personal development for some, as I believe the academic foundation of having studied Psychology and Education definitely shines out.

I am having a wonderful time lately enjoying a book of Dominique Loreau on The Art of Refinement and Luxury, preaching the priceless experiences of spicing up life with memorable but little gestures or activities that feed the soul, such as traveling to see an art exhibition, sipping coffee or tea from beautiful cups or acquiring only top quality garments which will last a lifetime. Having the chance to admire the stunning masterpieces created by blessed minds and divine hands definitely resonates to the idea of affordable luxury, whose positive impact can bring joy to any heart.

I will start this precious storytelling journey with Oviedo, the capital of the Principality of Asturias in northern Spain, an elegant and enchanting city known for its medieval old town and the site of the Gothic Oviedo Cathedral with its 9th-century Holy Chamber. When describing Oviedo the words “Charming” and “Historic” always come to mind. One can feel the sense of history in every step, while discovering the impressive Old District and strolling among Palaces, Churches, Convents and ancient buildings.

We only had a few hours to wonder around, visit the Museum of Fine Arts of Asturias (one of the best in Spain) or The Archeological Museum of Asturias, the 13th century Cathedral of San Saviour and eat if we still had time therefore I sacrificed the last to fully enjoy the art.

I only had a big slice tortilla in the last 5 minutes prior to the group meeting before our departure, that being, surprisingly, the cheapest food I ever tasted in Basque Country, which I compensated with my favorite sparkling water, San Pellegrino.

Royal Endeavors – Comillas

Processed with VSCO with g8 preset

Ladies and gentlemen,

As the Royal Endeavors travel adventures in Basque Country appear to be slowly coming to an end, I would like to welcome you to this very special edition, exclusively dedicated to the lovely coastal town hosting our 7 nights residence – the wonderful Comillas, one of the most beautiful towns in Cantabria, located at about 50km west of Santander, elegantly highlighted by its cobbled streets, open squares, picturesque beaches, historic buildings and a fine selection of Modernista residences, including the incredible El Capricho summer vila designed by Antoni Gaudí.

If you are wondering about the unusual Catalan Modernism touch of the town as compared to its surroundings, that is due to the emigrants who came back from America with a different architectural vision. Amongst these was the future Marquis of Comillas, who was rewarded this title for his valuable support in the Cuban conflict. He comissioned the majestic Neo-Gothic Sobrellano Palace, where you can admire Gaudí furniture as well, and its chapel – is now the Museum of the Marquises. Moreover, his son build the Pontifical University, which he offered to the pope, gaining the pontifical title in return.

We will start our short tour by introducing the mesmerizing El Capricho, the 19th-century Gaudí-designed chalet with its Mudejar-style tower covered in sunflower tiles, that became the centre of my interest as soon as we could enjoy some spare time to invest in local sightseeing. Don’t get me wrong but each day was dedicated to an organized visit to the representative cities of Basque City therefore leisure time to explore Comillas was rather short. The truth is we couldn’t have had a better residence than this lovely little town with its fascinating tourist attractions – so many architectural masterpieces concentrated in such a symbolic place!

Royal Endeavors – Bilbao and Santillana Del Mar

My darlings,

It is so good to be back on track by having the uplifted, creative mood just in time to deliver the next Royal Endeavors travel episode at a relatively fast pace, highering the standards on my blog to the now optimal frequency of posting to twice a week.

I have so many great memories in Basque Country, not to mention brilliant pics taken in the time pressuring conditions of organized tours and strict timelines, that I really take my time now in having the best mood possible in order to deliver greatness and also plenty of spare time to invest in writing and editing the material in order for my experience to be conveyed properly.

This royal episode is dedicated to the delightful Bilbao and its fabulous tourist attractions, although I will only stick with the ones I had the pleasure of visiting during those few hours we had available to enjoy ourselves in this remarkable city. Of course, depending on the duration of your stay in Bilbao, you will have many more amazing opportunities to connect to its sparkling vibe and contageous positivity or to enjoy its very tempting offerings.

We will start the marvelous journey with the Santiago Cathedral in the District of Casco Viejo, whose construction began in 1397 until the beginning of the 16th century and underwent a profound reconstruction in the 19th century. This was the first attraction that involved free time allowed by the guide to get the pulse of the surroundings, which I personally invested in visiting it, as you probably already have noticed by now how much I enjoy the solemn (neo)gothic decor, the graceful quietness and the faithful resistence of such majestic temples throughout history.

Royal Endeavors – Catedral de Burgos

#PrincessaPetra x #CatedralDeBurgos #GloryToTheHoly #Proph3ticJustice

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome back to the much expected but less anticipated Royal Endeavors eclectic episode which marks the beginning of the fabulous birthday adventures I recently had in Spain and Basque Country, by starting with a visit at the breathtaking Cathedral of Saint Mary of Burgos.

First I would like to mention this trip is featured and available in the Senior Voyage offer proposals of Christian Tour, one of the most appreciated travel agencies in Romania and the one in charge of most of the cultural trips I had taken with my parents, which we had very much enjoyed.

The greatest thing about these trips, except the destination, are the well-prepared and considerate guides, armed with impressive knowledge, patience and flawless people skills, the optional daily organized trips, which can be quite fast-paced, sometimes exhausting but incredibly rich in cultural and religious tourist attractions and the senior tourists accompanying us, which are absolutely delightful, to my opinion – witty, mannered and high spirited, just as I wish some people of my age would be. Honestly, I always prefer to be surrounded by younger or elder people I have much to learn from.

After waking up at 4 in the morning on the day of the departure, which was not my greatest pleasure (neither 7 or 8 is), we arrived with a Tarom flight to Madrid, where a brand new and fully equipped Christian Tour travel bus was waiting to take us to Comillas, a lovely municipality in Cantabria, northern Spain, set to be our residential town for the next seven days. We were part of an ideal group of 17 people, accommodated in a 54 seats bus so just imagine the discretion, space and comfort each of us had plus time to get to know each other.

With these being said, I will dedicate an exclusive Royal Endeavors blog post to the wonderful Comillas separately, as it hosts several architectural marvels, including one of the few villas designed by Antoni Gaudí outside of Catalonia – the exquisite El Capricho – spacious, intimate and delightful, an exquisite summer residence adorned with the Sun Flower symbol. Stay tuned for more!

Before going any further, deep diving into the historical background of Catedral de Burgos – the first gothic cathedral of the Peninsula – I would like to point out the outstanding psychological factor of seeing such a majestic ornamented interior has on my personal state of being. This is simply a personal experience based on keen observation, combined with a little bit of self-awareness, sprinkled over the refinement of my tastes through time.

I do understand other architectural currents such as minimalism but they are not really my cup of tea. Speaking about tea, the fact that I adore a smokey black African one gives a great suggestion on my preference for any art form which is oppulent, highly decorated, heavy in details, bursting with symbolism and myth in front of my very eyes. This heavy art with a twist of myth and magic is what truly energizes me, especially on my arrival in Spain, after a too early morning start and quite a long journey – not the big empty spaces in fancy “greige” (grey+beige) marble shades but the Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance styles intertwined to shine light upon this  reigning beauty of Castile and León, the impressive Metropolitan cathedral of Burgos, groundbreaking in 1221.

Built over more than four centuries, the Cathedral bears testimony to the creative genius of architects, sculptors, and craftsmen throughout these periods.

The monument is an extraordinary summary of European Gothic influences, which can be admired in every component of the structure, from the facades and chapels to the stained glass windows and sculptures and contains all key attributes to express its Outstanding Universal Value, having been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.

Royal Endeavors – Interior Design

CFA36F03-C0F3-41BF-BC7C-B1A02C64DC66

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome back to the spiritual realms of my Royal Endeavors artful episodes, featuring Your Divine Highness, the One and Only, QueenP. As always, I will be your delightful host for this wonderful edition, praising nothing but Beauty, Art and Luxury, as a freshly graduated Interior Design aficionado supervised by the famous Martine Claessens, in the context of the intensive course provided by Designist – Creative Learning.

After 7 intensive weeks of graceful lectures, sprinkled with wonderful visual details and celebrated through inspirational homework, which for me was a real pleasure to complete, I have decided to show off my progress through a dedicated blog post. Please excuse my professional ignorance, but as a spiritual being having a worldly experience, I have always assumed that architects symbolically limit our direct communication with the Divine Source by placing a roof above our heads and several walls around our body. Little did I know how relevant would Interior Design be from a symbolical perspective, by triggering the much expected step further into maturity I needed to take, in what concerns both my mentality and behavior.

As I have previously mentioned, 7 is my Destiny Number, so it is a matter of synchronicity and not coincidence we were notified during out first classes the course will be intensive and finalized earlier than expected, taking up 7 weeks. The number 7 is a highly spiritual number. It is the combination of both 3, the number of unbridled creativity, and 4 the number of mastery of the material plane. When you combine these forces, you end up with an astonishing spiritual aptitude and an unique destiny. You can imagine the frequency I have observed both 3 and 4 in triple sequences lately (333, 444), but also 7 and 8, which I consider to be a very lucky omen.

During the 7 weeks duration of the course, I have noticed an increased frequency of vivid dreaming, all concerning the home of my departed grandparents, which now belongs to me. I was either cleaning by sweeping floor or discussing with workers on how to proceed with the renovation I was clearly in charge. The action which I recall in detail was talking to two gardeners which were removing weeds in regards to the swings I would like to have in the garden. You will probably notice the presence of a swing in Veronica’s art room presentation following the discourse.

As you could be aware of, the significance of a house symbol appearing in dreams relates to our Mind, Body and Soul, the house of our Spirit, and it is no wonder how important taking this class was for my spiritual ascension. The mere fact of beautifying a person’s surroundings, his home, the most intimate comfort zone, is the equivalent of weeding the garden of his Soul, paiting the walls of his Spirit with Grace and decluttering his Mind of the burden of negative thoughts.

For a person like myself, dedicated to bringing Comfort, Joy and Beauty everywhere I go, this spiritual interpretation I have enhanced Interior Design with is spectacular. When we are talking about an awake, spiritual person holding the Power of Creation over his Universe, on a material level, this translates into designing and decorating his own home. I am sure you follow me, therefore I will start the Royal Endeavors adventure by making the presentations and introducing my work.

A venit momentul sa ma despart oficial de unele piese iconice din garderoba mea, haine si accesorii atent selectionate, care ies in evidenta prin printuri eclectice, tesaturi nobile si materiale luxoase si promit impresii de neuitat. 

Pentru ca nu le mai pot acorda atentia pe care o merita, am decis sa celebrez aceste piese printr-un shooting exclusiv, in spiritul initiativei Revival Of Tribal de a promova cultura vintage ca alternativa sustenabila la “fast fashion”, initiativa care incurajeaza expresivitatea vestimentara si glorifica unicitatea stilului personal, contribuind in acelasi timp la cresterea constientizarii implicatiilor productiei in masa asupra mediului si a responsabilizarii fiecareia dintre noi in privinta alegerilor pe care le facem.

On the Law of Change.

Charles Chaplin – A Beauty with Doves (19th century)

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

Happy Happy 2019!!! I am confident this will be an exceptional year for all of us, sprinkled with high levels of awareness, creativity, talent, self-confidence, enlightenment, important breakthroughs, countless blessings and endless opportunities to shed the aged thinking and behavior patterns, along with 365 chances to be truthful to ourselves and others and daily manifest Joy, success and abundance into our lives. 

“Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.”

Benjamin Franklin

This is my first spiritual blog post of 2K19 and it gives me nothing but a great sense of reverence towards the Universe for the inspiration to deliver it to you in the first month of the year and initiate its manifestation into writing on the 11th day. 

You do know how fascinated I am with synchronicities and numerology, therefore it shouldn’t come as a great surprise this particular day is charged with the great energy of alignment. Moreover, I am delivering this spiritual guidance on my 3rd year blog anniversary. I had no idea I started it on the 13th of January but WordPress just reminded me of this precious notification highlighted in fuchsia. I have no idea if I chose the color myself or it is one of the Universe’s great mysteries but it surely gives me hope for the best (as always), as well as the white dove appearing in my dream last night. I am not sure if I have mentioned the two eclipses of this month yet but there is serious astrological evidence there is real magic floating in the fresh air of winter. There is also an abundance of snow beautifying the grey streets of Bucharest, while I am hanging out most of my time with my precious puppy, Joy. 

“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.”

― Eckhart Tolle
