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.”

I’ve seen you, beauty, and you belong to me now, whoever you are waiting for and if I never see you again, I thought. You belong to me and all Paris belongs to me and I belong to this notebook and this pencil.
– Ernest Hemingway

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Following my Royal Path into the coeur of the City of Love, I have decided to enchant you with a distinguished and versatile selection of three incredible locations which I wholeheartedly recommend to visit while you’re on vacation in my favorite city in the whole wide world ever since my first trip at 11 years old, which I have been visiting yearly and dearly for the past 5 years.
It will probably come to you as a total surprise I haven’t seen these luxurious places before, therefore I am more than flattered to share my precious experience with you, which aims to provoke and inspire you to follow my lead deep down into the Heart of the City of Romance.

No matter the weather, keep it in your mind there will always be something absolutely mesmerizing about Paris to surprise you, whether you’re in for a little treat (I mean trip) or you’re a well established resident of this global center for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture.

Whoever does not visit Paris regularly will never really be elegant.
– Honoré de Balzac

Royal Endeavors – Sibiu

img_0768Highly Involved with the Winter Sun – Episode 1. – Sibiu Christmas Market.

Hallo, my Christmas deers! 🎁🎁🎁

“Winter is coming” and I wish I didn’t open up my seasonal speech with such a promotional cliche but I absolutely adore the magic and enchantment it brings! 🎄🎄🎄
The urban peisage turns sparkling and festive as the Christmas markets open the doors of ethical perception to hand made crafts and delights and delicious street cuisine. The perfect opportunity to share my vision in just a few words – I support family businesses and creative arts, the dedication and emotional imprint the final product is enriched with, as opposed to the consumerist perspective and commercial trends. 🎉🎉🎉
I had the ocassion to visit Sibiu recently – the Härmeschtat of Transylvania, the first Romanian city designated to be European Capital of Culture in 2007 – for the annual Christmas Market, the 10th Anniversary edition! 🎊🎊🎊🎊🎊
The Paitici Royal Family Queen and King have joined me and they are the ones to thank for this wonderful trip, highly documented in artsy captures of myself adorning the medieval decor.
An episode to be enjoyed with Sun and Joy! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
