Royal Endeavors – Basque Country

Processed with VSCO with c8 preset

Ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome to the much expected last Royal Endeavors episode, dedicated to my excellent travel experience and spiritual journey in Basque Country.

We have come a long way together to finally reach this milestone. You know how much I appreciate your patience – I am also deeply involved in the process of living consciously and mindful so please feel free to highly appreciate my time investment and persistant dedication to follow my passion against all odds – there have been quite a few. I am glad the challenges stopped. I am thankful it’s still Mercury Retrograde going on so I somehow have the proper mood to deliver what I have started a long time ago. As much as I would have prefered to split this blog post in a couple of them more, I feel I deserve some space to breathe after I deliver my adventures in wonderland therefore I will keep it cool and short.

What’s being served this time? Everything on point. Let’s dive deep into my cultural tripping around the world with (even) more cathedrals and museums. I know. Just when you though I had seen them all… Today’s menu consists of my delightful experiences in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Valladolid, Pamplona and Palencia. I will start the journey of a thousand pictures by telling you a funny story of how I got stuck between four closed doors in Catedral de Pamplona for a little while, with low phone signal and literally no one to shout to for help. Nothing to worry about. I didn’t panic much either, I thought it was kind of symbolic to whatever life situation I had put myself through and I needed to get out of. I literally can’t stop thinking about a basic coaching question whenever something out of the ordinary happens: “What is this trying to teach me?”. That’s the perfect way to cool off.

So I called our official guide for help after three failed attempts due to the low signal in the two squared meters dark chamber located in a corner of an impressive cathedral which had only a few visitors during the siesta time, but as soon as I heard it could take 10 minutes for him to reach me, the perspective of being stuck there for too long didn’t feel enlightening enough so I finally pushed an enormous door a little bit harder and got myself out. I never shouted for help but I hardly doubt anyone could have heard me. The curious thing is that the door I went through was one of no return. The other two seemed not to have been used at all so there was only one I could possibly use, which was ceiling high and faced the entrance of the cathedral. It was probably a centuries old original intricately carved massive wooden door. I was also extremely happy to have done so by myself, without panic, suffering an anxiety attack or needing extra help. I’ve noticed this aspect about myself – I have no problem to ask for help if I can’t do something on my own but I happen to do that just to know there’s a safe net in case I need it. I rarely get to use it though but the possibility gives me confidence to be in charge of the situation. That’s all I need. I guess everybody needs someone to count on, after all.

Royal Endeavors – Catedral de Burgos

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.

Glory To The Holy – The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan

IMG_1107“God can be realized through all paths.
All Religions are True.
The important thing is to Reach the Roof.”
– Ramakrishna

My Beloved Audience,

We have gathered here today for a Moment of Beauty, Peace and Enlightenment which will last through Eternity on my Personal “Fashion” Blog, dedicated to the Land of the Rose Desert and Spiritual Light – which I personally feel the Greatest Respect and Infinite Gratitude for – the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan – my Holy Land.
Endless Words of Wisdom and Thoughts of Appreciation will be displayed to depict the Act of Conscience Transformation which occurred during my 8 days visit, given the fact I chose not to use the Internet or any social media platforms at all, but insisted to stay grounded and fully connected to People and the Universe around me.
I now recommend it to anyone – put your phone down and just start living! As simple as that.
Given the High Interest I manifest in Religious Practices and Spirituality, I have started to bring my Thoughts to Life during the Ramadan month in order to create the divine opportunity for my thoughts to prosper and my 5D Vision to enlighten you with the True Story about my dear Kingdom which houses Petra – the Rose City – one of the New 7 Wonders of the World.

The Powerful Revelation happened during Easter – the most auspicious Time to Receive Divine Blessings, Ancestral Knowledge and Spiritual Gifts. I will start by mentioning I was Lucky enough to travel with my Parents – the Gatekeepers of the Universe – a group of experienced intellectuals and a skilled guide – all a pleasure to discuss, debate and entertain with. I am engaged into a continuous (life-time) process of personal growth – like all of us should – learning by doing and feeling, which leads to gaining a deeper Understanding of Life and the Universe, and, in spite of my various acts of solitude to energetically charge and cleanse, I appreciate how much I can learn from people if I talk or listen.

For your kind information, Jordan is an Arab Kingdom in Western Asia, situated on the East Bank of the Jordan River – bordered by Saudi Arabia to the east and south; Iraq to the north-east; Syria to the north; Israel, Palestine and the Dead Sea to the west; and the Red Sea in its extreme south-west, Land strategically located at the crossroads of Asia, Africa and Europe, in the Levant area of the Fertile Crescent, a cradle of civilization.
According to the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, Jordan is home to around 100,000 archaeological and tourist sites. Some very well preserved historical cities include the majestic Petra and Jerash, the former being Jordan’s most popular tourist attraction and an Icon of the Kingdom. Jordan is part of the Holy Land and has several biblical attractions that attract pilgrimage activities. Biblical sites include: Al-Maghtas where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, Mount Nebo, Umm ar-Rasas, Madaba and Machaerus.

The thing that impressed me the most during the well deserved visit to Jordan was the way I was received by the Arabic people, who were always greeting tourists with large smiles on their faces; I was especially flattered by the ladies (of all ages) asking to take photos/selfies with me. I love taking pictures – this is how I express myself, remain aware of myself and Self-Confident – I should be doing this for the rest of my Life. I am a Pro and I mix it with Pleasure. That’s the Secret to Success. I am also getting intensively accustomed with being in the Center of Attention, as long as it is Positive and Inspiring for others, that is.
Whenever I was asked the FAQ “Where are you from?”, the fact that I come from Romania reinforced the positive impression I (knew I) had on people. I am pleasantly surprised of how well Arabic people acknowledge and accept the premises of diversity and inclusion. It is an act of Faith and Courage to embrace the cultural differences of your Brothers by the Father in a world which had praised the opposite until now, the Times of Spiritual Evolution we are living. Again, it is in everyone’s Power to design Personal Reality – I am here to let you know which your options are. I choose Peace, Love and Understanding over anything else, considering the Flow of Abundance always manifesting into my Life. A cultural fact to be mentioned is the fact that many Jordanians have studied in Romania, choosing to form families with Romanian women, which is also a reason why Romanian people are respected and warmly welcomed in Jordan. Most of the People I have met even knew a few words or songs in Romanian, lol. This is how Well I was received in One of my favorite Countries I have ever visited.

Hello, darlings!

It’s the 1st of May, a delightful free-from-work Monday for the majority of people all across the globe – the Sun is casting its brilliance on national barbecues frying traditional sausages all over Romania (also known as “littles” lol), adding a touch of Gold to the working men off duty plastic bottled beers.
As much as I would like to keep it simple (and I don’t), the socialist meaning of such an important feast does not comfort me, therefore I did a little side-searching on the elevated spiritual significance of this day to comfort my thirst for Art and Beauty.
Of course, the results of my search are much more appealing than your barbecue (d/g)rill – “Seek and you will Find” – thanks to God – I didn’t necessarily want to conform to the sausage inauguration today, instead I went with the Wiki flow in order to honor May Day as the popular secular celebration it has become since pre-Christianity, celebrating the traditional Crowning of the Queen of May. (yes, that is definitely proper information for me!)
