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 – 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 – San Sebastián

#PrincessaPetra x #SanSebastian #GloryToTheHoly #Proph3ticJustice

Ladies and gentlemen,

Bine v-am regasit! Welcome! Bienvenido! Bienvenue! Willkommen! to my latest Royal Endeavors exclusive travel episode dedicated to the lovely seaside resort of Donostia – San Sebastián in Basque Country, a lively slice of Heaven touched by the Sun God that promises to bless you with breathtaking landscapes and incredible heights and sights. I truly hope this article will inspire you to grace the divine SanSe with your presence wholeheartedly, as its positive, uplifting energy had a wonderful effect on my mood and general state of well-being, possibly due to the excellent weather conditions which made all these fabulous pictures possible. If you ask the locals, you will be truly suprised by the fact the weather is not this friendly all the time, therefore I consider us truly blessed to have had such a wonderful experience.

Second of all, since I absolutely love my mood shining through these pics, I would like to dedicate some kind words of appreciation to the All Mighty Universe for the major global events which happened during this passed Gemini season, which made an extraordinary difference, and to show my grattitude for the positive changes I noticed since my 33rd birthday.

You will not believe the feeling of easiness, flow and relief I have since I celebrated my rebirth into Christ Consciousness, the symbolic age of the ascension of Christ into the presence of God in Heaven.

Royal Endeavors – Biarritz

#PrincessaPetra x #Biarritz #GloryToTheHoly #Proph3ticJustice

My dear audience,

I am pleased to delight you with a freshly pressed spectacular Royal Endeavors traveling episode, this time dedicated to Biarritz, a fancy coastal city located on the Bay of Biscay (Atlantic coast), which lies south-west to France, in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department of the Aquitaine territory, a few miles from the border of Spain. Considering I only spent a few hours enjoying this seaside marvel, I will keep my words witty and my speech rather short this time, yet rich in details, as always.

My visit to Biarritz was part of a designated day trip including San Sebastian, which will be the main subject of a separate blog post shortly, given the totally different moods and weather conditions we experienced on the same day. While Biarritz was moody, cloudy, cold and therefore probably gave a false impression of stiffness, San Sebastian was bathing in the warmth of the ever glowing spring sun, making all my lovely panoramic pics possible, sprinkling joy over my pretty face. I cannot wait to share my marvelous experience with you, darlings, but meanwhile, let’s dig a few facts about Biarritz.

Off the record, the now fashionable former fishing village made famous after 1854 by Napoleon III and his Spanish empress is a bit overrated for my taste but still elegant, in the discreet, old money, French kind of way, at the opposite pole of show-off.

Visited by Queen Victoria, Edward VII, and Alfonso XIII of Spain, Biarritz began to call itself “the queen of resorts and the resort of kings.” Now being a surfing attraction definitely allows a fresh air of salty exuberance and charming youth to wrap carelessly around the contrasting valances pondered by the classy boutiques, fancy restaurants and high quality chocolate shops which I definitely recommend.

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.

On the Sparkle of Intuition.


Michelangelo – The Dream of Human Life (after 1533)

“Intuition is seeing with the soul.”
– Dean Koontz

Dear audience,

A series of fortunate events which shaped my perspective in the past few years have inspired the decision to raise awareness on the Sparkle of Intuition, which is an amazing opportunity we are given in order to tap deep into our spiritual senses and connect to an instinctive knowledge which is extremely important in self development. The last experience on this matter was having a little wrench during a call with a recruiter a couple of days ago for a Marketing Copywriter position for a financial product, which honestly does not reflect my sphere of interests. In spite of the short call being polite and decent, I realized she did not say any word about the company she was recruiting for and I was presented with a test to complete in 48 hours. The test itself was not a big problem, considering Google, my skills and imagination, but the shortage of details, such as company presentation, position on market, job description and other important matters were awfully missing. I don’t know about you, guys, but if I am handed over with a test, I need to know who and why I am investing my time and effort for.

The same rationale applies for the countless time consuming recruitment phases in some companies, which for them might count as a “strict” selection but, for me the process reveals a lack of prepared recruiters able to use their knowledge and intuition to find the most suitable candidate for a position. Let’s just think about the availability of junior, middle and top managers to interview a candidate in advanced phases, which suggests the pace of the company is rather slow. I dare say the professional advancement might as well follow this particular trend. What do you think? I decided to deal with my wrench by being thankful for the opportunity and honest in regards to my lack interest for the field, which she appreciated by sharing my opinion the field and product are very important for the creative.

As most of my successful decisions in life were based on intuition, which was behind finding reasonable and quick responses to every challenge, especially in the professional environment, an ability which was enhanced since I have started walking on the path of self-development, I am pleased to follow my annual tradition to dedicate the first post of the May birthday celebration month to my spiritual duties of spreading knowledge and enlightenment. I choose not to discuss the so-called “magical phenomenon” of intuition from a psychological standpoint as the information might become hard to follow and swallow, but rather encourage everyone to practice an exercise of dimming the outside “noise” or distractions in favor of peace and quietness, by shutting down rumination and clearing inner space for that particular sparkle of higher intelligence, commonly called The Intuition.
