Royal Endeavors – Sights and Delights: The Flavors of Istanbul

Processed with VSCO with e6 preset
“Istanbul, a universal beauty where poet and archeologist, diplomat and merchant, princess and sailor, northerner and westerner screams with same admiration. The whole world thinks that this city is the most beautiful place on earth.”

– Edmondo De Amicis

Ladies and gentlemen,

One thing is certain – never have I delivered so many Royal Endeavors signature episodes than in the past year, which, on an individual level, proves my increasing level of self-awareness and demonstrates an unshakable dedication to provide generous knowledge and solid inspiration for my beloved audience.
That is because Royal Endeavors is a lifestyle concept, a unique form of giving what has been taken with an extra touch of artistry, a refined channel to convey insights for impact and subconsciously convert the non-believers to a superior form of being one with their surrounding beauty, a belief that seeks to powerfully support and gently transform the collective perspective on the Art of Living in alignment with Honor, Purpose and Authenticity.

I warmly invite you to walk closely during this fabulous journey, which will be rather short, as I am planning to provide my precious insights for The Ultimate Shopping Guide in Istanbul separately. Please take into account it was probably my third time visiting this breathtaking city, therefore some of its main attractions which I strongly advise you to consider on your first time will not be covered at this time. For example, Sultan Ahmed Mosque, Dolmabahçe Palace, Topkapi Palace, Galata Tower, Süleymaniye Mosque, Basilica Cistern and Maiden’s Tower are an absolute must, although I haven’t included them in the tales of this 6 days tour. Nevertheless, I promise to delight you with the majestic Hagia Sophia, all three Bazaars, a Bosphorus Cruise sprinkled with visual memories, a glimpse of the somptuos Beylerbeyi Palace and the incredible Intangible World Heritage Dervish Experience at Hodjapasha Theatre.

Let’s indulge together in the immense greatness of this unforgettable city, which never ceases to fascinate millions of tourists every year with its majestic architecture and luxurious experiences. One visit is never enough to taste its mystical flavors and enjoy the fabulous sightseeing therefore you can always find another reason to wander around its vibrant streets and connect to the energy of its intense living.

“To the one in the skies, this city must look like a scintillating pattern of speckled glows in all directions, like a firecracker going off amid thick darkness. Right now the urban pattern glowing here is in hues of orange, ginger, and ochre. It is a configuration of sparkles, each dot a light lit by someone awake at this hour. From where the Celestial Gaze is situated, from that high above, all these sporadically lit bulbs must seem in perfect harmony, constantly flickering, as if coding a cryptic message to God.”

“I am going to make everything around me beautiful – that will be my life.”

Elsie de Wolfe

My beloved audience,

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

– John 1:1

Following my recent statement made in one of the Royal Endeavors episodes dedicated to Scotland, a solemn statement regarding how much I love writing and expanding my knowledge and vocabulary with just the right words to inspire myself and others, I have come to consider the pertinent usage of high vibrational words is of crucial importance to attracting and manifesting what each of us intimately desires.

“Words, once they are printed, have a life of their own.”

– Carol Burnett

The idea of exploring the powerful vibrational resonance of words was inspired by one of my former colleagues, who surprised me one time while we were having dinner by saying I have a peculiar vocabulary – people don’t really speak like that apparently. When I asked her what she meant, she told me I simply don’t use the common words others do.

Of course, the idea of a stand-out vocabulary both flattered and intrigued me in the same time – without attempting to justify my speech in any way, I realized my state of mind, the quality of my inner thoughts, the impact of my presence and the way I express myself, apart from my aura and appearance which strike first – the overall quality of my living is deeply impacted by the resonance of the words I use. Considering I aim my presence to be warm, positive, soothing and light, I became a keen observant of my own speech and behavior.

“Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.”

– Yehuda Berg
