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.”
– Elif Shafak

Royal Endeavors – Horezu Legacy

Processed with VSCO with c7 preset

“My new deliberate and slower pace has created a higher quality in my experiences.”
– Lisa J. Shultz

Ladies and gentlemen,

Following the resounding success of the previous Royal Endevors exclusive episode, dedicated to the marvelous experience La Conac by AIO Living, comes this fabulous edition devoted to my recent family adventure to Horezu and its beautiful surroundings, fully charged with historic symbolism and a deep sense of authenticity. The historical landmarks to be revealed mark the outstanding representation of our national culture, proudly facing the test of time for centuries, while promoting strong values and embracing the solemn rhythm of tranquility and spiritual communion.

In this Royal Endevors episode, I will proceed to magically enchant you with the breathtaking view of Museum Complex of Maldaresti, the splendid interiors of Horezu Monastery, exclusively captured due to a striking synchronicity, all followed by fortune tales of the lovely dinner we had at Pastravaria Romani, a superb location offering a single dish – menu of the day – including the one of a kind experience of chosing your own fish out of a pond in order for it to be freshly cooked.

“Escape from complicated life! Take refuge in simple life! You will find three treasures there: Healthy body, peaceful mind and a life away from ambitious fools!”
– Mehmet Murat Ildan
