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 – Bilbao and Santillana Del Mar

My darlings,

It is so good to be back on track by having the uplifted, creative mood just in time to deliver the next Royal Endeavors travel episode at a relatively fast pace, highering the standards on my blog to the now optimal frequency of posting to twice a week.

I have so many great memories in Basque Country, not to mention brilliant pics taken in the time pressuring conditions of organized tours and strict timelines, that I really take my time now in having the best mood possible in order to deliver greatness and also plenty of spare time to invest in writing and editing the material in order for my experience to be conveyed properly.

This royal episode is dedicated to the delightful Bilbao and its fabulous tourist attractions, although I will only stick with the ones I had the pleasure of visiting during those few hours we had available to enjoy ourselves in this remarkable city. Of course, depending on the duration of your stay in Bilbao, you will have many more amazing opportunities to connect to its sparkling vibe and contageous positivity or to enjoy its very tempting offerings.

We will start the marvelous journey with the Santiago Cathedral in the District of Casco Viejo, whose construction began in 1397 until the beginning of the 16th century and underwent a profound reconstruction in the 19th century. This was the first attraction that involved free time allowed by the guide to get the pulse of the surroundings, which I personally invested in visiting it, as you probably already have noticed by now how much I enjoy the solemn (neo)gothic decor, the graceful quietness and the faithful resistence of such majestic temples throughout history.

Royal Endeavors – Stirling Castle

Ladies and Gentlemen, 

Kings and Queens,

One of the glorious aspects of my intense summer was not the Sun shining onto my radiant Snow White skin, but my Soul shining from within when I was first touched ground on the mythical and mystical land of mountain wildernesses interspersed with glacial glens (valleys) and lochs (lakes), which is Scotland, my love. You would probably consider this trip to be a rather peculiar choice, considering my background of walking on the Path of Jesus in several Arabic countries, fascinated by aspects related to Life and Culture, which served their purpose of Enlightenment, but it is, nevertheless, one of the most outstanding trips I have ever had, considering the valuable Historical and Religious References which had broadened my horizons, the Myth and Glory surrounding its Land, the National Pride of its Natives, and the High Vibrational Energy I was exposed to, elements which had greatly impacted my conscience and contributed enormously to the life-changing events to follow. 

First of all, I would like to point out several aspects related to the country’s Independence, Early History, Religion, Education, National Identity, Renewable Energy and Woodland Expansion available for your general reference on Wikipedia and optimized by myself, in order to facilitate the public understanding of the general context and my personal preference for Scotland. I have only chosen information which I consider remarkable from a cultural and spiritual perspective, filtered at the level of my own Conscience and Experience, facts which have enriched my perception and awareness of Scotland being of the most valuable contribution not only to the world, but also to my Mission of Enlightenment. 

Then I would love to invite you to walk along myself onto the path of Glory of Stirling Castle, a remarkable treasure and one of Scotland’s grandest castles due to its imposing position and impressive architecture. The Scenery will take your breath away, Stirling Castle being one of the most naturally well defended and largest castles in all of Scotland. Cliffs defend 75% of the castle walls and intricate and beautiful hand-woven tapestries hang on the walls of the Queen’s Inner Hall in the royal palace. They all feature the national animal of Scotland – the Majestic and Fierce Unicorn, my favorite Symbol of Love and Purity, also linked to Christianity as you will soon discover.
Buckle up and follow my lead – this is the beginning of a beautiful journey!

“We look to Scotland for all our ideas of civilisation.”

Voltaire
