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.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Just when you probably thought the Royal Endeavors – Scotland adventures got all of my creative juice flowing while enchanting your perception in my previous yet marvelous episodes, I dare to challenge you again with yet another fantastic masterpiece revolving around one of Glasgow’s most popular free visitor attraction – Kelvingrove Art Museum and Gallery. 

By now, you might be well aware of the awe, amazement and respect I proudly stand in for Scotland, a country which I solemnly appreciate for its magical, mythical and mystical relevance and absolutely praise for its healthy endeavors, such as doctors prescribing quality time to be spent in nature for a series of conditions raging from depression to diabetes and treating knife crime among young people as health issue, an inspired strategy which has led to a dramatic decrease in stabbings across the country. If these facts don’t impress you, I don’t know what will but I am giving it a try anyway.

By now, I have taken you higher on the wings of good fortune and wild imagination above two of Scotland’s most famous and impressive castles, Stirling and Inveraray. We have admired the world famous Unicorn Tapestries together and cat-walked elegantly through extravagant decors pertaining to the iconic Duke of Argyll Gothic Revival country mansion, we have deepened the symbolical meaning enriching the historical references and mystified every peculiar detail in order to set the tone high for the fabulous surprises forthcoming. 

Now it is time for another superb jewel embellishing Scotland’s crown of significance, the outstanding Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the country’s most visited free attraction. With 22 themed, state-of-the-art galleries displaying an astonishing 8000 objects, the collections are extensive, wide-ranging and internationally-significant, as you will have the pleasure to discover in my dedicated blog post.
They include natural history, arms and armour, art from many art movements and periods of history and much more. Welcome to Heaven, my Lords of the Isles!
