– Yann Martel

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

It gives me a great sense of accomplishment to present this enlightened Royal Endeavors episode, marked by the Monumentalist guided tour of my controversial yet distinguished hometown, Craiova, an exclusive blog post lovingly dedicated to my grandfather, Mugur Iordache, who had recently and graciously stepped into the eternal dimension.

He was a brilliant mathematician and a highly-reputed professor, with a remarkable career which spaned over decades of proudly serving his community by educating many generations of young minds to master the complexity and art of mathematics.

He lead a very respectful, organized life, beat collon cancer for good over thirteen years ago with much pride and courage and never stopped challenging his strength to walk for miles every day in the park until his last one, leading everyone by the power of his example of never giving up.

He was also my greatest Social Media admirer, always dropping encouraging comments while showing off my pics to my grandmother, therefore I strongly feel there is no better ocassion to pay homage to his loving memory than to dedicate the exclusive Monumentalist Craiova fabulous episode to him.

Firstly because there are many misconceptions about my home town, mostly based on violent incidents and bad news in the media, which denigrate its noble and rich intellectual history and elegant architectural legacy. Unfortunately, ordinary people who feed on such news may have no idea about the important landmarks the 6th largest city of Romania prides itself with.

There are countless historical and cultural sites in Craiova that can keep the traveler intrigued therefore my goal is to surprise my audience and lastingly impress it with some of the most somptuous edifices worthy of its time and attention, landmarks which I had the absolute pleasure of visiting during the Monumentalist Tour.

This eclectic journey would not have been possible without the initiative of AIO living and the brilliant guidance of Alexandru Buzatu, my former high school colleague, brilliant architect and devoted guide and of course, the Monumentalist movement.

Let’s now proceed with the discovery of the wonderful Craiova city.

“In Europe the rich are refined enough to act as if they’re not wealthy. That is how civilized people behave. If you ask me, being cultured and civilized is not about everyone being free and equal; it’s about everyone being refined enough to act as if they were. Then no one has to feel guilty.”
– Orhan Pamu

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 – 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.

Royal Endeavors – Interior Design

CFA36F03-C0F3-41BF-BC7C-B1A02C64DC66

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome back to the spiritual realms of my Royal Endeavors artful episodes, featuring Your Divine Highness, the One and Only, QueenP. As always, I will be your delightful host for this wonderful edition, praising nothing but Beauty, Art and Luxury, as a freshly graduated Interior Design aficionado supervised by the famous Martine Claessens, in the context of the intensive course provided by Designist – Creative Learning.

After 7 intensive weeks of graceful lectures, sprinkled with wonderful visual details and celebrated through inspirational homework, which for me was a real pleasure to complete, I have decided to show off my progress through a dedicated blog post. Please excuse my professional ignorance, but as a spiritual being having a worldly experience, I have always assumed that architects symbolically limit our direct communication with the Divine Source by placing a roof above our heads and several walls around our body. Little did I know how relevant would Interior Design be from a symbolical perspective, by triggering the much expected step further into maturity I needed to take, in what concerns both my mentality and behavior.

As I have previously mentioned, 7 is my Destiny Number, so it is a matter of synchronicity and not coincidence we were notified during out first classes the course will be intensive and finalized earlier than expected, taking up 7 weeks. The number 7 is a highly spiritual number. It is the combination of both 3, the number of unbridled creativity, and 4 the number of mastery of the material plane. When you combine these forces, you end up with an astonishing spiritual aptitude and an unique destiny. You can imagine the frequency I have observed both 3 and 4 in triple sequences lately (333, 444), but also 7 and 8, which I consider to be a very lucky omen.

During the 7 weeks duration of the course, I have noticed an increased frequency of vivid dreaming, all concerning the home of my departed grandparents, which now belongs to me. I was either cleaning by sweeping floor or discussing with workers on how to proceed with the renovation I was clearly in charge. The action which I recall in detail was talking to two gardeners which were removing weeds in regards to the swings I would like to have in the garden. You will probably notice the presence of a swing in Veronica’s art room presentation following the discourse.

As you could be aware of, the significance of a house symbol appearing in dreams relates to our Mind, Body and Soul, the house of our Spirit, and it is no wonder how important taking this class was for my spiritual ascension. The mere fact of beautifying a person’s surroundings, his home, the most intimate comfort zone, is the equivalent of weeding the garden of his Soul, paiting the walls of his Spirit with Grace and decluttering his Mind of the burden of negative thoughts.

For a person like myself, dedicated to bringing Comfort, Joy and Beauty everywhere I go, this spiritual interpretation I have enhanced Interior Design with is spectacular. When we are talking about an awake, spiritual person holding the Power of Creation over his Universe, on a material level, this translates into designing and decorating his own home. I am sure you follow me, therefore I will start the Royal Endeavors adventure by making the presentations and introducing my work.

My beloved audience,

Welcome to the last fashion editorial of 2k18 – a super special anniversary edition which marks the splendid delivery of 60 Princessa Petra Registered Style Statements along the 2 years+ rich content creation experience. 

In spite of having postponed this one for ages (actually, by “ages” I mean less than a month, as it was scheduled to enchant your pretty little eyes on the 1st of December – Romania’s Great Union Day), I am now experiencing the wonderful blessings of Angel Number 60, which is a message from angels stability and harmony will reign in my life as long as I put all my trust in Divine Source. 
Angel Number 60 is a reminder that all supply comes from the Universe, including the material one. It is about time my spiritual wealth and intelligence would manifest itself into the material world. 

Since my Faith is stronger than ever, I will exclusively dedicate this anniversary edition to the communication with the Divine Source and its elaborate interpretation, as well as the abundance of prophetic symbols and signs enhancing my fascinating (dream) world. 

Meanwhile, please note my splendid traditional blouse is hand-sewed and embelished by my great grandmother therefore it is a legacy of unestimable worth.
It also seems to possess magical powers since everytime I wear it I feel protected and shielded as if I was wearing an energetic armour. You’ll probably see it further in my 2k19 style editorials – I am planning to revive all immortal art pieces I own.

Hello, darlings! 🧁🧁🧁

I am not sure if you know but I have taken some time off to restore and fortify my energy and optimize my mindset after a major chapter from my Book of Life had ended on the 31st of August. It took a lot of courage and a leap of faith to depart from a comfort zone no longer motivating me to search for the next adventure to put my skills and talents at the great use of the Universe and Mankind. 

I am very glad I have received powerful visions through vivid dreams and mysterious symbols during my sleep only my mind knows how to decode. It appears I am ready to start writing the next big chapter of my life, which I sense it is going to be more serious in terms of responsibilities and a lot more sparkling than the previous one. Why? Because I am fully equipped with a greater vision than before, a refined set of skills and talents which are unique in the world, as they pertain to me only as an individual, having life changing experiences, a broaden perspective on life and seeing situations from a much tolerant and compassionate point of view, deeply rooted in positivity and enthusiasm, based on the laws of the Universe I respect and follow and more lessons learnt than anyone I know.

#PrincessaPetra x #MercuryRetrograde @ #LuigiCazzavillan Park

Hello, darlings! 💜

Have no fear, Mercury retrograde is here and there is a perfectly reasonable explanation for my intent of delivering this superb editorial masterpiece during the most controversial astral setting a lot of people I know are terrified of.

What does Mercury Retrograde mean afterall? Well after I spent 30 minutes, let’s make it 45, so basically almost an hour on its first retrograde day exploring the depth of modern days astrology and its impact on human behaviour through my psychological perspective in accordance with ancient wisdom, always furbishing my mad skills in written English through a designated Facebook post, some hours later I noticed the text was gone!!! Not all, just the most important part and punctuation, making me look kind of sloppy, possibly tired, which of course I am not. 

The truth is, my overthinking process feeds on tiny little details I must take charge of and my inclination to perfectionism rarely allows my conscience to sleep on a job half-done. 

Mercury rules communication, of course – you must have already sensed I am a Gemini somehow (if not, it’s stated all over social media – I praise my zodiac membership – that’s all you need to know) from my brilliant self-confidence, charming intelligence and constantly bathing in the after glow of showing myself off (I’ve always been cool, you know) – and more importantly, the technological means of communication, such as social media, a tiny little detail which is obviously out of my control.
