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.

Royal Endeavors – Comillas

Processed with VSCO with g8 preset

Ladies and gentlemen,

As the Royal Endeavors travel adventures in Basque Country appear to be slowly coming to an end, I would like to welcome you to this very special edition, exclusively dedicated to the lovely coastal town hosting our 7 nights residence – the wonderful Comillas, one of the most beautiful towns in Cantabria, located at about 50km west of Santander, elegantly highlighted by its cobbled streets, open squares, picturesque beaches, historic buildings and a fine selection of Modernista residences, including the incredible El Capricho summer vila designed by Antoni Gaudí.

If you are wondering about the unusual Catalan Modernism touch of the town as compared to its surroundings, that is due to the emigrants who came back from America with a different architectural vision. Amongst these was the future Marquis of Comillas, who was rewarded this title for his valuable support in the Cuban conflict. He comissioned the majestic Neo-Gothic Sobrellano Palace, where you can admire Gaudí furniture as well, and its chapel – is now the Museum of the Marquises. Moreover, his son build the Pontifical University, which he offered to the pope, gaining the pontifical title in return.

We will start our short tour by introducing the mesmerizing El Capricho, the 19th-century Gaudí-designed chalet with its Mudejar-style tower covered in sunflower tiles, that became the centre of my interest as soon as we could enjoy some spare time to invest in local sightseeing. Don’t get me wrong but each day was dedicated to an organized visit to the representative cities of Basque City therefore leisure time to explore Comillas was rather short. The truth is we couldn’t have had a better residence than this lovely little town with its fascinating tourist attractions – so many architectural masterpieces concentrated in such a symbolic place!

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.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Bine v-am regasit! Welcome! Bienvenido! Bienvenue! Willkommen! to my latest Royal Endeavors exclusive travel episode dedicated to the lovely seaside resort of Donostia – San Sebastián in Basque Country, a lively slice of Heaven touched by the Sun God that promises to bless you with breathtaking landscapes and incredible heights and sights. I truly hope this article will inspire you to grace the divine SanSe with your presence wholeheartedly, as its positive, uplifting energy had a wonderful effect on my mood and general state of well-being, possibly due to the excellent weather conditions which made all these fabulous pictures possible. If you ask the locals, you will be truly suprised by the fact the weather is not this friendly all the time, therefore I consider us truly blessed to have had such a wonderful experience.

Second of all, since I absolutely love my mood shining through these pics, I would like to dedicate some kind words of appreciation to the All Mighty Universe for the major global events which happened during this passed Gemini season, which made an extraordinary difference, and to show my grattitude for the positive changes I noticed since my 33rd birthday.

You will not believe the feeling of easiness, flow and relief I have since I celebrated my rebirth into Christ Consciousness, the symbolic age of the ascension of Christ into the presence of God in Heaven.

Royal Endeavors – Biarritz

Processed with VSCO with g8 preset
#PrincessaPetra x #Biarritz #GloryToTheHoly #Proph3ticJustice

My dear audience,

I am pleased to delight you with a freshly pressed spectacular Royal Endeavors traveling episode, this time dedicated to Biarritz, a fancy coastal city located on the Bay of Biscay (Atlantic coast), which lies south-west to France, in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department of the Aquitaine territory, a few miles from the border of Spain. Considering I only spent a few hours enjoying this seaside marvel, I will keep my words witty and my speech rather short this time, yet rich in details, as always.

My visit to Biarritz was part of a designated day trip including San Sebastian, which will be the main subject of a separate blog post shortly, given the totally different moods and weather conditions we experienced on the same day. While Biarritz was moody, cloudy, cold and therefore probably gave a false impression of stiffness, San Sebastian was bathing in the warmth of the ever glowing spring sun, making all my lovely panoramic pics possible, sprinkling joy over my pretty face. I cannot wait to share my marvelous experience with you, darlings, but meanwhile, let’s dig a few facts about Biarritz.

Off the record, the now fashionable former fishing village made famous after 1854 by Napoleon III and his Spanish empress is a bit overrated for my taste but still elegant, in the discreet, old money, French kind of way, at the opposite pole of show-off.

Visited by Queen Victoria, Edward VII, and Alfonso XIII of Spain, Biarritz began to call itself “the queen of resorts and the resort of kings.” Now being a surfing attraction definitely allows a fresh air of salty exuberance and charming youth to wrap carelessly around the contrasting valances pondered by the classy boutiques, fancy restaurants and high quality chocolate shops which I definitely recommend.
