Roncesvalles, full of history and legends. You cannot be nearer of God.

Roncesvalles is a place in the Pyrenees (Spain), up in the hills, touching the clouds. The first time I was there, it was dark. I arrived at night. I slept in a typical wooden house of big roof made of slate. I was tired, outside was apparently nothing, except silent…

I dreamt: The Song of Roland, St. James Way, Monasteries, wars, distant bells ringing… How many legends around Roncesvalles!

In the morning, I opened my windows room and…What a view! It was the most beautiful landscape I have never seen, I will never see again.

I dressed quickly and I went to explore. Little paths, music of water, rain, immensity.

There is a gray church with a Virgin: Virgin of Roncesvalles. It is the first step for the pilgrims who try to start their Spanish St. James Way… Mother Nature will go with them. Cosmopolitan pilgrims who come from France, maybe from Belgium… I met German, Australian, Norwegian people. I met the whole mankind. Then, I met Lord land.

Bells ringing again, I was near the small river Urrobi, at an altitude of 900 meters, in Navarra, in the Pyrenees, about 8 kilometres from the French frontier… I felt in every place. I felt in Charlemagne times. I felt dancing with the spirits of our Neolithic White Goddess.

If you have the chance, visit Roncesvalles: You cannot be nearer of God.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
