Quality Verified Registered on April 18, 2023

Growing up around ancient sites like Avebury and White horse, and visiting them since young I have been inspired to learn about the myths, mysteries, and subtle energies. Today I find myself desiring to share what I learned and experienced. I feel this lore is both relevant and pertinent today. The story is about Dragons, Mythology and primordial lore.

I had a wonderful afternoon with Arjun! One afternoon full of surprises, joy, knowledge and discovery! The best of all the city walks I did so far. Arjun is such a great person, he gives an overall and complete explanation of historical background, and still can focus on one or two subjects with precision, really good job ! I discovered the city and learned a lot from all points of view, will come back to the places he showed me today. Thank you very much Arjun, it is a perfect afternoon!
