GAME OF THRONES IN REAL LIFE
Let me join the Game of Thrones conversation, too. I have to admit that I was so hooked to the show for season one and two then all of a sudden (for reasons I can’t remember) I just stopped watching the show. Then, I thought this season seven was going to be the last one. So, I decided to watch and yes, I got obsessed all over again (but this is not the last season!). Monday nights for seven weeks were exclusively booked for Game of Thrones.
I saw several articles about the places that we can visit to see the set of Game of Thrones. I started daydreaming and here are six of the set locations that I would love to see.
Number one on my list is Dubrovnik, Croatia. I’ve been wanting to visit this place since 2003 (pre-Game of Thrones era) when I was doing my AIESEC traineeship in Hungary and travelling around Eastern Europe when there were long weekends. I was in Split, Croatia when my friends were on their way to Dubrovnik. Unfortunately, I couldn’t join them because I needed a visa from Bosnia as we were traveling by car and to get to Dubrovnik we had to pass thru Bosnia. But one day I will check this city on my travel bucket list even if they are limiting the number of tourists now because of overcrowding.
The next three locations will require a tour around Spain:
Alcazar, Seville, Spain: The royal palace, the oldest European palace still in use.
Gaztelugatxe, Basque Country, Spain: The winding steps to the monastery on the mountaintop.
Cordoba, Spain: The Roman Bridge
I’ve always wanted to visit these next two countries, now there’s more reasons to visit!
Malta: the fortress city of Mdina
Morocco: the seaside city of Essaoiura
Like everyone else, I’m seriously thinking of what to do with my Monday nights now until the next season. I guess it’s time to watch season three to six.
