    "I am a die hard GoT fan as well as a nature enthusiast. GoT gives me the best of both worlds because of its' gripping plot and breathtaking landscapes. Visiting some of the settings of GoT have been a dream of mine and Thingvellir, Iceland is no exception. Nature lovers, scuba divers and sightseers alike will love this location for its views, scuba diving spots and cultural history. It's a must add to any bucket list."

    "Now this is one city in the Mid East that beckons me. And anymore that is saying a lot. The movie crew got out of there alive, so what the hell, put on my Hollywood duds and buy a ticket to antiquity! Not recommended for folks who like it cool, but if you can take the heat, join me for the adventure of a lifetime!"

    #5Sibenik, Croatia

    Sibenik, Croatia

    This Renaissance Croatian city was introduced in season 5 of Game of Thrones when it was used as a double for the city of Braavos. A curious fact is that Bravoosi are skilled sailors and swordsmen just like the people of Sibenik.

    "Sibenik, Croatia was used in the 5th season of Game of Thrones as Braavos in the series. There are many similarities and that's perhaps why it was chosen for filming- there are many good sailors and swordsmen in Sibenik in real life."

    "The Azure Window also known as the Dwejra (bay) Window is located in Malta. It was a 92 foot tall limestone natural arch on the island of Gozo in Malta. The Azure window was one of Malta's major tourist attractions. The arch, together with other natural features in the area, has appeared in a number of international films and media productions. Sadly, the arch fell into the sea in March of 2017"

    "I am huge fan of Game of Thrones and have been looking to visit sites and locations that they have used for filming. I coworker recommended the Girona Cathedral in Girona, Spain as the best location to visit to see a real location from Game of Thrones. I researched the Girona Cathedral on wikipedia and I think that I have to agree with my coworker. In fact, I am planning a trip to visit there next spring. Everything about the cathedral should make it an excellent choice to get a true Game of Thrones experience. "
