If July 16th was your most anticipated date this year, then you probably enjoy Game of Thrones as much as I do. And how about that Ed Sheeran cameo?! I wasn’t a fan when the series first premiered, and I knew nothing about the books. Then, one day, completely by happenstance, I watched an episode. It was one of those, nothing else is on and this doesn’t look horrible choices that completely changed my life. Well, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but it surely gave me something to look forward to on Sunday nights.I’m not sure if it’s my devoted fandom or my travel bug, but I’m always dreaming of visiting the places the scenes are filmed. Tell me you’ve never dreamt of a Westeros vacay! Now, what if I told you it was possible to stand where Jon Snow and Arya Stark have stood? All without the threat of Daenerys’ dragons!
