Any more fans out there pondering how this will ultimately end?🤔 It’s a series I didn’t start watching until around Season Three, but it’s hard to recall such a roller coaster ride of a TV series, and after the first couple of episodes I have been totally hooked. My OH only arrived up to date with everything a couple of weeks ago, so I have been avoiding all spoilers for years. Perhaps best not to give too much away on here either, sure to be some who aren’t up to date with the plots and twists.

Its made big stars out of some new young acting talent, and allowed some great actors free rein to dive into characters well away from their usual chosen roles. 

Dracarys..........🔥🔥🔥😁

We are mere beginners only up to season 4 but will continue on our next trip. Had an interesting chat at an airport hotel with an Irish locations manager for the series and he described how in even one episode the shooting might switch between an Irish bog, Spain and Croatia. Utterly addictive and so much like politics everywhere and in every age (apart from the Dragons)

Ooo, I envy you. So much more to watch. That’s why I hope no one puts any spoilers on here. I think you mentioned before you had stayed close to one of the filming locations, maybe Croatia? You need to get a move on watching, I think the outcome will be all over media once last series has been on. 

One of the trees on the “King’s Road” was blown down last week in a storm. I think given the choice I would opt for some of the Croatia/Spain filming locations. I find filming locations very interesting, great how they use false walls, do away with street furniture etc.....Laycock village in Gloucestershire is like stepping back in time.

We have not seen the Croatia locations, the filming was Dubrovnik I think and we haven't got down there but will try to get into Caceres Spain again this time, last year couldn't park and a big car in medieval streets was a nightmare.Maybe park outside and walk in.
