The Dark Hedges is a place!
I try to do as much research as I can when I travel, but I am never as good as I think I am. For whatever reason, I had no idea our tour was stopping at the Dark Hedges. Yes, it is place in North Ireland and even more so, a big tourist area for all of us Game of Throne Fans.
Again with a tour, there is not a lot of time to stop and smell the roses, but lucky the rain stopped and I was able to walk down the King’s Road.
It was so cool walking down the road thinking how one of all-time favorite shows filmed right where I was standing.
We had such little time to “stop and smell the roses”, so I snapped as many photos as I could and with the threat of rain always near, I had to hurry.
We were back at the bus in no time and off we headed to Belfast to the main event!
The Game of Thrones Exhibition!!!
Below is my little video of pictures I took during the tour. Please keep in mind, I am not a professional as you can see, so forgive the crude video. I also had less than two hours to walk through the exhibition and get back onto the bus and we could not use flash, hence the blue background in most if not all photos.
I have to say I was star struck and the actual stars were not even there! OMG. I am so so so happy that I went to this exhibition. It helped me have a bit of closure for the fact the GOT is not returning on HBO. UGGGGGG…
After leaving within the two hours, honestly I could have stayed for like five hours, we headed into Belfast for a quick walk around and I had time for a bite to eat. I stopped at The National. Lucky for me our tour bus was right outside and so I enjoyed, took my time and even had two pints!!!
The drive home was not too bad, I did sleep most of the way, the beer was making me feel just fine. I had on warm clothes and the heat, so that coupled with beer and a full belly was nap time for Nana!
If you get the chance to see Belfast, DO IT. Remember they use pounds, not Euro. They are part of the UK but on the isle of Ireland. Lots of history here and I can’t wait to come back.
