Yesterday was such a fun day! I decided to spluge on this trip by booking a Game of Thrones tour north of Bardelona, in Girona, and it was such a good way to get out of my shell and hang out with other nerds. The Medeivel town of Girona is like 2,000 years old so it’s pretty incredible in its own rite, but Season 6 of Game of Thrones was also filmed there and so there’s this whole other dimension of awesome in the city.
Asking random strangers to take pics of me. As one does.
This building was used to stage the big bang that Cersei may or may not have done.
These Arabic baths were so beautiful but the bath house was also so cold. The last thing I’d be thinking about here would have been bath time.
In addition to movie locations we also got to see some real castle ruins that were 1500 years old!
True talent is that this picture was taken by a dad who was balancing one kid on his shoulders while his five year old daughter told him how to take the picture. Shoutout to R. Riveter for my new favorite travel bag!
This is our tour guide. He didn’t actually love Game of Thrones but he loved history and architecture so that made up for it. These are the stairs blind Arya sat on.
Hanging out with my Otto bag and enjoying my golden hand. #kingslayer
This popsicle was actually gross, but the cool thing was that it turned your lips metallic gold as you ate it!
In a way im going to count this as my Thanksgiving. I got to eat tapas and traditional Catalonian food with 20 strangers next to the Mediterranean Sea!
And speaking of the sea. There she is!
Tomorrow I’ll be doing a walking tour around Barcelona so that should be fun! Then tomorrow I’m off to Morocco!
