7 Game of Thrones Sites to See in Dubrovnik

If you can’t get enough Game of Thrones, you’ll love seeing the show sites in real life. The best place to visit for this kind of tourism is Dubrovnik, as it’s full of filming locations. True fans will get a kick out of exploring this Croatian city based on the T.V show. So, to help you out, we’ve compiled a list of 7 Game of Thrones sites to see while in Dubrovnik.

Fort Lovrijenac

 

Fans will recognize this site pretty quickly as the Red Keep in King’s Landing. Seasons two and three are where this ancient fort appears most frequently. Remember the scene when Tyrion slaps King Joffrey across the face after attacking him at Pile Gate? This fort is where the king is trying to get to. It is also the site of King Joffrey’s naming ceremony where they have a celebratory ceremony during season two. You’ll also recognize it from season three’s first episode when Bronn asks for his pay to be doubled by Tyrion.

Gradac Park

This park can be found right next to Dubrovnik’s old town. It is best recognized from the second episode of season four as the scene of the Purple Wedding feast. It was here that King Joffrey was poisoned.

 

Jesuit Staircase

This staircase has played important roles across multiple seasons. It was featured in the first episode of season 5 as the meeting ground for people to pay their respects to Tywin Lannister. They are used as the steps of the Great Sept of Baelor, and also as part of Cersei’s walk of shame in season five. During filming times, the cafes and shops near these steps were shut down and paid extras were brought in by the hundreds to fill the streets.

Dubrovnik City Walls

These walls make an appearance in the show countless times. During the season three premier, Podrick, Tyrion, and Bronn are seen walking along the walls as workers are making repairs after the Battle of Blackwater. They also make an appearance in season six when Marcella’s body is being transported by ship to the King’s Landing.

Minčeta Tower

This is the highest point in the city and also a filming location for the show. You may recognize it from season two when it was used as the House of the Undying in Quarth. This is when Daenerys Targaryen is looking for her dragons that were stolen, and scans the tower looking for the entrance in the walls.

 

Ethnographic Museum

 

This 16th century museum is known in the show as Littlefinger’s Brothel. Visitors may recognize it from season four when Oberyn Martell meets Tyrion looking to seek revenge for the death of his sister and her children. In real life, this museum features agricultural artifacts, folk costumes, and exhibits.

Hotel Belvedere

Located just outside of Dubrovnik, this abandoned hotel served as the location for the fight between The Mountain and Prince Oberyn. There’s a small amphitheater here that you’ll recognize right away if you paid attention to this thrilling scene in the finale of season four.

 

Start with this list if you want to revisit scenes from your favorite show. Dubrovnik is full of them so you’ll find even more to explore once you’ve crossed these off the list. You can book your taxi from Dubrovnik airport here.

5 Creative Ways to Save Money for Travel

Many people have the dream to travel around the world. If you want to make your dream come to you have to know how to save money. Travelling can be very expensive, especially if to want to do it often. After all, having money means having options and isn’t this what traveling is all about?

In the following, you will learn about clever ways to save money for your travel.

 

Reevaluate your living space

Of course, we all need a roof over our head. A secure and warm place to be able to develop. However, we don’t necessarily need 500m², a jacuzzi, and a guest room. If you have a free room and traveling is really your first priority, you should definitely think about getting a roommate or renting out a room on Airbnb. This way, you will be able to save 100€ to 1000€ a month depending on your approach.

 

Bring your own lunch

Bringing your own lunch to work can save you a lot of money. At least, if you don’t have a free lunch included at work, which is not often the case. However, this doesn’t mean that you will be stuck with an endless cycle of peanut-butter and jelly sandwiches. In fact, you could just cook an extra large dinner and take the leftovers to lunch the next day. If you don’t know what to cook, there are plenty of sites in the internet that can give you a little inspiration.

 

Reduce your alcohol, cigarette and coffee addiction

Coffee in the morning, beer after work or a cigarette when being stressed is indispensable for many people. But most of them are not aware of how much money they are actually spending on it. A pack of cigarettes or a six-pack might not seem like much as itself, but little things add up. For example, let’s assume that a pack of cigarettes costs 7€ (of course depending on where you live) and you smoke 1 or 2 packs a week.  This results in yearly costs of 350-700€ only for smoking! It doesn’t mean, that you have to stop at all, but cutting it down by 50% would already save you a lot of money.


Sell your stuff

This might sound more radical then it is actually meant. Of course, you don’t have to sell your favorite owners, but many people do not realize how much unnecessary things they have been gathering their whole life. For instance, it could be a basement full of old furniture or a closet that is so full of clothes, that it won’t close anymore. The solution is easy, just take a day and go through all your stuff asking yourself: “Do I really need this?” or “Am I ever going to wear this again?”. If you answer those questions honestly, I assure you, you will have a lot of things that somebody else would be happy with.

 

Earn while you’re traveling

This is actually a nice way to start faster with your travel. If you have the option to earn money on your travel, you don’t have to save quite as much. There are many ways to earn money on your trip. For example, you could have your own travel blog, be an online graphic designer, work as a translator or even work on a farm for a short period of time. Depending on which country you are traveling to, you will have many local jobs, that you could go for. Of course, your personal skills and the timeframe of your travel plays a huge role in this.

 

Most importantly, remember that saving money will not be easy. Try to keep in mind what things you actually need and what you want. Cut out your “wants” as much as possible, keeping your goal in mind: Travelling around the world.

Where in Italy?

   

Rome

If you come to Rome or Italy you must visit one of the most famous attractions in the world, the mighty Coliseum.

The ruins of this magnificent amphitheatre are one of the greatest historical relics of our time and once it would have had a capacity of over 65,000 spectators.

 Mediterranean cost

Cinque Terre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as being designated as a national park.

Over the centuries, people have carefully built terraces on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the sea. Part of its charm is the lack of visible corporate development. Paths, trains and boats connect the villages, and cars cannot reach them from the outside. The Cinque Terre area is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy

Nestled in Liguria, the ‘Five Lands’ is made up of five distinct villages that sit atop craggy cliffs overlooking the famous Italian Riviera.

The five villages include Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore, and Monterosso, and each has its own unique charms and sights.

Northeastern

Parts of Venice are renowned for the beauty of their settings, their architecture, and artwork. The lagoon and a part of the city are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Grand Canal in Venice is one of the most famous waterways in the world and there are a variety of ways that you can enjoy it.

One of these is to take a water bus known as a Vaporetto along the various parts of the canal where you can marvel at the little bridges and traditional Venetian homes that back onto the water.

Venice is also known for its several important artistic movements, especially the Renaissance period.

 North

Lake Como in Lombardy spans an amazing 146 square kilometres and is the perfect place to get out on the water and explore Italy by boat.

In 2014, The Huffington Post called it the most beautiful lake in the world for its microclimate and environment with prestigious villas and villages

The area around Lake Como has houses owned by some of the richest celebrities in the world, which tells you everything to know about the kind of views you can expect here.

The landscape surrounding the lake is covered with alpine forest and traditional villages as well as dainty ornate houses that make you feel as if you are in a picture postcard version of an Italian masterpiece.

The Vatican

 The Vatican is its own state within Italy, although you can only visit this landlocked area by first travelling to Rome.

As it is one of the most important religious spots in the world, you should definitely consider to visit it if you are the region then you. The Vatican contains powerhouses such as the Piazza San Pietro and St Peter’s Basilica.

However, You can also go and see the majesty of the Vatican Palace as well as the Sistine Chapel which features the Creation of Adam

  Sicily

If you are going to Sicily as part during your travels then your first stop needs to be the Valley of the Temples which is located in Agrigento.

Here you will find a huge archaeological complex that has some of the most intact Doric temples that were built here in the 5th century.

One of the best things about the temples here is that they overlook the town below and you can take in the stunning views as you tour the historical site.

Venice

Venice has a range of peerless attractions although perhaps the most famous of these is Saint Mark’s Basilica which sits on the famed Piazza San Marco or Saint Mark’s Square.

The basilica is the final resting place of Saint Mark the Evangelist and started life as a Byzantine church before being developed over the years.

The church is a work of art in its own right and you will find glittering mosaics and gorgeous marble decorations all over the complex as well as bas-reliefs

Southern

Pompeii is a famous city for the events that took place here in 79 AD when Mount Vesuvius erupted and covered the town in ash.

The eruption meant that Roman life was captured and frozen in time, and when the site was excavated it offered a glimpse of a bygone era.

If you visit Pompeii today you can expect a kind of open-air museum where you will find preserved houses, baths, and ancient Roman forums, all filled with the relics of the people who were living here when the eruption took place.

  Mediterranean cost – Campania

The gorgeous Amalfi Coast is one of the most scenic spots in Italy and if you want to experience as much of it as possible in the shortest amount of time then consider taking a boat trip along the shoreline.

The Amalfi Coast is a popular tourist destination for the region and Italy as a whole, attracting thousands of tourists annually. In 1997, the Amalfi Coast was listed as a UNESCO world site heritage

A number of companies offer boat rental and you can take in sights such as the towering Lattari Mountains as well as various cute coves and inlets.

Seemingly out of nowhere traditional Mediterranean villages will appear and boat tours usually come with food and drinks included so that you can snack on local produce as you take in the views.

 Bonus –  Rome

The Roman Forum is another one of Italy’s big hitter attractions and lies between the Capitoline and the Palatine hills in Rome.

The Roman Forum is a rectangular forum (plaza) surrounded by the ruins of several important ancient government buildings at the center of the city of Rome. Citizens of the ancient city referred to this space, originally as a marketplace.

This would once have been the center of the mighty Roman Empire and you can take in the beautiful complex here as well as enjoy views from the terraces all over the wider city.

Wanderdust: A Guide to the Most Germ-Ridden Items

Holidays are, undoubtedly, the best time of the year. Whether it’s a Christmas getaway, a long weekend exploring a new city, or a two week, all-inclusive, poolside break in an exotic country, it is always, always something to look forward to. But how much do we actually know about our holidays, and the places we visit – especially when it comes to how many germs we’re encountering? We are all careful to wash our hands, wipe down the surfaces with anti-bac, and carry hand sanitizer with us when we’re at home, but when we’re away we can become unwittingly trusting that the place we’re staying in – and the places we’re visiting – are squeaky clean. Is it because the idea of a professional cleaner makes us assume things are cleaner than they are? Or do we simply care less because we’re on holiday, and feeling more care-free?

Whatever the reason, the chances are you’ve been lulled into a false sense of security, so we decided to put it to the test and see just how germy each aspect of your holiday is. From the airport all the way to the beach, we thoroughly analyzed every part of the travel experience to find out the most germ-ridden places and objects you are likely to encounter while traveling. We’re afraid the results aren’t pretty.

You Will Encounter While Travelling

First things first, in order to properly assess how germ-ridden a holiday can be, we looked at a variety of different places you encounter while traveling: the airport, aeroplane, hotel room, public transport, cars, the beach, and the pool, using various sources and statistical data sets to analyse the number of bacteria found on objects in these places.

To get right down to the dirty details, the number one most germ-ridden item you will encounter while traveling is the self-check-in machines found at the airport, with some machines hosting over 1 million colony forming units per square inch (CFU). Considering the sheer volume of people that pass through an airport every hour, let alone every day/week/month/year (for instance, Heathrow has on average 8,904 people pass through the airport every hour), as well as the increase in people seeking out “do it yourself” technology in otherwise stressful situations – such as when travelling – it is unsurprising that these machines are so germy.

Surprisingly, the least germ-ridden part of your holiday is the airplane’s toilet seat, as this is something that will be cleaned constantly. It still harbors tons of pathogens though, so experts recommend lining the seat with toilet paper, so your skin doesn’t actually make contact with the seat.

Have a look below at our breakdown of bacteria across different locations you visit while traveling.

The Airport

Aeroplane germs

The worst part about going on holiday is, undoubtedly, the airport. Checking in, hanging around, dealing with screaming kids, having to find your check-in gate, it’s pretty much all awful. But wait, that whole experience is about to get worse. Because the airport is absolutely FULL of germs. Wherever you are in an airport, you name it, it’ll be germier than probably your whole house put together.

At least 10% of airport surfaces have traces of virus causing bacteria on them, which is a hefty amount when you consider you how big an airport is. Not only this but the water in water fountains that you’re encouraged to use to fill up your water bottle? Turns out toilet water would actually be cleaner, because water fountains are rarely if ever, sanitized. Which is fine, just make sure you use a towel to turn the sink on and off if you fill your bottle up in here, because the sink handles are absolutely covered in bacteria (50,000 CFU per square inch, to be exact).

The Aeroplane

Even though flying is often advertised as being cool and glamorous, the reality is far from this. The truth is, it’s uncomfortable, cramped, the temperature is never right, the lack of humidity dries out your skin and causes breakouts, and there’s always at least one person who’s got some sort of flu. All in all, it’s pretty grim. Which is why it’s not surprising that most people end up ill after flying.

Not only is the plane not cleaned between flights, but those magazines that everyone handles every trip? Only changed once a quarter when a new edition comes out. Those overhead air vents that are great for cooling you down? Excellent distributors of airborne germs. And that seatbelt you wear to keep yourself safe? The likelihood is that it’s never been cleaned.

The Hotel Room

Considering that every single time you stay at a hotel you can always spot at least one maid making the rounds, a hotel room is really not as clean as you would think. Or as clean as you would like. Case in point: fecal matter can be found on 81% of surfaces. So that’s four out of five things you touch that has fecal matter on it. Grim.

The biggest hot spots are the light switches, telephone keypads, and TV remotes because let’s face it, these are the easiest items to forget about but that clearly doesn’t mean everything else is clean. For example, sponges often carry bacteria from one room to the next, contaminating different sections of rooms, and glasses are often cleaned with cloths previously used to clean dirty surfaces and then not cleaned themselves.

Public Transport

Unless you’re lucky enough to have your hotel smack bang in the middle of everything, chances are you’ll use at least one form of public transport while traveling. Everyone knows about the germs that are present on public transport because this isn’t a new thing for germaphobes to focus in on, and one in ten people are reported to avoid public transport completely due to hygiene fears.

It turns out people are right to have these fears: the subway is often the dirtiest way of traveling around a city, with train seats over six times dirtier than toilets. And if that’s not enough to put you off, thanks to the high level of bacteria found on bus handles/poles, if the same level was found in a supermarket it would be shut down by a health inspector. Nice.

Cars

If you decide against public transport (which isn’t surprising considering that little nugget of information about how dirty public transport is), chances are you’ll be hiring a car. But be wary here too, as studies show that on average people only clean the insides of their car less than 10 times a year. That’s a long time for germs and bacteria to build up.

In fact, the dashboard of a car is said to be as dirty as a toilet seat, while a gear stick is a home to 356 different types of germs. On the bright side, the steering wheel is the cleanest part of your car – until you have to use your gear stick though, apparently.

Beach/Pool

Despite it being hammered into you when you were a kid that a pool is full of chlorine, hence why you shouldn’t drink the water (like it stopped you anyway), that doesn’t actually mean it’s clean. Did you know, for example, that if you can smell the chlorine that means the pool is actually very dirty? It’s because chlorine only emits that specific chlorine smell when it’s been activated i.e. when it’s doing its job and cleaning the water – which means the water is dirty.

As for the beach, turns out although seawater is likely to be contaminated with wastewater from sewage and other sources, there are still up to 100 times more bacteria on the sand than in the water. Plus, for those that like to play in the sand or be buried in it: you’re more likely to develop diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.
