Northern Ireland – Touring Game of Thrones

If you are not watching Game of Thrones on TV then switch over immediately and start watching. It is a combination of history throughout the ages with Dragons and Zombie hordes added for extra spice. This is then set against the backdrop of gorgeous countryside and scenery. It may be of surprise then to learn that most of it is filmed in Northern Ireland. We decided to take a weekend break here in part to meet up with a friend who had recently moved back and was determined to get us to come and visit. It is a short flight from London, just over 1hr and so is a great Friday night to Sunday evening weekend trip.

She had a unique little face and silver tanned coat which meant she looked unique and not like other cats. I can’t imagine she won’t be here anymore. It might seem a little emotional for a cat but she was more than that to me and I hope everyone that met her. Rest in peace Lola Puff.
