Dubrovnik, Croatia

GoT Exhibition London 9-12 Feb

I know that haven’t posted much in a while now, but I have a good excuse – I was turned into wight by a White Walker (and I have a picture to prove this!). This didn’t happen beyond the Wall, but in London where I attended the “The Game of Thrones” Exhibition show at O2 organized by Sky Atlantic.

wight tour guideApart from being one of few lucky fans that were able to get to the exhibition on the first day, I also had time to visit the Hampton courts, Oxford and Bath and try out few amazing thematic tours (Harry Potter Tour and Jack the Ripper Tour).

The exhibition has truly exceeded my expectations. Aside from being turned into wight and seeing the original costumes and props from the show (some of them for second time as I managed to glance at them while the HBO was filming in Dubrovnik!) I was also able to try out the Iron Throne again (this time in Night’s Watch outfit), hold the Mountain’s sword, pose with Ned&Margaery’s doubles and was eventually burned by the dragon fire! However the most amazing part was the opportunity to ascend the Wall thanks to Oculus Rift! This 360-degree 3D experience lasted one minute only, but it almost made me join the Night’s Watch (in spite to their celibacy wove).

I also had a chance to chat with other lucky fans from all over the UK and have also met a lovely couple who toured King’s Landing with me in last September!

I would like to thank my friend Dave for inviting me to join him as the exhibition was exclusive for Sky Atlantic subscribers and one guest of their choosing. It took him whole morning of 26 Jan to reserve these precious tickets as the site kept on crashing due to increased traffic. I owe you a big one, mate!

Win-win!

My wife and I took a tour with Tomislav back in 2013 and had a great time. As a die hard GoT and history nerd, I really appreciated how much he knew about the show, and Dubrovnik itself. My wife (whose not a huge GoT or history fan) also enjoyed the tour, mostly because Tomislav is an awesome guide and nice guy…so win win!
