Game of Thrones Filming Locations, Croatia & Spain

Minh and I had always heard good things about Game of Thrones and we actually attempted to watch it a couple years ago. However, we just couldn’t get through the first episode as there were so many characters, and it wasn’t captivating enough for us to continue. After that attempt we never tried...
