Wonderful people I greet you!
I’ll just cut to the chase right away, I ****ing love Game of thrones like millions of others. I don’t only watch it because of the wonderful interesting plot, but also for the beautiful scenery and locations used. So obviously many of these places have deserved a spot on my neverending bucket list!
Pictures are all courtesy of Discover Northern Ireland it’s a bucket list item so I haven’t had the chance to witness it yet!
Kings’ road, The dark hedges, Ballomoney Northern Ireland
Planted in 1775 to impress the visitors of James Stuart and his family then Residence of the gracehill mansion respectfully named after his wife Grace Lynd the Avenue of beech trees hasn’t failed to amaze their visitors and many others centuries after the Dark Hedges are one of the most photographed natural phenomena in Northern Ireland it’s not a surprise why there makers of Game of Thrones decided to use path as the kings road in season two.
The mansion is nowadays a private residential area but the trees are always open and free to the public though many locals would advise you to leave before nightfall at least if you wish not to be haunted by the Grey Lady Who glides along the road and Vanishes after passing the last beech tree some think that she is a maid who has died in strange mysterious circumstances others think that she’s the lost soul of an abandoned graveyard nearby and the rest of the people just want it to be an urban legend.
I just really want it to be an urban legend, because I’ve watched+enjoyed to many horror stories and we all know that those movies work out for no one but the entity who can live in peace, because everyone is killed. Also I’ve seen too much freaky shit in game of thrones, that mentally crushed me already. This would just be extra extra for nothing.
Well I’ve said everything could find about the dark hedges, I wanted to find some back stories about the creepy ghost lady. But I also want to sleep tonight and tomorrow night and the night after tomorrow night. So I decided to leave it up to you. In a movie you can tell yourself, girl this is just a movie, but in real life it becomes more real. Okay, I’m not making sense anymore.
Love you guys, bye.
Comment, like, share and follow, and I wish you a wayfaring and outcastic life.
QUESTION: what‘s your favourite urban legend, I decided that I don’t need sleep during the night. I’ll just count sheeps in the afternoon!
Always free and always open.
