If you're a fan of the epic fantasy show Game of Thrones, you can now walk in the footsteps of Ned Stark and King Robert and view some of the major filming locations. Westeros and Essos come alive with a walking tour of the walled city of Dubrovnik, Croatia or Belfast, Ireland thanks to tour operator, Viator.

Dubrovnik serves as King's Landing which, if you are not a GoT fan, is the capital of the Seven Kingdoms and hosts plenty of deadly fights. It's here you will be able to climb the walls just like a medieval warrior to look out onto the bay. The three-hour tour will also visit Lovrijenac Fortress, perched on the water protecting the city from any impending danger from the Adriatic.

Where Eurovision Will Be Singing Its Heart Out in 2014

Where: Europe

Well, it's been a whole entire year since all of Europe was singing and dancing to the annual song contest, Eurovision. Last time we watched, the insanity went down in Baku, Azerbaijan and Sweden won, so this year they played hosts in the Southern city of Malmö.

The contest as a whole has held the reputation of being quite the show, a mix of both native tongue and English lyrics accompanied by flamboyant costumes and overly produced choreography. This year was no exception. While the Russian grannies from last year didn't make the cut, 2013's winner did come from another Scandinavian country; Denmark.

If you're not up on the rules, this means Eurovision heads to Copenhagen for 2014.

Cheap Flights Mean Cheap Eats with Ryanair's New Onboard Menu

Our favorite European LCC we love to hate has revamped one area where they score a few extra bucks in the air. Ryanair is now flying with an upgraded in-flight menu, meaning you may not need to "fast-food up" in the airport before boarding, thus ending the Scent of McDonald's in the cabin.

Should you choose to dine on the refreshed menu, named The Getaway Cafe, you'll find it isn't your typical snack box selection. Finally, something more than a short-stack of Pringles! The menu is chock full of "hot" and kitchen-prepared food, including ham & cheese croissant sandwiches, fresh pastries, chicken nuggets and hot soups—because there are no blankets on-board.
