Weekend in black and white, or where Richard the Lionheart meets an iron throne in Qarth

Absolutely beautiful island, with a rich history...Lokrum Island, just 600 meters from Dubrovnik, Dalmatia, Croatia. Yesterday.
According to the legent, King Richard was shipwrecked here in 1192. There is also something of an insane queen, the emperor of Mexico, and lots of peacocks and dangerous rabbits. Read on, here.
Incidentally, for the lovers of such things, the city of Qarth stood here. You know, the one from Game of Thrones. Haven't seen a single episode, but I have a photo of te iron throne.
I read the books though!!!
Anyway, it's the weekend, and it's black and white.

Excellent image (and information.) I have the Game of Thrones books, but so far I've only found time to read the first. One day...
