A journey on the Trans Siberian Railway is often hailed as the trip of a lifetime, mostly because the 6,152 mile route between Moscow and Vladivostok is believed to be the longest you can take on just one train.

But if you want to visit the real-life King’s Landing, be wary, because every other Game of Thrones fan has had the same idea. Insane overcrowding has led the city of Dubrovnik, Croatia, to crack down on the number of tourists who can visit the area Cersei Lannister calls home.
According to the Telegraph, Dubrovnik Mayor Mato Franković is set to cap the number of people who can visit each day at just 4,000, which is half of UNESCO's recommendation. That’s because the pedestrian-only medieval section gets overcrowded with visitors.
This August 21, Americans will experience the first total solar eclipse since 1979 to touch the lower 48. But unless you're in the path of totality, you'll only see a partial eclipse, an experience compared to standing next to the grill and only smelling the steak instead of tasting it for real.
