I try to be a person who is representing destinations in a positive way because there is absolutely a correlation between places being popular on Instagram and then suffering negative effects of over-tourism. There doesnโ€™t seem to be enough concern about that reality as a whole and all too often (i.e. weekly if not daily) I get press releases about places that are โ€œInstagrammableโ€ while nothing at all about the food, culture or people is even hinted at. . While I try to be different, and still have a long way to go, most of the work trips I go on create a situation where itโ€™s too difficult to get anything more โ€œthat photoโ€ and the barest idea of the value of a place, never mind enough time to talk to people in depth. And since Iโ€™m so often in a position where work travel is all I have & thereโ€™s no budget to go on the kind of trips I would personally value and learn from, the cycle continues. Still Iโ€™ll always prioritize trying to encourage responsible tourism in my own life and in others. . So it was with The Dark Hedges which I did love seeing in person because it truly is a beautiful road; but which I only saw, and learned nothing about. I struggled with whether or not to even post about it just like I struggled earlier this year with whether or not to post about the poppies in California. . I decided to publish these photos I guess so that I could ask that if you are going to visit when youโ€™re in Northern Ireland - please take the time to do more than just get a photo. Please meet some locals, spend some money in the local businesses. Be respectful. Follow the parking signs and take the time to do the whole walk. Donโ€™t damage the natural habitat of these gorgeous trees. Enough of them have died already because this spot became so well known by people who were irresponsible visitors. Be part of the change we need so the places weโ€™ve come to love will survive & thrive. Letโ€™s work to ensure travel is something which changes us for the better not just gives us pretty photos ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผโค๏ธ . . . #loveireland#discoverni#northernireland#thedarkhedges#wheregotstarted#gameofthrones#thisissustainable#sonyalphafemale

Ireland is just as green and beautiful as you might have heard. I can assure you of that now that Iโ€™ve finally been outside of Dublin. That was the only place Iโ€™d been until these last two weeks, which kept me so busy for such long days gathering content to do a series on @stellerstories that I gave up trying to keep up with posting live. I knew Iโ€™d never be able to be present on the ground while being hosted for work and also be present with you, my community โ€” and do both well, with the hours we were keeping. Now Iโ€™m trying to finish my series for Steller in their new Beta version which will then go live along with Stories from more than 20 other creatives. We all spread out across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland to bring you a Digital Day in the Life which will go live later this month. This photo was taken during one of the most special days to me where we flew over the stunning coastline of Northern Ireland checking out where much of #GameOfThrones was filmed from sand dunes that double as Dorne to rock faces that were the foundation of Dragonstone. Tourism Northern Ireland were kind enough to arrange for @cuttingedgeheli & @bushmillsinn to host Wyatt, Dave (see tags for their profiles) and myself as a surprise that ended up being a 45 minute ride I will truly never forget. One you can take too. Just check out their accounts to book! And stay tuned for much more... . . . #bestofireland#discoverni#loveireland#northernireland#whereGOTstarted#visitnorthernireland#aerialphotography#cuttingedgeheli#stellerstories

Weโ€™ve visited a handful of #GameofThrones locations on this trip, but today we kicked it to a new level. Took a tour of Winterfell, got decked out in GOT attire (Amy even got to wear part of Branโ€™s actual costume), and practiced archery in the same spot they filmed during S1. So awesome. Plus, we met Summer & Grey Wind, two of the @got_direwolves used on the show. (Real names: Odin and Thor.) Thereโ€™s so much else that wonโ€™t fit in a caption.

"Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory." I may have joined the nights watch tonight (even though technically women are not allowed) but I'm glad I'm not guarding the wall as my combat skills need a lot of work!! Check out my instastory, I had a fantastic day @ntcastleward visiting the home of the Stark family and reliving some of my favourite scenes. If you are big #GOT fan and would like to do the same your in luck next month the @nationaltrustni have organised #winterfellfestival. It will happen on Sunday 16th September. I will post full details on my blog this week but if you can't wait that long check out nationaltrust.org.uk/Winterfell. PS I was trying to keep a straight face (a serious nights watch face) while taking the first pic but @belfasttimes made me laugh and look at the concentration on my face in pic 2. #winterfell#GOT#nightswatch#castleward#houseofstark#thetwins#redwedding#audleyscastle#westeros#whereGOTstarted#niblogger

Guess the scenes... These are for the hardcore GOT lovers... Season one, episode one... some of the key scenes involving direwolves and the first White Walker attack were filmed at these locations... The GOT crew spent 10 weeks covering these areas in a membrane and then placing paper snow on them to give it the feel of the 'North'. And the shoot took place over a period of just three days... The final image is the promenade which was supposed to be a part of GOT but then they found its replacement in the Dark Hedges... . . . . . #wheregotstarted#got#got7#gotbehindthescenes#gotlocation#winterfell#housestark#lannisters#targaryen#nedstark#direwolves#gotdirewolves#jonsnowandghost#danaerys#motherofdragons#darkhedges#ongooglemaps#northernireland#discoverni#explore#behindthescenes#filminglocation#gotsecrets#cerseilannister#tyrionlannister#westeros#housetargaryen#houselannister#shotoniphone7plus
