Posted by & filed under HTML + CSS.

A new Game of Thrones inspired Easter egg has been discovered on Google Maps. If you are planning on traveling from Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, to Brecon Beacons in South Wales you’re given an extra option to travel by dragon.

Is a dragon your preferred choice to travel? It can clear 122 miles in 20 minutes! Unfortunately, we’re not all granted the privelege of dragon travel. Considering the amount of time necessary for Daenerys Targaryen’s army to take King’s Landing, these dragons are only available in Wales.

Perhaps Wales was chosen due to United Kingdom’s resemblance to Westeros or it could even be for the fact that the Welsh flag is branded with a fiery dragon. Regardless, Google has dropped many fun Easter eggs into Google Maps over the years that point to pop culture references and popular fantasy series. We featured a few in our 10 Awesome Internet Easter Eggs such as a tour of the TARDIS and has also attempted to help Lord of the Rings fans with directions to Mordor.

Zachary Levi and Sesame Street‘s Bert have figured out there’s more to do than just sitting indoors behind a digital device. They share their mutual love of pigeons and the outdoors in this kitschy tune that promotes unplugging yourself and spending a lovely, sunny day in the park.

The pigeons make it feel like home
Follow me and we can roam
Across the grass and see
That now we’re running faster than 4G!
