Travel Highlights: The “Game of Thrones” Filming Locations in Real Life!

The final and epic Season 8 is just around the corner, and for those hardcore fans out there, do you know where the “Game of Thrones” series was filmed?

After doing a bit of digging, I realised that I have been to a few of the locations, especially in Croatia and Iceland. Will have to check out the rest of them soon! 😀

“Don’t fight in the north or the south. Fight every battle, everywhere, always, in your mind. Everyone is your enemy, everyone is your friend, every possible series of events is happening, all at once. Live that way, and nothing will surprise you. Everything that happens will be something that you’ve seen before.” 👑 . I think this pretty much sums up the mind-blowing plot of GoT, but it still continues to surprise me EVERY SINGLE TIME. So I am looking forward to getting my mind blown again in Season 8. 😮 . Preparation for Season 8 😂 ✔️ Read all the published books (4228 pages) several times ✔️ Watched all the shows (2370 minutes) several times ✔️ Watched every fan theory on YouTube and read every crazy idea on Reddit: Is Sam Azor Ahai? Is J or D or their kid Azor Ahai? Is Bran the Night King? Is Bran the Builder? Is Ned Stark still alive? Will hotpie win the throne? 😂 ✔️ Toured most of the filming locations around the world (Iceland, Croatia, Ireland, Italy)

Travel Highlights: Top 10 Things to do at Boracay Beach Paradise

Last month, I took a short 2 week break with some friends to Boracay Island in the Phillipines, and for those who are looking out for your next holiday destination, this could give you some good ideas! 😀

Boracay is a tropical island surrounded by stunning white sand beaches about an hour’s flight from Cebu or Manila just off the larger Philippines island of Panay.

For beach connoisseurs it competes with the best beaches of more popular destinations such as the Caribbean and the South Pacific as well as neighbouring Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. For those wanting to just lounge around and top up their tan, beach-front hotels usually have lounge chairs set up just a few steps away from the hotel entrances. The more active will appreciate water sports and activities such as sailing, wind surfing, snorkelling, diving and jet skiing. The fun in Boracay doesn’t end when the sun sets. Boracay night-life pulsates with many bars and restaurants serving food, drink and fun until dawn.

A few years back, if anyone had told me that travelling the world was just a childhood pipe dream, I would have nodded in agreement. But after learning the truth about passive income, I realised that it was the only way to break free from the rat race and accumulate wealth more quickly that I ever imagined.

Sure, there will be many skeptical people who say that this is too good to be true. I understand that this might be out of their comfort zone, and all I can say is that once you have experienced it, there is no turning back.

For those who are keen to find out my secrets of trading and generating passive income with 15 minutes a day, check out our free trading signals: http://synapsetrading.com/market-analysis-and-discussion/

Till then, stay tuned for the next holiday destination! 😀

Forex Trading | Making a Quick $800+ for AUD/USD on Holiday

While in Peru, this was one of the forex trades we were taking together, in fact the trade idea came from one of my students! Thanks! 😀

Since I was on holiday, I only took a small 0.5 lot size trade, and made a quick profit of $800+. This was done with no stress or monitoring, and I only checked the position once a day, spending about 5 minutes.
