A trip to Westeros
My body started to feel light and remote while I was being completely surrounded by the music and I started to go up in the sky, leaving the Earth behind me. Strangely, instead of going back to the Blue Planet I decided somehow to keep looking for something else. I didn't even know what I was seeking... But when I saw it, I knew that I could stop searching. It was right in front of my eyes, its name remains unknown, but we can call it “The World of Game of Thrones”. I was stunned. Even though I haven't read the books, Game of Thrones is my favourite TV series, and I was about to enter Westeros, its main continent. In my descent I could see a lot of cities (King's Landing, Lannisport, The Eyrie, Casterly Rock...) but something in the distance caught my attention. Could it be? Yes, it was! I rapidly recognised the shape of Winterfell and I headed right to it. When I was just above a blind alley I let my body touch the floor really gently and, after making sure that nobody had seen me, I silently slipped through the crowd that was going to the square. Once I arrived there, the beauty of the atmosphere left me astonished. Some kids were playing, the minstrels were singing songs like The Rains of Castamere and a lot of people were talking to each other and buying things at the market, while Jon Snow and his brothers were practising their archery skills in a corner. But I couldn't just stay still and look around, I had to speak with somebody. I managed to convince Maester Luwin that I was a scholar sent from King's Landing (the capital) to collect information about the North, and he agreed to let me ask some questions to Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell. I won't write down the entire conversation, as it would take too much time and space, but here is the most important information that he gave me: << Winterfell is, and has always been, a huge castle complex surrounded by walls. In the past, people built it this way to protect themselves from the dangers that come from the other side of the Wall, such as the Others and the wildlings. People, as always, use to work as blacksmiths, merchants, farmers and so on. It hasn't changed much over the years. You still have to use a carriage if you want to get here, as they used to do one hundred years ago. But keep in mind: Winter is coming... And the North remembers. >> Surprised by his last words, I started to perceive my body again. It felt like somebody was slowly weaving threads that tied me to reality. I was forced to open my eyes by the school bell and while I was packing my things I wished that I could repeat that experience again.
