Google Maps Offers “Dragon” Transport Easter Egg
June 5th, 2014
If you want Google Maps to give you directions from Snowdon to Brecon Beacons in Wales, it will estimate travel times by car, bus, foot, plane, bicycle, and now by dragon. Obviously we want to go by dragon. So selecting dragon, Google Maps gives you an estimated travel time of 21 minutes. You see why you go dragon? Fastest mode of travel ever.
Google Maps also shows a dragon icon which is very similar to the one on the Welsh flag. But sadly, this appears to be the only route that allows dragon travel. Maybe they have trouble feeding them along the way.
They don’t make it easy for Daenerys Targaryen to get around. We need more dragon routes. For now, we’ll have to take get around Westeros and Essos another way.
