Turn on a TV show and you're instantly somewhere far beyond your messy, dark bedroom. Whether it be shopping for Manolo's with Carrie Bradshaw in New York or watching very convincing CGI dragons roam over what looks like Iceland in Game of Thrones, it will give you an itch to make the trip to far away places IRL.

Most of the time — with a good enough travel itinerary — it is totally possible to visit the sights you see on your flat screen TV (or 13-inch MacBook pro).
