You can now travel by dragon in Wales

Who wants to drive for hours on winding Welsh roads, or take one of those tiny local stopping trains, when you could hop on the back of a dragon and make the journey between Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons in just 32 minutes?

No, the Queen of Dragons from Game of Thrones hasn't taken over Wales (although we're sure she'd approve of such public transit). Google Maps now includes some more alternative transport options.

As if the 100mph zip lines in Snowdonia weren't enough, Google Maps have added dragons to the list of travel options in Wales.

This isn't the end of it, either. In Scotland you can take a ride on the Loch Ness Monster from Fort Augustus to Urquhart Castle.

We're hoping the next updates will be directions for travel by kangaroo across the Australian desert, or magic carpet around the Arabian Peninsula. What would you like to see?
