Hollywood star Jason Momoa has reminisced about a road trip he took around Ireland in search of "the greatest pint of Guinness" during a break from filming Game of Thrones, saying he remembers "so many wonderful people and stories."

The Aquaman actor posted a throwback photo on his Instagram showing himself smiling, wrapped up in blankets on air mattresses in the back of a van.

Momoa explained that the photo was taken during a break from filming his role as Khal Drogo in the first season of the HBO fantasy epic Game of Thrones in 2011, and that he and best friend Brian Andrew Mendoza had been "too broke" to fly home to the US so instead decided to drive around Ireland.

He wrote: "So homesick. Looking through my phone I found this. Off the road some quiet parking lot in Donegal. It was an amazing simple moment with my best friend @captainriff.

"While filming GOT we had a lil break We were to broke to fly home so we rented a panel van aka UHAUL in Belfast and drove around beautiful amazing IRELAND searching for the greatest pint of Guinness.

"Turns out it's perfect everywhere. So many wonderful people and stories I treasure those times It was the simplest moments I remember the most."

He added: "I still miss my family. Been a long road and I feel like I'm just getting started. (sic)"
