I love Titanic. Not the movie (although that did fuel me on even more) The Ship. The grandest ship in the world in 1912.
I don’t know what it is, it just fascinates me. This huge liner, biggest one ever built that crashes into an iceberg on its maiden voyage, and takes 1500 people to their grave in 2 hours and 40 minutes.
I have watched countless documentaries, some more than once just to see a glimpse of the ship.
If you are as obsessed as i am, then you should take a trip to Belfast to see the Titanic Exhibition. It is the greatest thing ever. You are in the exact place, The Harland and Wolff shipyard, that the ship was built along with her 2 sisters, the Olympic (who came first) and Britannic (who came last).
We did the exhibit tour and also a walking tour where a guide takes you round before the main exhibit and talks you through a bit of the history. After that we went over to the Nomadic, the very last White Star Line ship in the world, which has been fantastically restored.
I can’t recommend it enough if you love history and Titanic then it really is for you!
There is too many photos to share, it was a life long dream for me to go and i loved it. I would go back in a second, my boyfriend does not share my enthusiasm though.
Do you have any Titanic questions? I would love to answer them, make me feel like the Titanic historian i always wanted to be!
