First of all I want to say Thank you to all those who left motivating comments on the last post. If you did not comment just have a look and help me improve and write a blog you can enjoy! One suggestion was to write in German again. The reason I stopped that was just that the posts were going incredible long and who wants to read pages!
One of the reasons to go to Belfast was the Titanic. My son learned about it in third class and not only the filmindustry finds it faszinating. We had already our tickets booked and to get the most out of it we chose to take a tour. The Titanic building in the back is build in the old docks where this ship really was build. On the right there are still the old office buildings and if I remember it right it is only one that is still in use. We were able to have a look in one of the former drawing rooms and offices but unfortunately the building is quite in bad state.

Behind the exhibition building are the docks. Actually they are not docks any more but there are wooden sticks that show where the Titanic and the Olympic were build. The rail tracks are still there. On the side of the Titanic the deck is drawn on the ground to get a feeling how huge this ship has been. On the side of the Olympic stripes of gras and timber give an impression how many people of each class including the workers died.
Weiter ging es dann im Gebäude. Unmengen and Austellungsstücken und Videos befinden sich auf den drei Stockwerken. Es gibt viel zu lernen, aber die Geschichte der Titanic ist im Grunde einfach nur traurig. Es ist schwer all die Eindrücke aufzunehmen. Der Besuch der Titanic ist mit so vielen Kleinigkeiten zu einem Erlebnis geworden.
Our last stop was in the building with the exhibition. There are so many pieces to be seen, videos to be watched, games to be played that we have been absolutely exhaustet at the end. There is so much so learn and so many impressions that it is really hard to get it all in. The history of the Titanic is so sad but it is an adventure walking around on those grounds. There are so many details put in the building and around!

The rest of the day we were walking around in beautiful sunshine and did a little shopping. We were so lucky and it was even warm. At the end of the day we were happy to fall into bed.
