The Titanic Hotel, Belfast

September 2, 2018

There are at least three Titanic Hotels in the UK/Ireland (and a Spa) that I know of.  The one in Belfast, Ireland is the best, by far.

It was the former Harland & Wolff drawing office, the builders of the ill fated Titanic. Therefore it has much authenticity to bear the great ships name and is opposite the slipway where Titanic was built

However my experience of the Hotel was not prefect.

The Isle Of Man

September 20, 2017

.

The ‘Isle Of Man’ is an island in the Irish Sea, between Great Britain and Ireland.

I would imaging most Brits have never been there and most will never go there. Well, they are missing out.

The Isle Of Man served by the ‘Isle of Man Steam Packet Company’ velssels, which is the oldest continuously operating passenger shipping company in the world. They celebrated their 180th anniversary in 2010.

In parts of the this charming island, time has stood still. It still has  a vintage steam railway (1875), a vintage electric railway(1900) and horse-drawn trams still serving the two mile promenade.
