Belfast and Carlingford trip
The Titanic’s story was a big catastrophe where the most luxurious transatlantic in the world, crashed into an iceberg while it was doing its first travel. Thousands of people died.
The film, however, isn’t entirely true to the real story and it focused on the history of two young people that were in different social classes, they met and fell in love during the first travel of the transatlantic on April of 1912. The last part of the film is basically the same as the true story apart from some minor details.
So we went to Belfast to learn more information about the Titanic in a museum dedicated to it. It is a six-floor building. The tour takes you through nine galleries of the museum telling you the story of the Titanic since its conception to its tragic end.
We think Belfast is a very interesting city, but the titanic museum is a little boring for teenagers but interesting for people who likes marine biology.
In the afternoon, we went to Carlingford, a small town in the north-east of Ireland. It’s surrounded by mountains to the west and sea to the east. There, you can go hiking or go for a walk in the seafront. We ate some ice creams there. We think the town it’s very classical and tipicaly Irish.
Overall, we liked a lot of the trip and we would like to do something like this again.
