So, 100 years ago today is the day that the most famous ship set sail on her maiden voyage to New York, a voyage that sadly was never completed as she famously met a watery end following a collison with an iceberg.
I am of course talking about the Titanic. A story that still fascinates thousands of people a hundred years on - me included.
The descendants of those who sailed on the ship are setting off today dressed in Elizabethan attire, retracing the steps the Titanic took. Even though they may not have known the relatives that sailed on the doomed ocean liner - most of them would have perished - it must be very haunting to set off on the same famous journey as those relatives did so long ago without any clue as to what disaster lay ahead. I have been on a Titanic experience and you do get a sense of sadness and feel the tragedy which I am sure most people can relate to, whether you had a relative on board or not. Anyone can get a sense of how frightening and upsetting that fateful night would have been.
