It was just a quick visit to the cottage as we had booked tickets to the Titanic Exhibition in Skellefteå. This is an Exhibition which show real artefacts that have been on-board either Titanic or its sister ships Olympic or Britannia and the story behind them.
They also tell more unknown stories about individuals onboard Titanic. The life before, onboard and after (if they survived.)
It was a lot of stories about Swedes that were onboard Titanic's maiden voyage. There were around 123 Swedes onboard and 89 of them died in the disaster. This Exhibition really made everything feel more real.
We also saw the real 'Heart of the Ocean' even if the story surrounding the real neckless was not the same as the made up one in the movie, it did not even have the same name. It is called 'The love of the Sea'. The neckless was owned by a woman called Kate Phillips. She and her 'boyfriend' who was 20 years older than her (she was only 19 years old) decided to run away together to America. He wanted to start a new life with his new found love and left his wife and daughter behind.
Kate survived the disaster but Morley sadly passed away during the tragic event.
