I would really like to go transatlantic.

I’ve been around the world a couple of times on cruise ships. Separate cruises...not a world cruise as such. Maybe one day.

Seen the movies but not read the books. My wife was a huge fan. Had to have the books when they came out.

A who's who of British actors.

Never read Shakespeare. I did see Henry V but that was only to curry favour with a girl.
It didn't work

I'm with you on the snake ..

What about the original Titanic movie? I remember watching it when I was young on Sunday afternoon film time.

You should have gone with a tragedy, rather than one of the history plays. They're more impressive.

I quite like snakes, as long as they aren't poisonous.

I fell asleep during the Titanic film. The newer one that is.

I've never been on a long-haul flight and not farted at least once. Must be something about hours and hours and bloody hours in the air, as I'm not usually a Ms Farty Pants.

Glad you asked, aren't you Bristol?

In my early travels through South-East Asia I always yielded to the urging of snake 'attractions', where for a small donation you can have a whopping great snake wound around your neck. In my more mature years I either ignore them, or drop a bit of money into their hand and say no thanks to the snake. Well I say no thanks to the person handling the snake, I don't actually talk to the snake.

Aw. My Mum and a snake. She was rather given no choice and was not charged any money. Those people treated her with such respect even if they did wonder if she actually had legs. Mum was just 54 yrs old there. I made her skirts for that trip so she would be comfy. Bluddy well loathe sewing.
