[…] Southampton, United Kingdom. The town where I always think I should be adding an extra “h” when I write it. If you like to awe at cruise ships then this is the place to see them. It’s also the home of the QE2, Queen Mary 2, the names go on and on. Sometimes the weather is a bit foggy though, so you may not see much :-). But its great to head down there. It is also where you must first get to in order to visit the Isle of Wight. […]
