ocean liner queen mary 2 visited the port of hamburg today. at the maritime museum we had the special honor of being visited by stephen payne ( @navalarch2
) , the naval architect who designed the ship. he came aboard the qm 2, where he is currently giving lectures to the passengers, and spent some hours in our exhibition. it was a pleasure to give him a tour in which we probably learned more than he did. since stephen payne is an advocate for maritime education, we hope we will manage to work with him in the future.
we ended the tour at our model of the qm 2 built in a scale of 1:50 using only @lego
bricks, and couldn't resist the temptation of asking him to pose beside it. the real qm 2 is leaving hamburg this evening, but this one is permanently stationed on deck 1 of the museum.
