When Grandpa Was A Boy, Were There Any Dinosaurs?

Seasickness

1921: In January, D.H. Lawrence and his wife, Frieda, toured Sardinia. Lawrence described their visit in a brief, sometimes tetchy book, Sea and Sardinia. When they boarded the ferry at the end of their trip, Frieda refused to share a cabin with three Italian women since, although the sea was smooth as glass, she knew they “would all be sick simply for the fuss of it”.
