Last week we had a 2 night vacation in Liverpool without the kids, which was really delightful. One of the highlights is a trip we took on the Yellow Duckmarine. As we got off, we were told 'If you liked it tell everyone, and if you didn't don't bother,' and i immediately thought of sharing on Dooyoo. What is a Yellow Duckmarine?

This year was my 40th Birthday, and my family were thinking what to buy me.

I honestly think this bus/boat is the funniest looking think I've ever seen. When I first came to Liverpool I decided to go sightseeing to get my barings, and immediately came across this little beauty! It's a big yellow bus, which doubles as a boat, and is cleverly titled the 'yellow duckmarine' (in homage to the beatles' 'yellow submarine', geddit?). Seeing this thing trundling around the streets of Liverpool is funny enough, but actually being on it...so, so funny! The tour starts on the Albert Docks, a beautiful area of Liverpool, and proceeds to visit many of the beautiful landmarks in Liverpool, such as the Museum of Liverpool Life, the Tate gallery, and ...
