WEEKEND IN LOVELY LIVERPOOL (2 of 3) – Mersey Ferry & Tate Gallery



A week ago today I was in Liverpool, as I continue to share my discoveries. Liverpool stands as one of the best historical cities in the world. I have passion for History and Literature. Liverpool proved to be over-pouring with both literature and great historic traditions. To avoid boring you much with endless details, I will to stick to the Mersey Ferry & Tate Gallery in this blog, and the Museum of Liverpool & The Beatles Story in my next blog.



I was able to enjoy a fascinating waterway trip with the Mersey Ferry. This gave a deeper insight on how the canal’s construction shaped the city of Liverpool. I was imaging things too much and sometimes get to extent of likening things. When I was on board, we came across different ferries and boats all minding their own business likewise. What immediately struck my mind was the motorway. Have you ever paid much attention to different modes of transport on the motorway from heavy-duty trucks to 4x4s, the Minis and everything else in between? I saw the sea operating exactly the same way only that we weren’t on the road. I managed to capture a couple of impressing boats/ferries busy at work.


Another one…


Gerry and The Pacemakers even got to an extent of writing a song called ‘Ferry Cross the Mersey’. The song was a Top of The Pops hit in 1965. What I also liked most while on board was that from start to finish of our journey, we were treated to a live commentary. This livened up the trip, as we had to go on a journey through time again. We got to learn about buildings that were built over 100s of years ago. Historic buildings complimented modern building showcasing stunning architectural skills. It was a taste of hundreds of years of history in just a day’s trip.


To top up the experience, I had to pass by the Tate Modern Gallery. There was a lot to view. For me the exhibition that stole my eye was this captivating sculpture.


This is when one realise that art comes in any form, shape or feel. Art promotes some form of togetherness as it engages different cultures. I couldn’t ignore this poster.


This blog is going to make me reveal a lot of things about myself, but who cares anyway. I own a sewing machine and love experimenting on different things. I guess I take it from my dad (will save that for another day). This display was another journey back in time. It just proves how privileged we are today. Imagine trying to iron a week’s laundry using any of the displayed irons…

This was another showstopper.

How do people come up with such genius creations? Anyway, I leave it to your own imaginations. If you haven’t subscribed for my fortnightly newsletter, please do subscribe and never miss out on any latest Love Life updates.
