We are one planet, one people and the ocean is our bathtub, so let’s get out our rubber duckies and play!

We had just stopped into an Auckland ice bar and had our obligatory cocktail out of our ice glass, while sitting on our ice stool, looking at ice sculptures.  Maybe it was the chill our brains received, but the 15 meter tall duck that sat in the harbor around the corner from us, did make us stop and take a bit of pause.

Giant Rubber Ducky

Giant Rubber Ducky

At no point during our trip planning for New Zealand did we think of seeking out a giant rubber ducky.  In fact, searching out giant rubber ducks has never made onto any itinerary that we’ve prepared for ourselves or our clients.

Rubber ducky, your'e the one, you help make bath time fun...

“Rubber ducky you’re the one, you help make bath time fun…I’m awfully fond of you…”

For any travel, it’s the unexpected moments like this that really make great vacations awesome.

We will leave you with one final thought on rubber duckies.  It’s the meme that really started it all for these fun creatures.  Careful though if you click play, the song may be stuck in your head for the rest of the day.  “He’s cute and yellow and chubby….rub a dub dubby..”
