Do you remember I wrote about a time we enjoyed watching the canal boats and having a stroll down by a canal in Northern England one sunny day in 2017? No?
Well, we did. It was a delightful stroll.
Our next adventure will see us chugging down another canal in a different country. In a boat not beside one, admiring those canal boats.
First, we have a few days in Amsterdam. Read about our last trip to this intriguing city
Then we will be heading off to a smaller town in the Netherlands countryside [see below a rough guide of our trip]. Which there are many canals to explore.
What I love about this trip, is that we can still get excited about the planning, anticipation and all that comes with a new adventure after years of travelling.
This trip is going to be more about sharing a unique experience with people we have known for nearly 10 years. It is going to be a new experience for all of us.
Though the Squire is the only one that has 30 years experience on various boats. For two of us we shall be the crew [until such time we get hold of that steering wheel], and the fourth a trainee skipper.
Let’s see how long it takes to establish our “sea legs”.
Now while we are doing this I won’t be blogging, I had this image of me trying to type and read in very little light at 2 am while everyone else was asleep.
Not the best idea I have concocted.
The only solution is to have a complete break, to enjoy the new experience and being with friends we don’t usually see on a regular basis. Due to them living down South and us being generally up North when we are in New Zealand.
Catch up with you all in a month or so.
Then I shall be reading your posts and rocking out a few myself in October when we will be housesitting in France.
Though I will post a few photographs, which knowing me, will be more than a few, on Instagram.
