Harris said, however, that the river...

Well - it did in 2013 on our last narrowboat trip, though as in 2013 husband will stay in Berlin and guard our flat: he doesn't feel comfy in a narrowboat, being 1.98m tall.
For compensation we will both travel to Rome later.
Now I'm looking forward to our next narrowboat trip - different crew (not all artists this time) and different route. We will add a week with a car, visiting Durham, Leeds and Edinburgh.
(About the date of the new trip I will speak when I am back - I don't want to invite people from the Wild Wood).

Here today, up and off to somewhere else tomorrow! Travel, change, interest, excitement! The whole world before you, and a horizon that's always changing!” (Kenneth GrahameThe Wind in the Willows)


  1. Have fun Britta …. I know you will !! XXXX

  2. Toad certainly knew how to live. Have a grand time.

  3. I've spent plenty of time in Durham, Leeds and Edinburgh but never a second on a narrowboat. Happy horizons, Britta!

  4. That sounds like fun to me. Your husband will miss a good time.

  5. Happy voyage and don't let go of that floatation device.

  6. Thank you all so much for your good wishes! I still have a little time to read your posts and comment... then I'm off.

  7. Dear Britta - have a really great trip - somehow I know you will.
    Poop, poop, and off you go!

  8. Enjoy your holidays. I cannot imagine you on a narrow boat! I can imagine you in Edinburgh, Leeds and Durham though.x

    1. I opened not only the little normal locks, Rachel, but also the huge big ones! But I can imagine what you mean - though: I have many facets.

  9. Enjoy your break Britta - sounds like great fun.

  10. Hi again Britta ~ I am very jealous of your narrowboat trip. It's one of those things I'd love to day! At least we'll be able to enjoy it through you.

  11. So, Dear Britta, has the traveler made it home? You are missed!
