    After 6 years aboard our Narrowboat Matilda Rose in the UK, we took the plunge and shipped her across to Europe. After 2 years in Europe we knew we didn't want to return to the UK so took the plunge and purchased a 1902 20 mtr Dutch Tjalk called Francoise and are now continuing our travels of the waterways of Europe in a buxom wench

The stunning Dinant in Belgium. 11.06

Posted by contentedsouls on 09/07/2014

Still playing ‘fill the gap in the blog’. I couldn’t miss Dinant out of my blog – it would be criminal. If you want to go somewhere different for a weekend break you would be hard pushed to find anywhere with more drama.

Very pleased to see there was a cable car to the top. Methinks I might have had some difficulty in persuading G to climb it. 8/9 euros a piece included return trip in the cable car and a guided tour of the citadel. We didn’t bother with the ‘guided’ bit. We just poked around and did our own thing. Visibilty was perfik

    • Hi guys, lovely to hear from you. Sorry, your comment was lost in the ‘admin’ – I really haven’t got to grips with WordPress, it does crazy things with comments (they seemed to auto publish, but now I’ve found some that didn’t, so I’ve no idea how many I’ve missed). I thought that very few people were speaking to me!
      This week I have no intention of keeping busy – it is the first time in 6 + years that I have had MR to myself for more than one night at a time!
      George is right, if you can’t do a bit of lyrical waxing over Dinant there is no hope for you xx
