Join us on our travels around Europe aboard our Dutch Tjalk Francoise

    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

NOT moored at Lumes – hurrah!!!!! (moored at Bazeuilles)

Posted by contentedsouls on 17/07/2014

I am soooo rubbish at being static.

I left the last blog with a knock on the door from a bloke on a narra  (the first we’ve seen). The boat is Genie’s Wish, they are Tracy and Martin with their dog ‘Odd Job’ and their newly rescued ‘Piglet’ a miniature Pincher. They were followed home by a stray puppy one day which they took to the vet who sent it to a rescue centre. Sadly, the puppy died of Parva Virus but the rescue centre had their contact details so there was no way they were going to escape without giving a forever home to someone.

We had a brilliant time with them and their blog makes good reading – they came out here just over a year ago  G caught the earlier ferry so was back mid afternoon instead of early evening and we did a bit of shopping and playing with Martin and Tracy on Tuesday  before leaving yesterday. Now moored at Bazeilles just South of Sedan
