    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

German police

Posted by contentedsouls on 10/08/2014

Where am I? Vacherauville. Middle of nowhere really (as is pretty normal for us) but, having moored up, we were soon joined by a Swiss couple.

Tomorrow I get to take a German Police boat (wasserpolitzei) through a lock and the Swiss owners get to take MR through a lock – we have a cunning plan with bike and car. How often in life do you get that sort of opportunity!

    Has Daisey jumped ship then? LOL


    • No, but she does like to hitch a ride on something a bit different sometimes. No wretched internet again for ages (except when we drove up into the mountains for miles to get a signal and attend to some important ‘office’ stuff on e-mail and I took the opportunity to load a post from live writer).
      Subsequently only just seen your radio alert. I think it should be repeated Sunday lunchtime, fingers crossed xxx
