Lou and I did our first ever narrowboat holiday last week and it was a great success. We were accompanied by Kieran and his girlfriend Becky and my parents for a total of six with an age span of almost 65 years. For such a disparate group to all have a good time is a strong testament to how relaxing such a holiday can be!
Now I’ve received vouchers for 25% discount if I book another canal holiday for this year. Lou and I would love to do this and are in the process of trying to find four friends who fancy spending a week plodding along in a boat. Six people seems to be good number and works out (with discount) at about £150 per person for a week in September. If you know Lou or I and are interested, please get in touch, it’s good fun, honest!
For the record, this is where we spent each night whilst we travelled around the Stourport Ring. The last night (Friday) was spent in the docks from which we started.
