Subject: Canal trips
Dear Margaret, We have been on wonderful canal boat holidays in England, with family and friends. I would highly recommend it as an unusual, scenic, relaxing, way to see Europe; canalside pubs, everchanging beautiful views, navigating tunnels and locks, waterbirds, fresh produce from farms and villages, time to chat, read and soak up the sun. All the conveniences of travelling with a trailer/caravan, without the traffic. Fun for our school aged children (lifejackets at all times outside the cabin). We shared the cost with close friends or extended family. The boats travel slowly and away from the hustle of the roads so you really unwind and see a side of the countryside hidden from car travel. We loved it. Regards Rose
