Long-term, we are making plans to live aboard/abroad cruising the waterways of Europe for a couple of years - particularly France and NL.
Mickey reminded me of this. I'm half way through reading this book (The Unlikely Voyage of Jack de Crow) which was recommended by someone at work about a guy sailing his Mirror dinghy across Europe. Thought it might appeal to some on this forum since many like taking their AI's on on trips.
Truly hilarious books are rare. Even rarer are those based on real events. Join A.J. Mackinnon, your charming and eccentric guide, on an amazing boat called Jack de Crow.
Equipped with his cheerful optimism and a pith helmet, this Australian Odysseus in a dinghy travels from the borders of North Wales to the Black Sea - 4,900 kilometres over salt and fresh water, under sail, at the oars, or the end of a tow-rope - through twelve countries, 282 locks and numerous trials and adventures, including an encounter with Balkan pirates. Along the way he experiences the kindness of strangers, gets very lost, and perfects the art of slow travel.
