Ever since my river cruise in Europe and a canal-boat tour of Amsterdam, I've become quite enchanted by the romantic notion of traveling through Europe upon its waterways. And while my passion for river cruising has not waned; there is yet another mode of slow travel upon the waterways that captivates me—barging. The thought of spending a week onboard a classic canal barge ignites from within a wanderlust that must be satiated—not only to sail upon the waters, but immerse myself into the destinations and cultures. If you know me, traveling is not only about the places I visit but the journey along the way; and a boating holiday in France provides a means to that end.
