The Journey

The Journey We have Completed

We have travelled from Tarmonbarry in Ireland by road to Dover England, taking the boat on a truck and low loader. We put the boat in the water in Dover and motored it across the English channel. We then travelled the canals and went from Calais to Paris, onto Strasbourg before finally reaching Berlin (see individual parts of the trip on previously written blogs).

Where are We Now?

We travelled from Berlin back up the Rhine to Koblenz, up the Mozelle river through Luxembourg and onto Metz in France. From there we travelled down the canals in France to reach Chalon sur Saone where we are currently moored for the winter. We intend on staying on the boat until mid February when we will return to Ireland and return to work.
