It started as a compromise, splitting the difference between sailing around the world and settling into a cozy flat in London. Instead, we bought a 21 meter 1926 steel Dutch canal barge, rented out our house in Ipswich, Massachusetts for two years and set off for whatever happens. That was ten years ago. After nine summers on the boat, on the canals, we decided it was time for the next phase of our lives. Of course, covid played a role, too.
Now, our old barge, Hoop Doet Leven is sold and we’ve moved on to whatever leaps our way. We’ll keep this blog active for a while. Feel free to skip around or to start from the beginning at https://onabargeinfrance.com/2011/10/31/hello-world/
