We came to France in January of 2000 to buy a barge and cruise the canals for a year or two.
Veni, Vidi, Velcro = We came, we saw, we stuck around.
We cruised on the beautiful canals and rivers of France and Belgium for our first 6 years, wintering for 6 months every year in Roanne, France. In 2006, we were lucky enough to find a permanent mooring in Paris, so now our barge only cruises for a couple of months during the summer, the rest of the time it is our apartment near the Bastille in Paris.
