Hotel barge cruise in France, weekly blog about all inclusive vacation on the canal
Tuesday, 26 June 2012
10th - 16th June
Francisco this week gave the time to teach almost all passengers how to steer the boat. All discovering that he makes it look easy - really it's incredibly difficult. Barges don't stick straight! Especially in a narrow canal, there is also a delay in response time and a lot of turns are required of the wheel to turn the boat, eventually most got the hang of it. I have also applied for my pilots license, which takes a lot of practise and numerous exams to aquire... watch this space!
