Some of the best gifts I’ve found for people have been from bloggers’ recommendations. I often learn about new-to-me products and services from the blogs I read — things like books, travel gifts, and even clothes. While recently in Saint-Emilion, I discovered Rewined candles at a gift shop after the wine-inspired label caught my eye.
The most common question I got after our first self-piloted canal cruise was whether or not someone new to boating and the canals can do this type of vacation and actually enjoy it. Would the stress of handling a boat get in the way? Should someone with no boating experience even consider a canal cruise?
The landscapes of France are incredibly diverse. Nature lovers, beach bums, bird watchers, hikers, and all types of travelers can lose themselves in what France has to offer. On my quest to see more of France, we decided to head south to a region we had never visited. We invited my parents and in-laws on our second canal boating trip along the Mediterranean and the surrounding canals.
Last time we went east to Alsace. This time, we headed south to the Camargue, and from there, headed west ending up in the Canal du Midi aboard a Nicols canal boat. No special training or boating licenses are required making this sort of trip accessible to everyone who wants to experience France from the water. As expected, the trip was incredible!
Hello friends! Just checking in with a quick post for you today.
My parents are here for the rest of the week and we all just got back from a big trip down south. We did our second canal cruise aboard a Nicols boat and I’ll be telling you all about that soon. Until then, I’m sharing photos from our pit stops before and after our cruise.
