9781849537285: Narrowboat Nomads: Living the Dream on the English Waterways

Austerity might be getting everyone else down, but Steve is waving his worries goodbye on another of his light-hearted trips around the picturesque English waterways. This time it’s a bit different, though—he’s not just cruising with his cat, Kit, but with his long-suffering wife, Em, who’s given up work and wants her share of easy living, too. They’ve rented out their home and there’s no going back now as they cruise from the historic River Thames, through the Midlands, and westward into the hills of Wales, meeting a familiar cast of eccentrics and oddballs along the way, and experiencing one of the hottest summers of recent years. But how, after life in a four-bedroom house, do they manage to survive together squeezed into a space the size of a shed?
