Welcome to my ramblings about being on a boat for the summer. I got fed up of looking for a career, and decided instead to have an adventure - so I'm going to be working on twin boats, Snipe and Taurus, and travelling up and down canals in England and Wales for six months. I have no experience in this kind of thing, so I'm hoping to learn a lot as well as save up some money for further adventures in the future! If you want to read more about the company with whom I'm working, check out www.canalvoyagers.com.
I have no idea of what the summer will be like, but I'll be telling you about it whenever I have Internet connection. The company is run by a lovely couple, Corinne and Neil, and their new little puppy Bertie - expect a million photos of him soon! Alongside Corinne and Neil will be myself and Sara, a girl from Venice. We're yet to meet but apparently our birthdays are a few days apart so expect September to be a busy time...
As well as documenting my trip, I really wanted to use this as an opportunity to stay in touch with my family and friends. You're all scattered around the country (and the world, to be honest) and although I'll be meeting a few of you along the way this summer, it would be lovely to hear from you all, so feel free to comment on any of this stuff.
We begin on April 12th. I think I'm ready.
