    A weekend on a boat in the depths of Burgundy

    During the long summer days, if you're in town, the heat can soon get overpowering. The air is oppressive, the Underground turns into an oven and there are so many nasty smells wafting around that sitting outside on a café terrace just isn't enough to make up for the heat and discomfort. That's when you realise there's nothing else for it: you have to head for the open country, roam in the meadows, get on your bike, and leave the city behind. Once you've made up your mind to get away, you have to decide how to do it. Why not get together with a group of friends, escape to the canal and cruise along like a happy crew of sailors? After a bit of research on the web, I chose Locaboat because of its clear website, friendly advisers and elegant boats.

Just step aboard and go with the flow of the water and of history...
