We are New Zealanders who love France and spend 6 months each year cruising the canals on our Dutch steel cruiser, Silver Fern, and enjoying all that Europe has to offer. And maybe the odd vin.
Hi you two!
Excited to be ‘onboard’ with you!
À partir et de ne pas épargner le vin ! (I think!)
Shane and Kathryn Doig
Ne t’inquiét pas, Shane. Have you met my husband?
What a great read Karen, I’m looking forward to reading yours and Hodgies blog when youre next in France. So jealous: cheers Bruce
Thanks Bruce 🙂 We are leaving for France early May so I’ll be cranking up the blog very soon. Stay tuned…
Great to discover your blog! (Courtesy of Jackie Parry posting a link to it!) Nice to see some fellow Christchurch people out there doing it!
I am the President of a cruising club called the Little Ship Club of Canterbury. We have regular speakers talking about all things nautical and I was wondering if you might be keen to come over and talk to our group some time about cruising the canals? I am still looking for someone in April or May if you are still around then? We meet at Naval Point Club in Lyttelton, and have the bar open. We usually get about 50-60 ish people come along. There is a big TV you can plug your computer in. Most people do a slide show and a talk about their cruising experiences. You can read more about the club and what we get up to on our website. Feel free to come along to any of our events and see what it is all about.
Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.
Hi Viki, thanks for your message and following canalboatdreaming I’ll be following your blog with interest too. Your boating is a little more serious than mine!
I’ll have a think about your offer to speak to your group. I’m not sure when we will be leaving for our next trip and it might be a bit tight time-wise but thanks so much for asking.

Hi Al. Thank you for reading. Hope you are surviving the Chch winter!
We are a couple of Aussies travelling with Michelle and Graham ( Fiori ) and our son Jasper ( 8 ) who would love to be tipped off on any boat kids if you see some. Heading for Valence by late September.
Cheers Simon n Kelly ( Catkin ).
Hi Simon and Kelly. I don’t know any boat kids but I’ll let you know if I do. Happy travels!
My name is Alana and I was excited to come across your blog! My boyfriend is currently in Christchurch, NZ and just started a new job. I am still in the United States finishing spring quarter in school and then I am going to visit him.
I am looking forward to following you and reading more about your adventures!
Thanks for reading and your comment Alana. Good luck with school!
Thank you! Have a wonderful week!
