Cruising France’s Canal du Midi

I am not a boatie, nor have I ever been a boatie.

The prospect of a self-drive cruise trip down France’s Canal du Midi was only ever set to become a reality after heavy promises from others on board that I would not have to take responsibility for driving/steering?

So with a binding verbal agreement from my husband in place, we set off on the five-day trip in our 15-metre Locaboat Penichette.

There was no solid plan. We were aiming for Beziers, about 50 kilometres from our starting point at Argens Minervois, but it did not really matter if we did not get there.
