A few days on a canal boat

It’s been a long time since I was last on a canal boat, but, as this year was a somewhat significant birthday it seemed like a good idea to celebrate with a few days away on a narrowboat with some good friends.

The boat was May, the pace was slow, and the beer was flowing! Basically, it was a good choice and I’m pretty sure that everyone had a grand time. Perhaps I’ll do it again for another ‘significant’ birthday.

A rather lovely little place to stay

Here’s where I stayed at the beginning of May. It’s a converted rail freight car. It had no electricity of independent lights. The only light was from candles, so it was rather lovely inside. Cosy, friendly and really quite wonderful.

Yeah, we’re staying on a boat!

There’s a lot to be said for actually checking emails and stuff like that. Just a week or so ago I went away with some friends only to find out at the last minute that we were staying on a boat. I probably should’ve checked emails and the like, but I didn’t, so it was something of a surprise to me.

A good surprise though. The hotel was in Bratislava, on the Danube, and was perfectly adequate.

The Musical Museum

This is a place I’ve been meaning to visit for a very long time, but as it’s only open on very specific days of the week. But a couple of Saturday’s ago I managed to get there. It’s a lovely place. Somewhere that anyone in London should visit if they have any interest in musical instruments, especially the mechanical kind.

It’s small, much smaller than the one by the same name in Brussels, but it is great and I’m sure that I’ll be going again.
