En Londres nos quedamos en Romford, la ciudad donde vive mi familia por solamente un par de dias y luego nos fuimos con mis padres a su barco que esta anclado en uno de los canales de Francia, en el centro del pais, cerca de Nevers. Estuvimos navegando bastante por los canales y pasamos por muchos locks y hemos hecho una seleccion de lo mejor de esos lugares que incluyen ciudades como Nevers y Digouin.
Nos relajamos mucho bebiendo buenos vinos y comiendo deliciosos quesos franceses (que inevitiblamente nos ayudo a subir de peso)
We travelled from Barcelona to London on the most crap bus we'd been on for months. Unlike in Chile, there were no services, blankets or food provided on this trip. The journey itself was enjoyable and we did manage to see quite a few French towns along the way as well as the Pyrenees at sunset.
We stayed in lovely Romford, the town in the north east of London, where my family live for just a couple of days and then went with my parents to their boat in the centre of France. We travelled a lot each day through the canals, passing through many locks.
We relaxed, drank wine, ate delicious cheese and put on weight of course. Some of us fell in the canal.
It's a good idea to study a little French before you go if you're thinking of travelling on the canals, as very few people in the villages and small towns speak English.
