Journal Entry 1 by wingTaryawing from Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Wednesday, January 15, 2020
A hilarious, true story of life-change, no going back, 40th birthdays and mid-life crisis. Follow the adventures of a husband and wife (plus two small children) as they take a barge through the French canals towards the Bourgogne and Canal du Midi - with The Mediterranean and Spain beckoning.

Damian Horner is scared that fifteen years in advertising have turned him into a bastard. As he approaches his fortieth birthday, he wants to see if he can be a good husband and a good father before it's too late. Siobhan, his wife, would like to find out too but has other worries. Do marriage and kids mean she's now trapped in a world of suburban domesticity?

It takes a miserable day and a bottle of wine to change everything. Suddenly Damian and Siobhan decide to throw their lives in the air and escape to the French canals, taking with them their son Noah who is two years old and can barely talk, and their daughter India who is one and cannot walk.

Told in two voices, we hear both sides of their story and get the whole truth as Damian and Siobhan describe coming to terms with themselves and their life on board an old fishing boat in France with no space, no fridge, no charts, no deadlines and no flushing toilet.

This book might interest a fellow bookcrosser.. ;) This sentence on the first pages caught my attention: "She [Siobhan Horner] had a highly successful career in the travel industry before starting a family. Her favourite job was as Marketing Director for the New Zealand Tourism Board." NZ! :O

This was ok, even it didn't have anything about NZ ;p I would've loved to read about their lives after the trip through France but the link at the end of the book didn't work anymore and googling gave me next to nothing.
