Anne Husar and her partner decided to risk it all and take their narrowboat, Wandering Snail, to mainland Europe. There they discovered a very different boating experience to what poor Snail had been used to in the familiar British canals.
A Cigar In Belgium is the story of their steep learning curve and an affectionate tale of their growing love for Belgium - its waterways and its people - all told with a wry and gentle humour and based on Anne's diaries. Illustrated throughout with maps and photos taken from their voyage, this book is a must read for anyone with an interest in boat travel in Europe.
This title is distinguished by the fact there are no similar books describing narrowboat travel in Belgium and the growth of interest in the live aboard lifestyle, with its promise of escape from the everyday.
Anne Husar grew up in London but quickly escaped to the country where she raised her children. After sampling many narrowboat holidays, Anne and her partner decided to build their own boat and sail away!
