Greetings from Beth Hanson, the owner of CanalBargeCruises.com. My husband, Jack, and I are all about canal barge cruises in France and Europe after cruising with our own barge for eight years.

Writing a blog is a bit daunting, but I’m ready for the challenge to share my experience and knowledge with you. Why? Because I love barge cruising. And I know a barge load of information about barge cruises from the barges themselves to the canals and sights visited along the way.

So where do I start? When I look back to the days when we owned and operated our own charter barge, I get so nostalgic I want to hop on a plane and head back to the amazing adventure Jack (my husband and partner) and I had from 1988 to 1996 when we cast fate to the wind and cruised the canals of Holland, Belgium and France on our own 4 passenger charter barge. It was the adventure of a lifetime, and I still pinch myself when I think of the most amazing experiences we had. Now that’s a blog!

Now, it is my job and pleasure to match wonderful people with wonderful barges so everyone can create their own experiences.

I’ll do my best to impart helpful information. Thanks for tuning in and subscribing to my blog so we can take this journey together. Welcome aboard, and thank you for letting me barge into your busy life.

Ready to go barging?

Here’s to your good health and happy travels,
