On a boat, the canals belong to you...You can spend weeks - months! - pottering through some of the most hauntingly beautiful countryside, your only company the wildlife around you or the fishermen you'd inevitably pass wherever you went. Just when Steve's wife starts to believe that he will hang up his narrowboating shoes and settle for a life on land, assured that his flights of fancy have already led him down every nook and cranny of the UK's waterways, he proposes a journey that proves no nomad can ever really settle. Leaving London, the bustling city of strangers, for the umpteenth time, Steve and his trusty narrowboat Justice set off from the Thames to Liverpool via Wales, drinking in the scenes and landscapes that Steve finds hard to resist. Delving into familiar waters which always present surprises along the way, he recounts his experiences with a humour and wit that bring to life the things we love best about Britain. AUTHOR: Steve Haywood is an award-winning TV producer and has worked on programmes such as Newsnight, Panorama and Rough Justice. Based in London, he writes a lively, provocative column for Canal Boat magazine. He has two previous titles, 'Narrowboat Dreams' and 'One Man and a Narrowboat'.

Steve is waving his worries goodbye on another of his light-hearted trips around the picturesque English waterways.

This time it's a bit different, though. This time he's not just cruising with his cat, Kit, but with his long-suffering wife, Em, who's given up work and wants her share of easy living too.
