Storyline

Back in early 2016 and with his 50th birthday around the corner, Kevin Shelley (AKA CountryHouseGent) could feel the longtime stresses and strains of his modern lifestyle beginning to have a very real and serious effect - both mentally and physically. So by early 2017 and with almost all of his worldly possessions now sold, he packed the remainder into his camper van and set off to purchase what would become his new home - a canal narrowboat called Aslan. Thus began an amazing journey, not just along the UK canal network but also in the body and mind of Kevin. Watch as, episode by episode, he slowly transforms from an overweight, red faced, eternally exhausted and unshaven figure of a man, into a leaner, tanned and rested unshaven figure of a man. Along the way, he'll visit many new and undiscovered (by him) places, as well as demonstrating a penchant for the occasional pork pie or bacon and egg sandwich.

True life of a English Huck Finn life on a narrow boat
3 September 2019 | by tonygraves-93025See all my reviews

Enjoying the viewing of life in another country by the means of a new travel method. Almost how the horse riders of old days seeing a auto for the first time touring the country. It's modern living in a slow pace of life but still new images weekly. That's what the doctor tells every middle aged man to do. Slow down enjoy life. Just wish it becomes two travelers as life is better with the right co captain in life for all of us. Thanks for the English county landscape views.
