Welcome to Life in a Nutshell
We are Magnus and Wendy, an Australian couple documenting our journey traveling the world on water, usually at about 3MPH.
After years of thinking about traveling the canals of England, we have finally done it. We bought a Narrowboat. We sold all our cattle, turned the water off and locked the front gate at the farm. Then hopped onto the big silver bird for a new life in a Nutshell. It’s been a hectic time but we are loving it. We battled through ice and found out that English pubs are worth stopping at. We had quite a few beers and fell into a new life on the water. As continuous cruisers we have had a sharp learning curve but it’s a blast.
We don’t have any real plans apart from ‘Circumnavigating England’ from the inside. Starting in Northwich we reckon on a 2 year trip.
After our circle here we will trade steel for fiberglass and sail back to Australia. But it won’t be the direct route. We will head to the Baltic to start this next Adventure.
Please come on this adventure with us. Since we left Australia we have been filming our our adventures on YouTube.
