Three days on a narrowboat is actually far more….the well worn cliché is indeed a reality and time slows, giving life (and the heart rate) a new rhythm.
Occasional flurries of activity, involving the wonderfully named flights of locks and winding holes punctuate long periods of calm and contemplation.
You begin to notice and recognise the Life in trees, water, birds and beautifully crafted boats (including some still powered by steam). The journey quite literally becomes a prayer.
Food for thought as we prepare for a new lifestyle in Eldoret.
