Kris & Patsie, what an amazing trip! The food, the conversation, the barge and the Pilates - of course - were all so amazing. This was a beautiful trip with my Bel Esprit friends and a beautiful memory that I will always have. Thank you for sharing your lovely barge & yourselves with us... Best of luck to you both & Happy Barging!
I hope to see you again.

Kris + Patsie, Thank you so much for this wonderful experience. I loved every minute of it! Your barge is beautiful and the tours and meals were fantastic (especially all of the lovely vegetarian dishes you fixed for me). A trip of a lifetime. I will remember this for years to come!

Merci Beaucoup! I'm so pleased to have enjoyed my first barge experience aboard the charming Johanna. And, we ladies laughed and loved every minute - from yoga, to our special Pilates class, to drinking rosé and champagne, relaxing on the water and your lovely hospitality and delicious food.
We leave refreshed and with memories to last a lifetime.
Johanna me manque!

Merci beaucoup for the amazing trip! It was truly a trip of a lifetime and I'm so pleased it was on Johanna! Your hospitality was superb. All of our senses were delighted on this barge. I do hope our paths will cross again.

Thank you, Kris and Patsie, for this special time on your lovely barge Johanna.
You are wonderful, warm hosts with complementary skill sets that makes for a lovely atmosphere on board. We've loved the food, the champagne and our time just enjoying this beautiful part of France pass by.
Thank you for everything.

Goed ontvangen en lekker eten! Beste belevenis in acht dagen: de rust en de STILTE.

What can we say? The cruise went smoothly from the time arrangements were being made until the end of our time on board. It was, also, really good to visit new WW1 sites and memorials as well as revisit others.
Patsie, it would be wrong to say your meals were good - they were superb. Thank you for all the work you put in to produce these gems.
Kris, thank you for all the work you put in to arrange our great visits to the various sites.
Again, thank you both - you went over and above in everything you did. We will remember you and your two deckhands Cotenoir and Babou.

What a wonderful trip.
Fun seeing France from a barge. Patsie's meals were absolutely wonderful. We want to take her home with us for her healthy ccoking! Comfortable, informal - everything we wanted and more. So glad we experienced this. Thank you for your hospitality.

We all had a wonderful time and memories of a lifetime.
Anytime you talk about a trip with friends, they ask a lot of the usual questions. What did you see, did it cost a lot, how was the weather, etc. However, one friend asked only two rather simple questions about the trip, what were the highest and lowest points? No one had ever asked me those questions before. Anyway, without hesitation, my answer for the highest point was the Eiffel Tower; we have made it to France. It is the iconic representation of Paris and France, at least from an Americans' point of view. Paris, no doubt, is one of the great cities of the world. So the question about the lowest point - I said leaving the Johanna. I especially had just a great time aboard your vessel. You were the best hosts anybody could ever imagine. You provided fabulous food, refreshments, conversation, transportation, everything. You really opened your hearts to us.
