It's not about the destination, it's all about the journey!
Thanks for the delicious, beautiful, inspiring + peaceful adventure!

Barge was wonderful!! The crew was spectacular, and we all said we would go with them on another (different area) cruise. The Johanna was very ship shape and comfortable. We found the A/C in the staterooms very nice. Patsie was a wonderful cook!! Best food on the trip! Breakfast, then cruise in the morning and tie up around lunch. Lunch on board then the van would meet us to take us sightseeing. Back to the boat for a little rest, cocktails and dinner. Very relaxing way to travel. Nice too, because, except for Epernay, the area is not overrun with tourists.,

Dag Patsie & Kris
Bedankt voor het receptje hoor! Zal dit zeker uit proberen! (ik kook graag) We hebben echt genoten bij B&B Johanna! We vertellen onze verhalen in geuren en kleuren (net zoals Kris) We duimen voor jullie toekomst en hopelijk horen we nog iets van jullie, want jullie waren in zo een korte tijd onze vrienden! Groetjes.

This has been the most relaxing and enjoyable time. The barge is amazing. The meals and wine were absolutely delicious and the tours very informative. It was great to share your company the whole time. A very memorable holiday!

Merci encore pour votre accueil et votre sympathie lors de notre passage ce week-end. Ce fut un enchantement de découvrir votre péniche admirablement bien décorée et dans laquelle nous nous sommes très bien sentis. Un concept génial qui nous a permis de passer un admirable cap pour Nicolas. Au plaisir de vous revoir, en Belgique ou lors d'un voyage au fil de l'eau en France.

Free translation: Thank you again for your welcome and sympathy during our visit this weekend at your B&B. It was a delight to discover your barge so beautifully decorated and where we felt very well. A brilliant concept that allowed us to spend a wonderful birthday for Nicolas. Hope to see you in Belgium or while traveling on the canals in France.

Van de talloze reizen die ik in mijn leven reeds heb gemaakt, was deze cruise van Brugge naar Parijs de meest rustgevende en ontspannende ooit.

What can we say other than "this was the PERFECT trip"! We enjoyed ourselves tremendously, from the first to the last. The Johanna is a perfect barge boat with every detail well thought out. The meals were five star. We felt completely comfortable and at home this last week aboard the Johanna and will always have great, fond memories of our trip and both of you (and Yara!). Thank you so much,

Thank you both for being such amazing hosts! I was amazed how modernly maritime the Johanna is furnished! The rooms had everything I needed to feel at home. The food was phenomenal! Delicious 3-course cuisine comprised of the freshest local ingredients, crafted by a par of world-class chefs. This was my first time ever in Europe, and I'm convinced there is no better way to tour. Will be looking to you both for future adventures into other countries. Thanks for the memories.

Nice hosts. Patsie and Kris are the greatest. One highlight for me was helming the ship. The Strépy locks were awsome. Thanks for your hospitality, "the best". Please come and visit us in Gosport.

We had a FAB-U-LOUS time aboard the Johanna. The Strépy Locks had to be the Highlight for us. You both looked after us so well. Thank You.

What a wonderful week we spent on your beautiful boat. The food was super and we do enjoy spending time with you. Thank you so much. Thanks to Johanna too!

Thank you for a perfect voyage of discovery of West Flanders. Forever in our minds will be the magic of floating down the canals and watching the sun-dappled countryside. Your boat is beautiful, the food assumptious and the company delightful. Best of luck!
