Would you leave your job, sell your house, abandon your family and friends, and move to France to live on a boat? With no income, and no idea what the next day would bring?
Probably not. But that's what Mike and Liz did, choosing to cast off from corporate life to live on and travel the waterways of France. They're boarded by armed police, nearly lose their boat, and pull a near-drowned body from the water. With a blade against his neck, Mike's fate rests on a soccer game, and he and Liz accuse a Frenchman of not knowing how to soil a bat.
This is their adventure, a book for anyone who's ever thought they might like to just get away from it all, throw caution to the wind, and see what tomorrow feels like. It will take you to the limits, bring you down to earth, but most of all it will make you laugh out loud.

Easy to listen to, hard to put down!
Hilarious, inspiring, fun!
I love Mike and his wife! They are the perfect pair.
I definitely felt tears at the end when he reminisced on the past events! I'm a crier haha, but it was a very good read and I was sad to see it end. To give up everything you know for a complete change of life - wow!! Inspiring.
This book is full of fun facts on boating, history, France, etc! My brother was sucked in and listened to parts with me also. He was very impressed with all the knowledge the author shared.
That being said, there is a great amount of humor incorporated also. I was constantly laughing out loud while listening to this! When they go to church to pray for wine - oh my gosh haha!! "Cheers, Jesus!"
You get to meet a wide array of interesting characters. And I really enjoyed the music between chapters! The author is a fantastic narrator as well. I wouldn't hesitate to listen to another book written or narrated by him.
An enjoyable travel bite
