Présentation de l'éditeur
The route led sometimes over mountains and through forests and plains, where the boat had to be carried or dragged.
The waters navigated were as follows:
The Rivers Thames, Sambre, Meuse, Rhine, Main, Danube, Reuss, Aar, Ill, Moselle, Meurthe, Marne, and Seine.
The Lakes Titisee, Constance, Unter See, Zurich, Zug, and Lucerne, together with six canals in Belgium and France, and two expeditions in the open sea of the British Channel.
The object of this book is to describe a new mode of travelling on the Continent, by which, new people and things are met with, while healthy exercise is enjoyed, and an interest ever varied with excitement keeps fully alert the energies of the mind.
This wonderful historic book is a reprint of the original published in 1866.
