After years in the computer software industry, Michelle and Paul Caffrey relinquished their careers determined to reinvent themselves. The fifty-something couple sacrificed everything they owned to buy a converted 1906 Dutch barge, Imagine, and started a charter business, Barge and Breakfast.

The memoir is packed with the adventures—and misadventures—of their first year with the barge as they travel from Holland, through Belgium, to France. A must-read for boaters, European or would-be travelers, those looking for pre-retirement inspiration, and everyone who has wondered what it would be like to live out a dream.
