Barger & Boater blogs

I would so much have liked to be able to list a collection of blogs on barges moored here in Venice, but as you will see from clicking through what follows, not a single story regards life aboard in the Venetian lagoon. Nonetheless, I have found a wealth of interesting stories and information in these blogs and web sites which offer numerous tips, tricks and anecdotes which are valid for all kinds of boats, in any waters. Some of them have been updated quite recently, others not — but the resources remain valid just the same.
