The story of Shane and Timothy Spall sailing out into the unknown aboard their Dutch barge The Princess Matilda. Part of this voyage has been the subject of recent tv series entitled ‘somewhere to somewhere’ broadcast in the UK on the BBC.
Many thing are lost on the couple – the art of navigation for example – but the book is full of humour. The story is a great example of following a dream when faced as Timothy was with an uncertain future and potentially a life cut short. Although the tv series only covered part of the journey this details their trip around the UK over a five year period. Well worth picking up a copy not just for the story but the inspiration to make the most of life.Learn More
