We’re going to be experiencing life on the canals as we navigate locks, bridges, tunnels, and aqueducts crossing from the UK into Wales.

And lucky us, we have The Canal King himself as our Narrowboating mentor.  If you are a @CruisingTheCut fan then you already know we’re off to a good start!

David is loved by many for his videos, including us.  But let me tell you, he is even more fun in person!  We didn’t give him enough kudos in this video (we gush about him at the end of the trip) but he was a huge help in making the whole trip happen including being our taxi driver.  Next time…because there will be a next time, we’ll get a bigger boat and try to convince David to come with us for the whole experience.

Hire Your Own Narrowboat - ABC Boat Hire was David’s recommendation, and he was spot on.  They were incredible hosts and made the whole experience smooth as butter.

WE’RE JASON AND NIKKI WYNN. A couple of modern-day documentarians, perpetual travelers, and seekers of tall tales.

We’ve been chasing our curiosity around the world on wheels and keels since 2011. Why? Because curiosity is the key to unlocking life. It pushes us outside our comfort zone, softens our assumptions, and helps us embrace the great unknown. The more we let our curiosity lead the way, the more we discover about ourselves and the world around us.

Our home is also our transportation and we spend weeks away from civilization and sometimes land. Self-reliance and living a sustainable lifestyle are a must. It's all about managing our resources and we’re always looking for new and better ways to do so.

We've lived off the grid for over 10 years now in everything from a Van to RV to a Sailboat. And over time we have learned a lot about renewable energy, creating safe drinking water, and managing our waste.

Our journey is ever-evolving but the mission remains the same: #CultivateCuriosity
