Autumn Cruising In Burgundy
Autumn Cruising in Burgundy
We were once again very happy be able to welcome aboard the Randle our guests this Autumn following the lifting of travel restrictions, and autumn is truly a wonderful time to be in Burgundy. Below is a photo essay of some of the most memorable moments captured through our lenses and the eyes of our travellers.
As part of our service, we include pick-up in Paris, and by happy coincidence one of our pick-ups coincided with Paris journée sans voiture (day without cars) and Arc de Triomphe wrapped. Therefore, we made an impromptu walking tour enjoying the city without the tyranny of cars and a once in a lifetime view of the Arc du Triumph Wrapped.
Cruising in the Autumn, from river to canal, images from Joigny on the River Yonne to Etang du Baye at the summit of the canal at 262 m above sea level.
And of course cruising is nothing without dining which starts each day with petit dejeuner.
Off boat activities include visits to local vineyards and historic places of interest like the UNESCO listed Vezelay Abbey.

2022 and Fossil Fuel Free:
Next year the Randle will be Fossil Fuel Free using 100% bio fuel made in France and derived from plant products and edible oils, reducing our carbon emissions by 90% when compared to using conventional fossil fuel.
The Kitchen will be all electric too therefore no longer will gas be stored or used aboard the Randle.
We are now taking bookings for 2022 and 2023 and very much look forward to cruising with our guests in the coming season.

I dream of sitting in the sun with a bottle of burgundy, perhaps one day my dream will come to life.
