If I'd really been serious about getting to grips with my mid-life crisis, then I'd have been better opting for a course of therapy than going off travelling. Or if I had to travel, I'd have been better opting for somewhere warm with a beach...In an attempt to get to grips with a... BIG birthday, Steve sets out from Oxford to explore what makes the English...well, so English. His quirky humour is inspired by Tom Rolt, who took to the canals on a similar journey immortalised in the book Narrow Boat , kick-starting the revival of Britain's waterways. Prepare for a generous helping of mayhem, mishaps and the staple of every English summer: torrential rain.
