Sherz & Linz On The Broads - May 2016 Holiday

Recommended Posts

Hi folks!

Watching Robin's latest youtube installment reminded me of this site, which I signed up to ages ago but alas never got round to getting very involved with! 

Just thought I'd share my latest holiday vid/blog/docu-whatever-you-want-to-call-it, featuring myself and my lovely lady onboard a little Hampton Safari for a week last year. I was bitten by the Broads bug at a very young age, and still can't get enough of it now. We're heading back towards the end of next month to do it all over again... :)

Nice. I thought it was more entertaining than the Brooms advert. Good music too  

One thing I have to comment on though. What's the soft drinks doing in the shots with the wine? Amateurs:party:

loved it and you really looked like you had a fantastic time. Hopefully you will be back this year?

Haha, I can assure you that Linz is no amateur, she'd probably drink me under the table to be fair. ;)

Indeed, we had an amazing time! I'm an old hand at Broads holidays, having done it with the family since I was a toddler - although after a 20 year break from it, I re-discovered the bug 3 years ago. Linz's first experience of it was our 2015 holiday (obligatory holiday video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmyv0RjjxCY&t=3s) and now she's as hooked as I am. 

One day when time and funds allow, we'd love to move to this part of the world. Well you gotta dream... In the meantime we're back on the water for a week on May 22 - bring it on!

Hi John and welcome. I watched your video a few weeks back and enjoyed it. As a Richardsons fan I envied you on the Capri because I've always like it but never hired.

We originally hired it because it was about the cheapest option with a proper sliding canopy. Seems very well set up for a "budget" boat though! Unfortunately somebody pipped us to the post for this year's getaway - will have to see what Ruby Gem is like in comparison... :)

Ruby Gem is huge by comparison, it's also a great value 2 berth. The fixed dining table arrangement, separate to the sofa area is a great benefit.

Thanks for all the kind words people! Just counting down the days now to get out there with the camera and do it all again...

Great video, saw it when you published and you got a thumbs up. Best bit for me was Linz cooking breakfast while still in bed, total luxury!
