Things to Do in London: GoBoat on Regents Canal

During our walk through Camden and then down to Regents Park with my bestie, I noticed some fun-looking boats on the canal. The little boats basically had just a picnic table on board, and groups were seated around, eating snacks and boating in the sun. It looked so fun and…

Fontainebleau and Samois-sur-Seine, France
