Auxerre was the next destination on our trip. Upon arrival, we paid about $14 USD to dock at the only marina in Auxerre, which was located by a footbridge that we used to walk to the city. This town is only about 2 miles wide and is packed with history! We went to a basilica that Joan of Arc had visited. We spent the day walking through fun shops, including a French “thrift shop” that was selling items which were hundreds of years old! Later in the day we dined at the one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at and made friends with some other boaters!
We were so taken with Auxerre we chose to stay there an extra day before heading to Migennes.
We arrived at our final destination Migennes and spent Friday night on the boat before packing up and leaving via train Saturday morning. We were very sad to say goodbye to the Burgundy region, the kind people at Le Boat and of the country of France. Overall, the trip was fascinating and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys boating, wine, great food and eclectic countryside.
All the Best,
