Barge or houseboat…

When in Europe, barges are more than commercial transport vehicles. In Europe, unlike in the United States, barges have homes on one end. Families live on the barge. And more amazingly there are special schools for the children that live on these barges! Copyright 2019 Pamela Breitberg
Our curiosity was raised when each barge that passed on the Mein, Rhein and Meisel Rivers all had a personal car and other personal touches on one end of the barge. We learned it’s a family home for the captain or pilot steer. These images were taken from inside our ship; hence the reflection…..sorry. Copyright 2019 Pamela Breitberg
