Doing the Doubs

Our plan is to start the year by cruising from Auxonne to Mulhouse, by heading down the Saone to Saint-Symphorien, then up the Canal du Rhône au Rhin (which coincides with the River Doubs on many occasions as far north as Montbéliard) and on to Mulhouse, before joining the Grand Canel d'Alsace. Once there, we might try a short side-trip south to Basel (just so that we can say we went to Switzerland by barge!), but more likely we will head north to Strasbourg, and then on to parts unknown.
