7 reasons every person should experience a houseboat at least once in their lifetime


Living on a houseboat means adventure, a sense of freedom, and being in the vicinity of nature is rewarding in its own way! You should experience a houseboat at least once.

Various types of houseboats are built for various types of waterways. A few are driven by engines while others are manually driven. The ones without engines are usually kept attached to the dock to provide easy access to land.

Living on a houseboat can be a gratifying experience for anyone. Here are a few reasons why you should live in a houseboat at least once in your lifetime.

1. You live a much simpler life

Houseboats provide an escape from monotony. The calm waters and splendid nature make a great company.

The environment is peaceful and relaxing all through the day as it keeps you away from the city hustle.

6. Fresh food!

While living on a houseboat, you won’t really have to travel to the grocery stores as you can capture fresh fish on the go! If not, then maybe you could try your hand at fishing.

7. Great conversations

Living on a houseboat means great conversations that happen over sunset, evening tea, romantic dinner or while playing board games!

Living on a houseboat also teaches you some important life lessons. You live minimally, there may be less space, and since you may have to do everything by yourself, it teaches you to be truly independent. There is adventure and there are challenges but nothing can really ever go wrong while living on a houseboat
