With the recent hype about a female iconic Doctor, this is just so apt!
Welcome to The Tardis: Time And Relative Dimension In Space, one of the most popular TV Sci-Fi series ever. Not that I was ever a true fan, but I knew one and could only describe him as obsessed!
Imagine entering a small box such as this to find an expanse of space so vast, it could take forever to explore.
Then turn it round.
What if you were used to living in such a machine with infinite room, and then one step outside and you were confined, restricted, and cramped.
This is how we felt when we first bought the boat, having moved from three bedrooms, 2 receptions, plus conservatory (and a kitchen and bathroom of course) to a home measuring just 41 feet by 6’10”. You could lose 10′ of living space due to the helm and bow areas, which was one of the reasons we had the covers fitted, to give us a Mud Room to remove our coats and shoes in bad weather, and a Conservatory to grow our tomatoes (which didn’t work, we had 2).
We may have downsized from a TARDIS to a thimble in 2014, but we grew to love it.
Now we’re going back in.
