Three Men on the Bummel (by Jerome K Jerome)

I had previously read the classic 'Three men on a boat' by this author, to my sons, and we all loved it.

So I thought we'd try 'Three men on the Bummel', which is - kind of - a sequel. George, Harris and J decide to make a cycling tour of Germany.

The early chapters discuss their family life with scant regard to their wives, and the later chapters describe their travels. It's rather rambling, with a bit of humour now and again. Fairly good to read aloud to young teenagers, although I'd have skimmed somewhat if I'd read to myself.
