Three Men on the Bummel
With enormous tact and cunning the heroes of 'Three Men in a Boat' persuade their wives that they need some time in Germany without them. The men want to go 'on the bummel'. As Englishmen unable to speak German, cycling where they will, their holiday is full of comic misunderstandings and occasions when it is diplomatic to beat a hasty retreat! In the end, though, they are sorry when it's over.
