During the journey they visit many different places and fall into various and interesting situations.

Jerome Klapka Jerome (1859 - 1927) was an English writer and humorist. Inspired by his sister’s love for the theatre, he decided to try his luck in acting, but gave up after three years of no visible success. Jerome is best known for his comic novel "Three Men in a Boat" from 1889, a work that brought him large popularity. Some other popular works are the two collections of essays "Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow" and "Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow", and the novel "Three Men on the Bummel".
