A funny tale of two young girls who make their first voyage to the Continent by themselves during the 1920's. From a nearly capsized ship, smuggling into England with the measles and other mishaps, it is a funny read. The book also has line-drawings illustrating all of the most laughable moments.

A charming travelogue from about 1920, from the point of view of two affluent new adult ladies. They're honest, with no pretense, though, so the humor is real and delightful.

Provides a nice counterpoint to the "Lost Generation" who wrote of Americans in Europe in constant pursuit of some cathartic hangover of perfect despair.
