I decided that it might be prudent to start planning and preparation for this trip in February and March, mostly due to the fact that I'd be travelling during "peak season" in August. However, there were several other factors that prompted me to start making arrangements so early:
> It appeared that tickets for the Edinburgh Military Tattoo were starting to sell very quickly so it seemed prudent to get that sorted right away. At the time I reserved my ticket, the final Friday and Saturday performances were completely sold out!
> Fuel prices were quickly increasing, mostly due to conditions in the middle east. I had hoped to avoid a fuel surcharge, but unfortunately booked my air tickets on the day that a surcharge was added.
> Some departures on the tour of Holland & Belgium were already listed as "Waitlist Only" so I figured it might be a good idea to also get that booked as soon as possible.
