"There do not appear to be customers in any of your places kc. Was that an oversight?"
Well, not entirely. You must remember that it is the middle of winter here in Europe, with temperatures generally below freezing, at least in continental Europe. Apart from the ski resorts, there are not so many people on holiday at this time of year.
We chose to do our grand tour now partly because there are relatively few customers around, so we have no problem with last minute reservations. I am also on a mission to save Europe, so there is method in my madness!
