Okay, admit it, who else has Olympic fever? Once every four years we all pretend to know about gymnastics, swimming, diving, etc…and it is so much fun! I have been on vacation since the Olympics began, but I have been sneaking in as much TV time as possible at night and during nap times. I’ll be traveling tonight during the women’s gymnastic team finals, so no one tell me the results.
All of this Olympic excitement is just about to push me over the top on the “excitement radar” given that we leave for London to enjoy a couple of Olympic events in just a few days. My husband got very fortunate at being able to do some work for his company while in London, so this is a “work trip” for him. We desperately need to plan out our schedule while we are there so that we see some of the major attractions in London (since it is his first time to go to that city), get to the events, enjoy some time in the Visa Lounge, visit some pubs, have time for him to work, etc.
I have been posting about my process of planning the trip to London over on the Travel Channel’s blog. If you are curious, here are my posts so far about our trip to the Olympics:
Planning Our Trip (thanks Club Carlson for the great promos that made it happen!)
I’ll also be blogging more for the Travel Channel (and here) about the Olympics from London, so that should be really fun. I’m already plotting the trip that Little C and I will take to Brazil to see the Olympics in four years! She will be the perfect age to be in awe of the gymnasts! But before I get too far ahead of myself, I need to really start focusing on the trip that is almost here. I really can’t believe we are heading to London so soon. My first time to see Olympics gymnastics, first time to fly in international business class, and first time to Europe with my husband. Would love any suggestions from those who are already at the Olympics, or from others who just love London!
