Picture This: The Olympic Torch

I have a confession to make: I haven’t been very excited about the Olympics taking place in London. For me, the Games meant lots of traffic traffic, unpredictable tourists, a packed and sweaty underground, noise and even longer commuting… for a whole month.

I’m a person of wide open spaces, clean air and walking distances, you know.

This was until yesterday. Something changed. I’m not sure whether it was the beautiful sunny weather, the cheerful people waving their nations’ flags or my overall excitement of changing my career… but suddenly, I really feel like taking part of this mega event. I give myself in.

The Olympic Torch, London 2012

Not the best capture of the torch, but you can sort of guess it, right?

Starting with following the crowds to watch the torch relay cross my new neighborhood and continuing with not one but two tickets to the games, volleyball and boxing – I’m now an olympic convert.

    Cool! I remember when the torch passed through Ottawa (for Vancouver 2010), it was kind of exciting :-)

      It is, right? Even if it’s only for a second that you see it!
