The Olympics Are In London
Folks, I think it’s time to face the facts…the 2012 Olympics are not going to be held in Chicago. But as sad as I am that our beautiful city isn’t going to host the games, as a diehard Olympics fan you know that I am still going to be travelling to London to see the games in person. But because I believe in being prepared anytime I live in Chicago, I decided to do some research about London first, through the site HomeAway. Now, if anyone wants to head to London to see the Olympics life, they will know exactly what they are getting into.
To begin with, it turns out you can find a nice place to stay at without destroying your bank account. There are plenty of London holiday apartments, and they have the benefit of being comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, and they’re affordable. Considering how much merchandise I plan to buy, finding affordable London Olympics accommodation was definitely relieving. I also found out that there would be plenty to do when I’m not watching the games. Between visiting sites like the London Bridge, all the shops around London, and the crazy nightlife I doubt I am going to get any sleep. There are really too many places to list, so I really suggest that you check out the shopping and nightlife on your own.
But the real reason I’m going is to watch the Olympics. As a martial arts fan I’ll certainly be watching the Taekwondo, Judo, Boxing and Wrestling events. But my girlfriend has been a lifelong swimmer, so I guess I’ll be spending a lot of time watching Diving, Swimming, and Water Polo also. So to recap, at London I’ll find a nice place to stay, indescribable nightlife and shopping, and the games themselves. Are the London Olympics here yet!
