London Olympics & Paralympics 2012

Tuesday, 11 September 2012


London 2012 has finally come to an end. I intentionally held back from blogging about my Olympic Experience so as to relive it again after its all over. It was my first ever Olympic games and I think the UK did a fabulous job. I remember the watching the Athens games on TV many moons ago and wistfully longing to witness this magnificent event. I was however guilty of not fully engaging with tickets when the games came to where I lived. Thanks for my fully engaged, sports enthusiast husband, I did not miss out. My personal experience of the games included football at Old Trafford, Manchester, Fencing, Paralympics Athletics, Judo and Table Tennis. I was also very fortunate to witness the Victory Parade in between work meetings. Here are some of my sights from the games. I also love the Wenlocks and Mandevilles spread across Londontown. My favourite is the Sari Wenlock at Brick Lane. Perhaps I'll do a Wenlock spotting tour of London some day soon! Ann x

P.S. Please excuse low quality resolution as the photos were mostly taken from my phone.
