Olympics - London 2012

Olympic fever has well and truely hit the UK, and last Wednesday I was lucky enough to spend the day exploring the Olympic park as well as watching 2 nail biting matches:

However in a twist of fate, my flatmate had some spare tickets for the Olympic park and naturally I jumped at the chance to visit!

I had so much fun exploring the area and taking photos, and in the end we were lucky enough to get recycle tickets for both the men's hockey and the women's basketball.

It felt so surreal being at an Olympic match and I'll forever cherish the fact that I was lucky enough to be a part of London 2012.

Do you have a favourite Olympic sport? Which country are you supporting?
