Beijing Olympic Games 08-08-08

Exactly three years ago, I was in Beijing for the Opening Ceremony of my second Olympics.  Working as a volunteer at the Aquatic Centre during the Athens 2004 Olympic Games had been an amazing experience, so I couldn’t miss the Games in China either.  They turned out to be another ‘Once in a Lifetime Experience’.  No wonder the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games are already on my travel agenda.  Last month, I scored a 99 euro Eurostar return ticket Brussels – London for the Olympic Opening Weekend July 27 – July 29, 2012.  The hunt for a hotel room is on. 🙂

  1. Hi Susie, thanks for your comment. Well, you need to register with the organizing Olympic Committee to be selected as volunteer. You need to sign-up two years in advance or so, too late for London 2012 now. Keep an eye on the Rio 2016 site!

    • Thanks for the information. I’m going to register although 2016 is a long time to wait. Your blog pictures are absolutely gorgeous. Keep up the great work!
