Travel Tuesday: London Olympics
Michael and I have been trying since last year to score tickets to the London Olympics this summer. First, it was a lottery. You put in your ticket requests for the events that you wanted and if you won the lottery, they charged your credit card and you were in.
Big Surprise. We didn’t win the lottery.
Then it became a grab for whatever tickets were leftover. The ones no one wanted. Handball. Race Walk. Judo. No thank you.
Just the other day, the organization that is managing the tickets released what was left. And lo and behold, there were some of our events. Now, I won’t pay $800 for Athletics (Track and Field), even to see Bolt break the World Record. But tennis was there, football (soccer) and some others that we were interested in. And at reasonable prices. So once again, we got excited about the chance to go to London for the Olympics.
