The 2014 Winter Olympics are now less than a year away, and this is the month in which all of the details fall into place. Tickets became available last weekend, for instance … and therefore last weekend was when John and I finally committed (along with my family and part of John’s) to make the trek to Russia for the event. We are thrilled, although there are still a lot of details to work out – like where to stay – but the prevailing emotion this week is excitement.
As we’ve been looking forward to next year, I began to think about our last trip; we didn’t plan it very far in advance at all, since we weren’t sure how quickly Jonathan would improve, but I’m glad we went – it was a great experience to see some of the events live and in person, and a fun adventure all the way around. I have quite a few photos from that trip, all in a jumble on my hard drive, and none of very good quality. But despite my humble point-and-shoot’s efforts, I’m thinking that in anticipation of 2014 I will post some photos and stories from our 2010 experience over the next year. Maybe once a week? I’m not sure how frequent this will be, but look for Olympics adventures to come!
… like Jonathan with his brand new medal …
… and Jonathan on the podium, which may be rather jumping to the punchline, but I can’t help it: this was the best moment of the whole Games.
