Dreams are made of this

A few months back me & the OH were very fortunate to receive some Olympic tickets. We had the option of Cycling, Beach Volleyball and Gymnastics. It was a fairly easy choice! The opportunity to go to THE Velodrome, THE Olympic Park, it was a no brainer.

Each week our excitement grew greater. Watching the Velodrome play host to several Team GB gold moments further fuelled the excitement. Like most we sat and watched the Olympics each night, each time thinking we're going there!

The week before we spent decorating our flags & working on our outfits!

How special does Mr B look?! ;)

Then the day arrived. We stayed in a Holiday Inn (absolutely beautiful!) near Luton. We parked up at Hertfordshire County Showground as we were taking full advantage of the Park and Ride! We got on the 5.30 am coach.... Excited, yet half asleep!

Beautiful sunrise!

It was very surreal once we got to the Park, we both said it was hard to believe we were actually at the Olympic park, the place we've been watching on TV every day.

The Velodrome was mind blowing. Such a beautiful building and I really don't think there's a bad seat / view in there.

Mr Hoy ;)

We had an absolutely fantastic rest of the day in the Olympic Park. Admittedly we were both in a bit of a daze with it all. I'm not even sure if it's sunk in yet! It really is a once in a lifetime adventure.

I'm sorry there's so many pictures In this post! Sometimes I think it's better to let the pictures do the speaking, and this is certainly one of those moments

Will you be as gutted as me when the Olympics end? I'm very excited for the Paralympics to begin though :)

Until next time....
