Trip Rewind: 2010 Winter Olympics Vancouver – The Events

I was thrilled to be going to the Olympics in Vancouver but in all honesty I was not overly excited about all the events we were going to. I would have loved to see some skiing, after all I never did achieve my Olympic skiing dreamsΒ it would have be nice to see someone fulfill their dream for gold.

It was a good and a bad thing that we did not have tickets to the ski events. Yes we were missing out but it was a horrible year for snow. Some of the ski events had to be postponed due to unseasonably warm weather, which was an odd problem since it was February and Canada. You would think of all places it would be cold and snowy but I do recall running around without my jacket on as it was that warm in Vancouver. Take in to consideration I am from Idaho and not somewhere like Arizona where cold is considered 68F degrees (20C) πŸ™‚

I consider myself pretty lucky. There were quite a few events that lead up to or happened during my Vancouver Olympic adventure that seriously tested my luck however. I have listed the events as they happened. You can be the judge on just how lucky or unlucky I was πŸ™‚

Trip Rewind: Olympic Memories and Why I love the Olympics

Memories of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics
You couldn’t smack the smile off my face!

We are a few days into the 2014 Olympics in Sochi Russia. Unless you have been under a rock for a while it would be unlikely that you did not know that this spectacle was going on. And if you are in the United States, well I assume you have grown accustom to the fact that most of your television shows that you would be watching have been replaced with ice skating, ski jumping and speed skating!
