I'm off to the Olympics today and hope to bring you regular updates on what it's like. My goal is to capture all aspects of the games, including the sporting events, venues, special transport issues for visitors and athletes and other unique happenings. I'm very excited to have this opportunity and am looking forward to sharing it all with you!
I also intend to report on some special day trips outside London. I will be visiting "Downton Abbey", more properly known as Highclere Castle, and Paris, too.
So, watch for posts later in the week. The greatest show on earth is calling!
