I arrived in St. Pancras Station on the Eurostar from Paris yesterday — just one day before the Opening Ceremony. Olympic excitement was in the air!! There were dozens of helpers to direct people to events or simply explain how to buy a tube ticket.
You could feel the extra security in the train station and there were extra bobbies and policement to keep us safe.
In addition to the helpers there are easy-to-follow signs with indications to reach the many Olympic events locations around London.
It’s simple — any signs in pink are Olympics related!
Similar to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, there’s a wonderful feeling of celebration in the air. The BBC was interviewing some tourists in the station and I overheard: ‘We love England! Everyone has made us feel so welcome and we’re having a terrific time!’. The English sure know how to put on a wonderful event!
The directions couldn’t be better!
We managed to get 2 tickets to the men’s gymnastics finals next week and can’t wait to attend our first ever Olympic event. A brilliant job Team Britain … and let the games begin!
