    Oh my goodness, I've been waiting so long for this and it's finally time! I'm off tomorrow (with a coachload of kids from school), down to London. We're getting to go to the Velodrome and the Olympic park! It's a test event to see how security and facilities work for the olympics.

    We've been lucky to get tickets for the olympics in the summer, but not at the main stadium, so it'll be amazing to see it tomorrow.

    Can't say I'm looking forward to the 3am start but I hope it'll be worth it! We're not due to get back to school till 10pm tomorrow so I do feel a bit sorry for my class on Thursday :lol:

    3 AM!!! I won't even get up at that hour to go to WDW. My favorite airline always had an 11 am flight. It was great. Now, plans for a merge with another. This time I had 2 choices. 6 am which means at the airport by 4 am. Or 6 pm. We are doing later flight.

    Seriously, hope you have a great time!

    Couple of photos for you.

    This is the velodrome, we were two rows from the front, amazing! If I'd sneezed I'd have knocked them all over :lol:

    Then we moved on to the Olympic stadium itself in the afternoon, we were only 4 rows from the front there. We had an incredible view of the pole vault.

    If anyone is interested in more photos I can put some on :yes:
