Bye London 2012, Hello Rio 2016!

Happy Sunday!

Along with almost everyone else, I'm kinda sad that the Olympics are now over... but, hey, it's Shark Week, haha! ;)

I definitely enjoyed watching the Closing Ceremony, though...

  14. I really didn't think I would enjoy the Olympics, at all. What with all the hype - I thought it was going to be a complete let down. But boy, was I wrong! I was hooked after watching the opening ceremony!
    I got to see the Olympic village being built as I passed by on a train to London! And I see that you love London, and would be so excited if you were to visit and share your experience on here! X
