Anyone here going to London 2012? Or been to a previous Olympics?

    Unsurprisingly, I've never been to an Olympics before, but I supposedly have tickets available to me for the footy, and something else with a different person but I cannot remember what. Also, the sailing is apparently pretty near to where I live, so I intend to pop down there for the day.

    The thing I like most about the Olympics is the global scale of it. I know that's the bloody point, but I remember being on the motorways during Euro 96 and seeing coachloads of Czechs and Swiss and Dutch and whathaveyou. I loved that.

    Now, I'm hoping this is just British self-deprecation, but is anyone else thinking the ceremony won't be as good as the Beijing one? I dunno, should be good regardless.

    So who's been/going?

    I'm not planning on attending in 2012 but I can't recommend it highly enough.
    I've been to the following Olympic Games
    Winter
    Sapporo Japan
    Lake Placid New York
    Calgary Canada
    Lilehammer Norway

    Summer
    Los Angeles California
    Barcelona Spain
    Atlanta Georgia

    It's an experience you will never forget but take a lot of money it's very expensive.
