London Olympics 2012

You can now register your interest for tickets to the 2012 London Olympic Games here.
As a Londoner, I don't have any more chance than you do in acquiring tickets, even though Londoners have had a premium Olympic Tax added to their annual Council Tax bill. No doubt we shall suddenly become very popular with 'friends' needing B&B accommodation during the summer of 2012!!

People we know in Vancouver and Whistler made a FORTUNE by renting out their homes to people for the duration of the Olympics - or even a week or two!! You can charge a huge amount and companies etc abroad will pay it for their staff or guests etc - accommodation will be hard to find (My DH couldn't find any in Vancouver - some companies brought in cruise ships to port as extra 'hotels') so people were keen to find local families willing to move out and 'rent' their homes for the duration!!!

Just a thought anyway - you could plan to be away for the time it is on and make some GOOD money ;)

I'm sure they will be wonderful but unfortunately very expensive and Londoners will be paying for many years to cover all the expenses. It was a great experience for Canada and Canadians and I really think Vancouver did it "right".....Hugs
