Almost two years ago I sat in front of the television watching the Olympics in Beijing. It was wet, very wet and the cyclists were suffering as they made their way around the course that led around the Great Wall. But it was such a striking image; fit athletes, stunning scenery and horrendous weather. It contrasted starkly with me; I was sitting on the sofa, mid-way though the summer holidays with nothing planned to occupy my time between the end of school at the end of July and the start of school in September.
Good luck mate! Sorry I wasnt able to meet up in London – I had about 20 things I wanted to do and did about 5 of them… this all equates to a return next year I think!
