Looking Back : Vancouver 2010 Olympics

Since we lost our blog posts from before, I wanted to do some posts looking back to some fun things we did in the past few years.

[ February, 2010 ]

The London Summer Olympics Games are coming up soon so I thought i'd start off with our experience during the Vancouver 2012 Winter Olympic Games.   This was such an amazing time for Vancouver and Canada as a whole.  The atmosphere in Vancouver was crazy!  The city was packed with people from all over the world enjoying what the city had to offer.  I've never experienced so much patriotism.  It was not unusual to break out and sing the national anthem at least once a day with complete strangers :)

Stewart was able to purchase tickets for Canada vs. Switzerland in hockey.  It was an intense game!! It went into a shoot out with Sidney Crosby scoring the winning goal. 

Tasha and I really wanted to go to the opening ceremony and were seriously contemplating paying $600/ticket for this once in a lifetime opportunity.  However, we could never pull the trigger on actually buying the tickets because $600 is alot of money for us.  At that time, I was working at Grouse Mountain and they were having a contest to win tickets to the Opening Cermony's!  Whoever could sell the most of this certain wine in a given time period would be able to go or sell them as some other servers were wanting to do.  Well I won them and it was amazing!!!! The best contest I could have ever won.  My sister and I ended up going and it was awesome. 

Good times :)

Stewart and I are hoping to go to the Summer Games in Brazil!  That would be really awesome too.
