London 2012 Olympics: doesn’t get better than this

As the days wrap up and my time in London comes to a close, I have to give a special, warm thank you to the London 2012 Olympics for letting me go out with a bang.

Usually I’m devastated at the end of my overseas traveling, with the looming flight ahead signaling vacation is over and it’s back to reality. But having the London 2012 Olympics (with tickets to the Mexico football game again last night) finish up my Ooh La La adventuring makes it slightly easier, because honestly, nothing tops the Olympics. Not even a shopping spree at Harrod’s (although I wouldn’t be opposed to having both … ?).

Mix the greatest games on Earth with celebrating the royal family (in person!), an unbeatable internship (where I met Bill Clinton at an event my first week!), climbing to the top of one of my favorite countries, and everything else, and I think I can dub this a success.

Oh, and (somehow) the best is still yet to come. In the 72 hours I have before boarding that Virgin Atlantic beauty, I’ll be cheering on the U.S. Women’s National Team in the Women’s Football Finals tomorrow at Wembley, and celebrating the end to a great summer at the Great British Beer Festival on Friday.

At some point I hope to sit down (maybe pack?) and grasp how unbelievable this all has been, but that can wait. My focus now is cheering on my favorite USA team to a well-deserved Olympic gold medal. #USA.
