However, in doing our ongoing research about our upcoming British visit, there appears to be a rising surge of British pride. Last week's Queens Jubilee celebrations were so popular with Brits, both at home and those living abroad, that the upcoming Olympic games being held on home soil is a really big deal and a recent study by British Airways shows that many Britons are actively changing their holiday travel plans as the games get closer to be able to be on home soil to cheer on the British contingent of athletes.
With the opening ceremonies only 47 days away, it is going to be an interesting time to be in England. We spend our first eight days actually in London, but really we have no idea where we will be when the games actually begin. But even though we have no intention of going to the Olympics, I'm sure we will have an active interest in the games for the two weeks or so that they are on...no matter where we happen to be.
How much interest do you have in the upcoming games...?
