My amazing Aunt Andrea who resides in Paris, came to London for a few days for business, and so I spent some time with her while she was in my neck of the woods!
I met her at a very high class hotel near Tower Hill - and that was the first time I got to travel around London by myself, and made my way there! I was even LUCKY enough to meet the top man of Universal Sports, AND got to talk to him/ ask him questions for a few minutes. Definitely in the top 10 of coolest experiences.
That night she had two tickets to the beach volleyball final game, which was USA vs. USA. Words cant describe what kind of experience that was … the scenery was flawless, the atmosphere - perfect … and the feeling that came over me when we sang the National Anthem during the medal ceremony…sounds dumb..but I have never been more proud of my country! It was such a great two days.
Not to mention … we stayed in a very nice hotel … and the beds-I could have slept for probably two weeks straight they were so nice :)
It was a great visit, and a great experience…getting to know my aunt has been awesome.
