I'm including this because it's a good example of something I've been able to experience which I never thought I would!
The atmosphere was electrifying in the arena and the Olympic Park itself was a great place to be.
I woke up ay 5 am !! (very rare for me) and arrived at the Park in plenty of time to have a look around and to queue up to fill my water bottle! It's a very special place, not even counting the biggest McDonald's in Europe. We basically stayed all day and watched other venues on the big screens dotted around the really nicely-landscaped parts of the park. The flowers were as stunning as the big screens!
