We didn't get very far. Security is fierce and all rivers and roads approaching the Stadium are closed to traffic.We were stopped by our friendly Cardiff Bay Harbour Patrol who were ready to give chase if we decided to full throttle and do a James Bond manoeuvre up the river. Cardiff will host several football events during the games, hosting both women's and men's teams including Brazil, Mexico and Spain. The city is resplendent in Olympics spirit.
For us, we can't wait until the opening ceremony on Friday and we will both be glued to a TV screen for the next two weeks. We both love the Olympic spirit and watching the world come together to play. We shall also be praying to the weather gods for more of the same blue skies we have been enjoying over the past few days. Enjoy!
