When My Baby Smiles at me I go to Rio

My friend Stacey lives in Geraldton, the town that I grew up in and she is currently on a round the world – “Trip of Lifetime” that has taken in quite a few US states and being a volunteer at the Rio Olympics!


Not only did she mingle with some of her all time sporting heroes – basketball being her sport of choice, but she also got to hold the Australian flag at one of the games.


Dreams coming true – that’s what it’s all about – like meeting Andrew Gaze (Australian all time basketballing legend)


There was one day that I could catch up with Stacey in London – the day she flew in from Rio – so jet lag begone and I made my way into the city to meet her for some dinner and Olympic stories….

I went past the usual haunts to get to her hotel…

London Eye


Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament – double decker London bus for good measure


Westminster Abbey


Then I sat in Green Park, like a local Londoner in the 30 degree heat wave and waited to hear if she had gotten off the plane yet.


Then catch up we did….. Not nearly enough time for all the stories though.

Well done to you Stace – living the dream!
