GOSH! I’m not dreaming….In Rio

Proud to get this stamp

First impressions don’t always count – on landing at Galeão Airport, in Rio de Janeiro, only to discover that the arranged lift was not available. This led to a journey off over 2 hours with a taxi driver that couldn’t speak English, taking a route that was hard to digest and it still holds a lasting impression in my mind.  it was also the opening ceremony night in the Maracanã Stadium, Rio de Janeiro and the realisation that attending was not to be …..

GOSH – was not expecting to have this vision of Brazil on route from the airport to our  hotel ….

The start of a Rio experience is like a dream: but I am not dreaming….

Gosh – here in Rio for the Paralympic Games and intending to visit seven events!

Feeling like a millionaire, safe and surrounded by so many great athletes – how amazing is that!

Torch Ceremony

An Incredible day and night as Stoke Mandeville Stadium when the Paralympic Carnival came to town and the Heritage Flame was lit to signify the final countdown to the Paralympic Games in Rio!
