We went to the 2006 Winter Games in Torino, and it was one of the best experiences of my life. Everyone should go to the Olympics, so that they can get that feeling of being a part of the world as a whole. It is amazing to be in a place where pretty much everyone you meet is excited to be in that one spot – how often does that happen? I also recommend attending games outside of your home country; it helps you to better experience the games as a citizen of the world, as well as feel the full impact of the hospitality of the hosting country and its people. I’m looking forward to attending the 2010 games in Vancouver, as I’ll get all this with the benefit of a shorter plane ride!
