|Is that sunshine I see?|
|The countdown to London 2012 begins.|
|And just in case anyone was wondering what the weather was going to be like...|
|Everyone got into the Olympic spirit.|
Having just travelled the world and spent time seeing the highlights of other countries, it was so nice to see so many different nationalities enjoying ours. The fans from each country were brilliant and everyone made such a big effort to dress up in their country's colours. Although I think top marks would go to the Dutch fans who stood out a mile in their orange outfits and could start a chant going in a venue with just two of them. In a weird way it actually felt a bit like travelling, with everyone speaking to everyone and just a general feeling of happiness in the air.
As we all know, "sporty" is not a word which would ever be used to describe me but even those who didn't know the first thing about sport couldn't help getting caught up in the excitement. We had two day passes to the park to watch basketball and hockey matches, which were both brilliant, and we spent the rest of our time sitting out in the sun watching the action on big screens. The atmosphere when Team GB won a medal was unreal.

It really was the perfect way to end my trip. I was back home, seeing my home country at its absolute best, with the people I love the most. Which totally proves what I've always believed: It's brilliant fun travelling the world, but it's always good to come home.
