This year’s London Olympics will no doubt be one of the world’s greatest attractions, bringing together people and cultures from all over the globe in order to witness the world’s most elite athletes compete for gold medals.
For starters, London has already successfully hosted the Olympic Games on two occasions: in the years 1908 and 1948. Now the city will boast the most modern sports infrastructure of the planet, with tracks and stadiums that will be packed with the latest technological advancements. These range from world-class medical facilities to ultra high-definition cameras and high-sensitivity movement sensors. On top of this, thanks to the dramatic evolution of global communications, these will be the first Olympic Games that almost everyone in the world will be able to experience in full via popular social media platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter.
But, while the Olympics are an unparalleled venue to bring together entire countries, can we say the same about couples? The answer is a definite yes. Here are a few tips and reasons for you and your significant other to enjoy the Olympics- and strengthen your bond while you do it!
Great reason to learn about London
London is considered one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. It is also one of the most romantic, offering visitors amazing sites, vistas and attractions–the Thames River, the Tower of London, Windsor and Stonehenge, to name a few–all of which normally receive dozens of millions of tourists every year. So why not use the Olympic Games as a pretext to know and learn more about this beautiful city? If you are lucky enough to be there with your partner, you will no doubt find terrific places to visit together. If you both are still on the other side of the pond then you will still be able to visit some of the city’s best locations thanks to the magic of HDTV.
Have you ever wanted to exercise together?
Have you or your partner ever wanted to play some sports together but never found the time or the mood for it? What better reason than the Olympic Games to put on your workout clothes and feel the spirit of the most popular sports by going jogging, swimming and playing any other sport together. You will both feel energized and glad to be doing something healthy and fun together. (Not to mention, you’ll both be grateful of the noticeable improvements that exercising will bring to your sex life!)
This one works regardless if you both are from separate countries. Both of you can take this opportunity to dress in your country’s colors and cheer together for your teams. And if each of you supports a different country, then you can have even more fun by teasing one another! All while sharing Friendship, Respect and Excellence – the true values of the Olympics.
Enjoy some London local food, even if you are not there
One of the great aspects of London is its terrific cuisine, making it the culinary capital of the country. This provides the perfect opportunity for you and your partner to cook some popular local dishes, such as Pie and Mash or Sunday Roast. You will not only enjoy a treat, but will also find that eating local is one of the best ways to get into the Olympic Spirit.
Spend a romantic getaway in a top class hotel
Who says that the Olympic Games can’t be romantic? Just imagine booking a room with a beautiful view in a great hotel. Once in it, you and your partner can enjoy the Olympics on TV feeling the center of the action. After the day’s events are over, you can focus on each other and create an unforgettable Olympic vacation without even being in London.
As you can see, the city of London will not only be a perfect venue for the 2012′s Olympics- it will also provide plenty of opportunities for couples to become closer. All you need is somewhere to watch the sports events together and a team to root for. You won’t believe how close you will feel to each other when you share the rush of seeing your favorite team win the gold.
