two years

Needing to find a quick post for today so I can get back to work, I checked out my photo library to see what I was doing on this day in other years. Turns out that it was exactly two years ago that I was finishing my last day of work in Torino with NBC Olympics, and getting ready to start my first adventures around Europe. It seems like ages ago. It's funny how you look back on things like that - the Olympics gig was 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. It was exhausting, and every day on the way to work we asked each other why we ever agreed to do it, yet somehow you look back on it wistfully once its over. I spent those days living in a pretty barebones room in a former military hospital; a prime diet staple was Coke Light, chilled on the windowsill. But it was a fun time with a great crew of people, and as I say often, the trip following it was life-changing. No regrets.
