Olympics...Sochi or Rio?

So I've been thinking that we should go to the Olympic games. I vaguely remember the '84 Olympics...I think it's time to make some new memories!

So my brief analysis has led me to believe that is actually a much closer decision than I had thought. I was certain that Rio would come out way ahead, I mean, it's Rio! But Sochi is also a resort city on the beach (though it will be winter). If NHL players are there, well, Hockey is a bigger draw that golf (yep, first time golf will be in the olympics!)...and crazy enough, it looks like it's cheaper to go to Russia than Brazil?

I'll keep dreaming :) Where will you be...


  1. Wouldn't Australia have been the first Summer Olympics in winter?

    1. Good question :) Apparently they were Sept 15- Oct. 1...early spring in Australia (from what I read!)

    2. Wow.. you're right. I never realized how inconsistent the starting of the Olympics is. It ranges from late July until the middle of September!

  2. Oh goodness, what a decision! I think I'd go with the awesome Summer in Winter, just because it's cool. :)
