From 10 to 21 August 2004 I went to the Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, together with Micky, Karin, Wendy, Arjanna, Dorine, Wouter, Stephanie, and Lida.
Athens, Greece - Olympisch Games (August 2004)
We flew with Virgin Express from Brussels. Tickets for the events were obtained directly from the Olympic Organisation. Some additional tickets were bought in the Olympic Venues.
We slept in the house of Theo, a Greece artist married to a Dutch girl. The house was in the middle of the island of Aegina, reached by ferries and taxi/bus.
One day we went to Athens, to visit the Acropolis, the Parliament and the gardens with the Holland Heineken House.
We went to the 4 qualifying rounds of the Women's Artistic Gymnastics (15 August), the Team Finals (17 August) and the Individual Finals (19 August).
Further, we went to see Baseball (the Netherlands versus Canada, and Greece versus Taipei), Volleyball (the Netherlands versus USA and versus Brazil) and some Beachvolleyball qualifications.
In between, we stayed on the island for relaxing on the beach.
