Looking for a buddy, anyone ?!?!?!

hey guys!

I'm also going to the games, and I'm looking for a Games' buddy (hence the title).

I'm gonna be in Vancouver for the last week of competitions, and I'll be staying one more week after the games to enjoy the city.

I'll buy my tickets in June, as soon as the sales open (I know, I decided to go last Christmas, so it was to late for the sale in November... I've been waiting since).

I'm a huge hockey, bobsleigh, curling (yeah, I get laughed at a lot for it, but guess what?! it's not about to change!!) and figure skating fan, and as such, those are the events I plan to go to. I like pretty much all winter sports, but those are my favorites, so I'm focussing on them for the games.

I do realise it's gonna be hard to get side by side tickets, but I'm looking for buddies to spend our free time between events together, to learn from each other and discuss the events we saw and are about to see, to go and grab a bite, to enjoy a night out, to talk about pretty much anything over a beer or a cofee, to simply enjoy the experience, to bask in the feeling, to... anything!!! as long as we meet and become buddies, friends, and had such a good time that when we go back home we stay in touch...

Cheers! and I hope to hear from you,

Hi Isabelle!

I'll be in Vancouver from the end of January till the end of March. I'm volunteering during the games at the Curling and hockey arenas. I also have my tickets for a few hockey games. Let me know if you're still going, I would be up for hanging out, looking around, go to a bar and watch a hockey game, etc.!

Take care,
