Our attention has turned towards Rio, the host of the next Olympics in 2016

The one bad thing about the Olympics is you get completely amped watching it, then you have to wait a whole four years for it to come around again. Wait – maybe that’s what makes it so awesome. Either way, we’ve got withdrawal symptoms of Olympic proportions right now.

When thinking of things that might help us overcome our new found and no longer satiable desire for sports like swashbuckling and horse dancing our attention turned towards Rio, the host of the next Olympics in 2016.

Watching these videos and getting to know the next host city really helped – now we’re more excited about the next Games than we are sad about the end of London’s.

Brett hopes to one day reach the shores of far-flung Tristan da Cunha, the most remote of all the inhabited archipelagos on Earth…as to what he’ll do when he gets there, he hasn’t a clue. Over the last 10 years, London, New York, Cape Town and Pondicherry have all proudly been referred to as home. Now it’s Copenhagen’s turn, where he lends his travel expertise to momondo.com.
