The Irish House during the Olympics 2012
Travel Culture Magazine
published my piece on what turned out to be the only one of the many fabled Olympics houses that I managed to visit during Summer 2012. I'd like to blame my extended travel writing trip to Abu Dhabi and the Maldives, but the fact that New Zealand's Kiwi House managed to burn down thanks to a maverick gas canister certainly didn't help.
Our children were very taken with the upside-down room, complete with monopoly board, ping pong bats and lamps all glued to the ceiling. Let's be honest, I was very taken with it, too. I'm planning a trip back to the Big Chill soon, because the events schedule there always punches well above its weight.
