'The Golden Couple'

Sascha Kindred and Nyree Lewis, otherwise known as the 'golden couple' of disabled sport, are two of Great Britain's most successful paralympians of the last decade, amassing 20 Paralympic medals between them including an amazing 8 golds. I am the brother of Sascha and am tracking their progress from Athens 2004 to London 2012. Read about their journey to Paralympic Glory here!

Going to Beijing?

Now if you're like me and pretty organised, you're probably already wondering what to buy your parents or your kids for Christmas, or maybe even planning your holiday for the year 2040 when a trip to the moon will possibly be the number one holiday destination. Well ok, maybe that's just being stupid, however, it might be time to start considering whether you and your friends or family might actually go along to watch and support our athletes at the games in Beijing next year.

Undoubtedly if you are, there will be many questions that you're asking yourself like, 'can we really afford it', 'will other people be going', 'doesn't it look a long way', or most importantly, 'will they serve us fish and chips over there' (there are always a few aren't there!).

Well, if you are one of these people, or a group of people who are interested in going to Beijing, I will be going to with a number of friends of mine, a few of which went to Athens in 2004. As we've been before, we know a little bit about what to expect and how exciting the games are, however, there will of course be a number of things we will need to investigate before going to Beijing just like you.

Therefore, I have created a new blog called 'Going 2 Beijing' which you can find at 'www.going2beijing.blogspot.com'. This site will basically tell you all about our preparation for our trip to Beijing and will hopefully give a little advice about the trip, whether you're planning to go just for a few days, or for a couple of weeks with a holiday mixed in with it for good measure.

Please do take a look now and again. It is unlikely that much will happen over the next few months, but I will let you all know about or plans and where we are looking for flights, hotels, etc. As from approximately September things are likely to pick up as this is when flights will start to become available etc.

Also, if you have any questions or information, I would encourage you to email me at kindredtk@hotmail.com, or alternatively leave a comment for you. I would be happy to post blogs from other people and attribute them to you so feel to write as much as possible. If you've found some great that everyone must go to while in Beijing, then let me know!

Anyway, good luck and we'll see you there! Timo
