Travel Diary : Winter Olympics in Sochi : Day one

Got back from the Olympics in Sochi not too long ago.

In Sochi, I stayed at Grand Holiday which is docked at Adler Port (It is located beside the Olympics Village)
From the airport, we had to take a train to Adler Train Station from there we took the M6 bus to Pitsefabrika stop. We had to walk about 15 minutes to the ship.

The security to the ship is strict. I had to go through multiple scans and I was given a port pass and also a cruise pass.

The grand holiday ship.

On that day I was in a rush I arrived the ship at 5.30pm and the women's short programme starts at 7.00pm.
I had to rush my way to the Skating Palace.

From Adler Port to Olympic Village Train Station takes about 25 mins and then you take a train to Olympic Park. Into the Olympic Park, the walk to Iceberg Skating Palace is 15 mins.

It is a hefty walk.

The event ended at 11.30pm. By the time I reached the ship. It is about 1am. Luckily buffet dinner runs till 2am.
I was dead flat and tired.
