A FLYING BOY SCOUT

Just returned to Toon after three great weeks in Denmark catching up with family and friends – Lovely.
As I arrived in Newcastle so did the Olympic Circus along with the torch, which is currently traveling around England. Newcastle will host several Olympic sport events during the games and the city is currently getting a makeover to make it all look good. Thousands of people were gathered to see the torch arrive and entertainment by the quayside. Highlight of the event was the Discovery host Bear Grylls on a zip wire, so pretty lame event…

The famous pee-drinking survival expert and boy scout Bear Grylls had the honour of carrying the torch while ‘flying’ from the The Tyne Bridge to The Millennium Bridge on the Quay side of Newcastle.
