So who's going to Sochi Russia in 2014?

After our experience in Whistler, I would imagine that the hardest part would be to find lodging. After that is arranged, a good time is guaranteed regardless of how many event tickets you initially start with. I wonder if Sochi will have enough lodging for everyone.

I plan on going, assuming I can gather the courage. There are quite a few "groups" in the area who generally aren't happy people.

There do seem to be quite a few hotel rooms in town. Sadly most are 2 star accomodations, and that's by Russian standards. A quick look at TA for Sochi shows three hotels without numerous negative remarks.

Then you have to get to Sochi. From the states it appears to be a flight requiring 3-4 connections.

Once there, they'll be so much to do outside the games. Such as.........

Can you imagine the language barriers. How many Sochi residents know English.

I still plan on going. I do not want to miss any Games.

Generally I am highly skeptical of most hotel reviews on TA. And I know I am not the only one. I totally ignore reviews by anyone with just a handful of reviews - too easy to be an "insider" or a competitor. Yes, it happens...all the time. Just do a search both on TA itself and in google.

Not sure if I will go to Sochi. If so, a lot of things would have to fall into place. My gut reaction is to save my money for more world cup and world championship events, which to me as a spectator are generally better.
