Farewell to the Bird's Nest, those dropped batons, beach volleyball, Michael Phelps mania, and that lip-synching little girl. If you have been going through Olympics withdrawal now that the spectacle is over, perhaps it's time to look toward London. What does it take to plan a visit when the Olympics take place there in 2012? You have some time to think it over; tickets to Olympic events don't go on sale until 2011. Some helpful websites inlcude: london2012.com, visitlondon.com, aboutbritain.com, visitbritain.com, and timeout.com.

In the meantime, watch this cool time-lapse video that captures the progress of the city's Olympic Stadium site (a rendering of what the stadium is supposed to look like when completed is at left).
