    With the Summer Olympics coming up in London, travel to the English city will soon pick up and everyone is getting in on the excitement. The Summer Games is going to give London Tourism a boost and travelers will be looking for a place to stay.
    Why not stay in a taxi? It's possible. And it's cheaper than most hotels. A London taxi driver has turned his car into a moving hotel room for the Olympics.
    Even though tourism will pick up around the Olympics, taxi drivers are not expecting to make much as they will not be able to use lanes and roads that are reserved for those involved in the games, the Daily Mail reports. However, one cab driver is finding a way to make some extra cash while still using his cab.

    I like the ingenuity. Just don't park it outside of Buckingham Palace or they might blow up his taxi and guest.
