|Bryant Park - New York|
New York at Christmas was very magical. Work had enveloped us both from September to mid-December and we had been looking forward to this trip with much anticipation. Walking the streets and exploring the lights and markets. Two very different dance experiences as we spent a dumbfounded afternoon enjoying the Alvin Ailey American Dance Group Christmas performance. The next night took us to the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall which covered every possible holiday theme in the two hours we squirmed in the lavish balcony seats. We took in the views from Top of the Rock and Empire State Building. Laura, in typical fashion, had researched and planned many gluten-free food stops. Jennifer's Way Bakery, Colors NYC, Senza Gluten were checked off the list with Katz's Deli rounding it out with their three meat platter.
Early morning Christmas run up 5th Avenue, looping back around through Rockefeller Centre and Times Square.

Dubai, San Miguel, Boston, Costa Rica, New York and an 8,000 kilometre motorcycle tour of the Southern United States marked the personal adventures we tackled in 2016. Laura added on Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary and Winnipeg for her business trips. 2017 is only a week old and we are monitoring flights to San Miguel and Ljubljana on Hopper. Three week motorcycle tour of the Alps with our Australian friends looks to be another for the highlight reel and another first for countries we are going to visit. New backpacks, helmets and an updated International Drivers Licence are all in the works. One day at a time.
