ice skating show

How we flew to Brazil to do ice shows just 2 weeks before our wedding...

Stephan and I had both been skaters for most of our lives. During our show career we both did pair skating as well, but we had never skated with each other before. When an opportunity to do an ice an ice show together in Brazil appeared we didn’t think twice. I moved from Rio to California and we had exactly 10 days to practice before we had to fly to Porto Alegre.

Well, we skated our hearts out for those days, put together two numbers, flew from Fresno to Porto Alegre, had a day and a half of rehearsals, did 6 shows, ran a 3 hour workshop with lots of brazilian skaters, and flew back to Fresno all within 8 days. By the time we were back we had about two weeks till our wedding... Can you tell we like when life is unpredictable?
