Robert Unger, who toured with Holiday On Ice and other ice shows for a total of nearly 15 years, considered the opportunity to travel around the world “a great education.”

It gave him a great perspective on the world, learning about other cultures and about history.  He felt that this experience made him more “a part of the world.”

His advice to young show skaters is to concentrate on seeing the sights, learning something about each city.  Read about the history of each place you visit.  Save your money by avoiding too much late night partying.   You can still enjoy yourself, but don’t restrict your sight-seeing to the bars in each town!
