Something about ourselves
We are seeking 4 bedroom accommodation in New York between December 21st and mid to late January. My wife (Gail) has a dream of spending a white Xmas with our children. Melbourne is always warm during the Xmas period and the thought of having a cold white Xmas is something we wish to do before getting too old.
I am a retired CEO and amateur artist, my wife works part time for a charity and loves movies and the theatre. Our eldest son is an IT professional, our 2nd son has recently retired from the RAAF having served in Afghanistan, Kuwait and Iran. Our youngest son is studying accounting at University. Our party consists of 7 adults (inc our 3 sons and two girlfriends).
