    Just a thought on all the tours that Max and Tanya have been involved in, remember they are several years older than the other Russian skaters (even Ksenia and Fedor who are in their early twenties) and the I imagine that Adelina, Yulia and Maksim Kovtun are all supported by their families for the most part. This may be the only way for Max and Tanya to get an income for the next several months while they are traveling to New York for training/choreography and training in Russia. Plus with the Grand Prix tours starting in the last 10 weeks of the year they'll need a bit of money to support themselves before then.

    Edit: also I think it's sweet that Max liked the Ernest Hemmingway quote. It's like a silent confirmation of his love... awwww
    And I'm ready for vacation pictures!!!!

    Don't they get a permanent salary from the government? I thought being an athlete (and a successful one) in Russia is very reputed- I mean, if the government paid for their vacations they probably wouldn't let them starve.

    Max is just sneaky like that. I think when it comes to declaring his love he gets very shy, especially when asked about it publicly. So often I see him turn to Tanya for help during interviews, so maybe it's easier for him just to like pics on IG and hope we notice.

    - If they don't upload cute-vacation-pics I'm gonna ban them from next season.

    ah interesting, I didn't know that. They also look like they strive for a "plushy" lifestyle also. Mercedes, Gucci, Luis Vitton. I don't mean that they are living beyond their means. I think they work really hard for their money and like to have some extra on the side for a higher lifestyle... and one day a house

    Yeah, but if you look at their photos you'll see that the cars they drive now were a gift after the Olympic medal, before they had a Mercedes but not an expensive one and their Gucci and LV items are not that many. They wear clothes that I saw them wear 4 years ago. Honestly, they're far from the Plushenkos and I like that.

    As for money from shows it's very understandable, even if they get paid for trainings and coaches by the federation they must think about the future and get some money now when they're on top of the world. Hopefully they'll buy a nice house.

    And regarding how much they love each other I say they both do it at the same level, sometimes she's the one who looks more into him and sometimes he's the one more into her. I still can't forget their very public Closing ceremony kiss.

    I noticed that they changed their bows to the crowd (don't know how to call it. lol). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bW7kTPW5PhY

    It's kinda similar to how Max used to do it with Maria after their programs, when she skates forwards and bows down.
    With Maria it looked as if she wanted to be the star of the show, always in the spotlights. You can clearly see Maxim's beaming face in this video- it's like he's presenting his lady with such pride and admiration.

    I came across these over Easter, but keep forgetting to post them, so sorry changing the subject rather abruptly:
    2012 AOI in Shanghai with Li Yuchun http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFnrF_-GUgc (15:15 and 1:11:21)
    2011 AOI Shanghai with Lang Lang http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/RCw3SaGKP5w/ (this takes FOREVER to load. I had to give it 10-15 minutes before it started reacting)

    Anyway, I agree with annafer they're probably doing all these shows to get some spare cash and save up for the future (and so that Max can buy Tanya a nice ring if he hasn't done so already)

    GOOD HEAVENS! I certainly will. I even know how to get there.... (I made one trip to watch Elena Bereshnaya and Anton Sikharudlize practice.....) Do you know WHEN they might be coming? HOW are you able to learn these amazing bits of information? I'm flabbergasted.

    Depending on the shows schedule I imagine they'll be out in June for a few weeks. In the past they've worked with a choreographer and had medical appts. I believe they were in the same place in 2012 and 2013. I'm sure they'll start posting on IG and it won't be too hard to find out. Looks like skatefan02 has a bit more info on the location

    Edit: Like REALLY ready for new beach photos now
    Just read all of skatefan02's info above and knows way more about it... if only Nikolai's family was in Los Angeles. SO JEALOUS!

I mean I'm sure she's crazy about him, but I sense an abundance of feelings from Max. As I think SkateFan 02 once said, Max has been through a lot and he knows what he's got now. He waited and now it is his. And he perhaps can't even believe he's found such happiness sometimes...
    I´m sure it has to do with Maxim being through so much. We all know he had admired her for quite some time (anybody know how long?) before they started to skate together. He was so unhappy in his partnership with Maria. I´m sure it was the dream of his life back then to skate with Tanya. Then he got the chance. The more his partnership with Tanya progressed, the more his eyes started to shine and he became SO expressive. The dream of his life soon also became the love of his life. Now he always describes himself as the happiest man on earth thanks to Tanya. OMG I´m almost crying His story is really touching!
