Travel Thoughts – Jersey

*I had no idea Newark was so close to NYC. Next time I’ll come early to mingle/dance/shop.

*Yay for getting to spend 4 hours in NYC!
*Thank you, Lululemon Soho for my new black Dance Studio II pants. Love them.
*NJ has was too many toll booths on the Turnpike.
*They should have signs that tell you how much moo-lah you’re gonna have to fork over.
*Good thing I paid for our dinner with my card and Marcus gave me cash, or else I would not have even had $ for the tolls. Whew!
*Why the heck are there SO MANY forks in the road here? There’s one every mile, I swear.
*I’d heard this myth that in NJ the attendants pump your gas for you.
*It’s not a myth, it’s true! What’s the etiquette here? Do you tip them?
*Trip alert texts are awesome to tell you your flight has been delayed.
*Except for when they lie. It’s a good thing I went to the gate anyway. Flight on time. Whew.
*People in NJ are surprisingly nicer than I would have imagined.
*Love the spin class poster at the gym: “Ride it like you stole it!” Clever and witty.
*The trainers I trained this weekend are awesome. My job rules.
*The Mercury Milan is a really nice rental car: heated seats and a TON of buttons to push. Yes!
*Drawback: too many buttons make it difficult to find the button you need, while driving.
*I think the lady at the Avis counter exploited the fact that she has a foreign accent.
*One car, one day + 3 hours +a ton of coverage I didn’t ask for = $364. Bitch.
*My plane didn’t crash. Success.
*Back home with my boys. Sweet.
*Boston this weekend. Bring it.

See EVERYTHING in one day.

Boston, MA and Newark, NJ

When I teach the TRX certifications in different cities it’s a whirlwind. I fly in, go to sleep, teach the next day, then fly out that night. Yes, I get to go to a lot of cool cities, but a few hours here and there leaves me without a lot of time for seein’ the sights. BUT on my next two trips, I’m flying in a bit early so I have an ENTIRE day to see stuff. What do I SEE though?!

Today, I’m enlisting the help of you, readers. If you’ve ever been to/lived in Newark/Bayville, New Jersey, let me know what I could do there.
AND if you’ve ever been to/lived in Boston/Beverly Massachusetts, let me know what I HAVE to see here. There are obviously 1,001 things that I know of to do in Boston, but I’ve never been, and only have 1 day of roaming before I have to skirt out.
Now, I can totally go online and google everything that I need, but I want to hear some first-hand knowledge from you. Your job is to make my stay enjoyable and worthwhile (see how I just gave you a job? And you were trying to sit back, relax, and be entertained by reading blogs). So think of things to do and then tell them to me! Impress me with your worldly experiences! Go! I’ll be here waiting…
All joking aside, I’d appreciate it. Thanks buddies, in advance! ; )
