Okay, let’s talk openly for a minute: what is your thing that you just don’t enjoy, that you feel like most everyone in the world is totally into? My mom absolutely detests graduation ceremonies (too bad she had 4 kids!), my husband practically breaks out in hives if I suggest going to an Irish pub, and my girlfriend Michelle hates any and all sweets (seriously, who hates sweets?!)
And me? My thing is skiing. Now–I’ve tried skiing a handful of times over my life, and as much as I think I should like it (it’s a lifetime hobby! such good exercise! great for winter getaways!), none of these reasons are enough to convince me that I do, and at 32, I have accepted that I don’t–
probably never will–and that’s totally okay.
Besides being all self-accepting, it’s also okay because there’s an alternative winter “sport” that I do enjoy: tubing! So when the fam got together last weekend for a quickie day trip to the mountain, I hiked up my boots and got ready to tube! Here’s a little video. You guys proud of my ability to multi-task?;-)
Mountain Creek, New Jersey, is an hour north of NYC, easily accessible by car, or also Snow Buses right from the city! Seriously perfect for a day trip. Another bonus: at $25 for a 2 hour session, tubing is decidedly cheaper than skiing, too. Just saying;-)
Have you taken any seasonal getaways lately? Share below (as well as the thing you hate that everyone else loves!;-)
