Crazy Day in Norway

Went off for some fjord sightseeing today on a tour. It started by boat, and then returned by bus through a mountain pass. At one point, halfway up a steep climb, the bus stopped and we all disembarked for photos. But when we returned to the bus, the driver couldn't get it moving.

Who saved the day?

Me, kind of.

I was the only one with a phone that was able to get a signal in the area. (A small victory for the humbled Blackberry.) As a result, the driver was able to call the mechanic back at the shop and troubleshoot the issue. Thirty minutes later we were back on the road. Good times.

New photos of this adventure will be up soon, but in the meantime, here's my current Euro 2012 photo album (and we're off to Stockholm tomorrow)


My pre-tour workout in a tiny hotel gym stocked only with a cable stack:

1-leg squats
Cable Pull-thru
Bulgarian Split Squat
Cable abs
Ball curls

And don't miss out on TT Bootcamp Games. We used some of these in our workouts last weekend - Have more fun and get more results here

Glad I went on the tour and even more glad that I brought my phone,
