Once in a while I need to jolt my life by taking on an entirely new enterprise outside of my day job. Last year, I became a tour guide at The Old North Church. I am a Boston history buff and relished the idea of spending time at this important landmark in American history.
I learned the five-minute spiel and recited it whenever 10 or more tourists walked through the doors.
The best part of the experience was all the facts I learned! Here are a few:
Foreigners tip way better than Americans
English people are really forgiving
The view of Boston from the steeple really rocks
Oh, and the historical facts I learned, well…ah, I’ll save that for another post.
