    I imagine many of you have plenty of free time. What do you do with your time? Can you let me know when replying what country you pursue your activities? Thanks

    Hi Cibaris

    We like to cycle, nothing too serious, mountain bike for the tracks or tandem for the road, it's a good way to see the area and useful to get to the shops.

    Wherever we are touring at the time but we try to stay in the sunshine.

    Welcome to FUN by the way.

    Skiing is my thing (it's why we have the van, 4 weeks each trip), normally go to Italy but have tried the other European resorts.

    After skiing it's my interest in RS Fords, have had a few currently waiting delivery of a MK3 RS Focus. No better place than the Lake District for a good run.

    off roading in morocco or spain . ,motorbike riding ,surfing , snorkelling . just nosing around national parks looking at the animals and birds .
    never use toll roads or m,ways ,avoid duall carriageways so going through small villages you just dont know what where or what you will be spending the day doing . much more fun in villages . the best places arent in guide books or holiday books .

    UK only at the moment.
    Also at the moment, our activity/ pursuit is: Walking, walking, and more walking.
    Which then lets us enjoy wildlife, see fabulous vistas, meet people, enjoy small villages, get into towns, visit historical sites, travel along riversides and canal towpaths, have a drink with a meal out, experience all weathers, stay fit, take some lovely (and some hopeless) photographs, write up the day in a diary, have fabulous picnics, etc etc etc
    Oh, and I do Mo & Dryad's quiz when I have internet access (y)

    I'm partial to a bit of sea fishing. First trip this season is tomorrow and I have set myself the challenge of catching a Cod that will beat my previous record of 8.5lbs. If I am not on here posting pictures of the big'un tomorrow night you will know I am at the pub sulking!

    I'd like to say something amazing like exploring deep space, however think most of that seems to have taken up residence, it can fir into quite a small space on earth since as you know space esp black holes is well known for appearing tiny - yet actually really being bigger than we have vocabulary or any other means to express. However despite that I manage to still read, do crosswords, drive Pete nuts and help moderate an internet forum amongst other things! UK based, but I often do the Xwords, the reading and annoying my husband - wherever in the world we may happen to be at the time.

    We both spend a lot of time visiting various buildings since we've been members of the NT for years and also the NHS owns any number of places which we visit far too often these days, but visiting the vast majority them is an absolutely lousy hobby for anyone, I wish we'd never started doing it and I'd never suggest anyone else take it up until they have to! (but if that actually happens - go there immediately, do not pass Go and don't collect £200, please!)

    Climbing, including via ferratas, cycling (roads and mountain bikes), walking, running, orieteering. Mostly done in Spain in the winter but can be anywhere in the summer depending where an interesting orienteering competition is being held, we can fit everything else in around it. Have been to Canada, NZ, Australia, Italy, Slovenia ........... and many other European countries and now have many friends from all over the world.

    Skiing - also why we bought the van this year - skied in the central massif France out of it in March.
    We also walk a lot and visit museums and anything else of interest .
    I carry a full size weighted keyboard in the van and play most days and also am dabbling in water colours and try to paint what I see out the window or from a photo I've taken that day.
    My husband juggles and plays chess on line and we cycle together whenever we can. We play scrabble and watch TV or films we've copied. Even though we drive a lot we seem to have more time to do these things on the road than we do at home.
