I've just recently enrolled myself to the Gym. I want to burn lots of calories in my stomach.IP FreelyMember@ip-freelyJoin Date: 2008Post Count: 353
I try to do as little as possible.
But I also lurve my skiing – over 1.5m at Falls Creek & still falling. I feel another property inspection coming on.M.InvestigatorMember@m.investigatorJoin Date: 2012Post Count: 134
I looove to travel, but I tend to like doing longer stints of travel as well as do some volunteer work when I can. Travel and volunteer work are what I'm really passionate about.
The last 3 places where I travelled for a longer-than-average period of time were Bangladesh, Thailand and Taiwan.
Other hobbies I have are doing Body Combat classes, and other martial arts classes, and gym training.
I also enjoy learning languages. I've been learning French and Chinese over the past few years.
Bonjour a tous!

I can match that:
I try to do as little as possible.
I also try to spend as much time with Mrs Dubs, and we also like to travel the world.kentotooleMember@kentotooleJoin Date: 2012Post Count: 19
During weekends, I tend to go fishing or mountain climbing with my friends.CatalystParticipant@catalystJoin Date: 2008Post Count: 1,404jim64 wrote:I get my release from restoring cars,being a Holden boy,the collection includes only classic cars of the 1970,s.Have a HQ SS,HX Sandman ute,HJ Sandman van,HZ Monaro,HJ Monaro,HQ Coupe.I have a bloody big shed!!!!!!

I spend my time doing a drawing portrait of random people when I'm not busy at work while drinking beer too:)mick64Participant@mick64Join Date: 2012Post Count: 45
I like combining scuba diving and travel…..have a few os trips under my belt and hoping to purchase ip's at good dive sites around the country.jasonbentlyMember@jasonbentlyJoin Date: 2012Post Count: 11
Outdoor adventure is pretty much my hobby. I love climbing up on mountains and setting up a tent and grilling meat in the middle of the sunny day. That's what I do in my free time.rusty05Member@rusty05Join Date: 2011Post Count: 94
It always intrigues me what makes people tick. We've just bought the small farm I grew up on. I'm absolutely passionate about it and it's where I can be myself, take the tie off after work and start to de-stress by jumping on the tractor or motorbike, talking to the cows, or just admiring the sunset with a nice cool beer in hand!
It's run as a business and while the tax deductions are fantastic its more of a lifestyle choice really. My mates think I'm mad working like a crazy person for little or no return but it keeps me sane… sort of! Mind you sometimes I reckon those people who spend all Sunday reading the paper and drinking coffee are onto somethingJT7Member@jt7Join Date: 2010Post Count: 286
I try keeping up with my 3 boys 5,3 and 2.
I put the toys away at least 10 times a day, and that's after I come home from work lol.
At least I know if I lost my job I'd be able to pick up employment as a butler somewhere.
You're onto something Rusty……..Reading the paper and coffee on Sunday is my 'me time' at the moment.

I develop Property and buy commercial property in the United States. My hobby and passion is politics I loved watching the US elections not so much the result. I also follow Australian politics used to be very actively involved and still follow very closely. Of course politics is also important for what I do. My daughter is also blessed with a great sing voice she is 13 so I spend a lot of my time encouraging her and my 10 year old has just joined the black belt club for Karate which is for people wanting to fast track to a black belt. So all these things keep me busyRichard TaylorParticipant@qlds007Join Date: 2003Post Count: 12,024
Must admit i am soccer tragic and have spent 44 years following my home own team of Bournemouth who have made it to the Championship for the 2nd time in their history.
Knocking at the door of possible Premium League play off and trust me i will be there for these games if it happens.
Don't worry always take the laptop so will answering emails whilst i am in the UK.
Other than that travel. Still have around 84 countries i haven't been to but plan to knock them off over the next few years.
Mountain biking and golf are also pretty up there as well as fine dining. Got a little restaurant in Williamstown i love visiting every time i am down in Melbourne.

I tend to take the family on an overseas trip once or twice a year, but since my wife only sleeps under '5-stars' and likes to lay flat on flights it can get quite expensive! So, I'm trying to cut back on the travel bit for the next few years, however, having my 2nd child due in a few weeks will certainly help that. I also play sport, at least 4-5 games of something a week, and so far my knees are holding up.
I do work a lot, and again, I'm cutting back on that, and have taken 3 months leave from my 2nd job. Well, that's not true, I've just taken leave from the travel component, which means that I won't be traveling with 'work' for the first time in 15 years!
Weirdly, I like learning, so I find myself looking up lessons on MIT Open Courseware (FYI – MIT have quite a few FREE online courses that anyone can do), or actually doing another course at uni to keep myself distracted from my day job.Adrian CahillParticipant@adriannqldJoin Date: 2003Post Count: 128
I’ve traveled around the world a lot. I’ve been blessed with two legs and a good passport. Even if I had a ‘bad’ passport, I would never let that stop me from traveling. I have now entered a total of over 70 countries, 4-5 years travel outside Australia and learned the basics of few languages. I’ve met thousands of amazing people around the world. It’s astonishing to me, the way that by simply being open, warm and welcoming to people, that they return the same qualities and can become memorable friends.Jamie MooreParticipant@jamie-mJoin Date: 2010Post Count: 5,069
I’m mildly obsessed with photography at the moment. I purchased my first decent SLR a little while ago and it’s turned into an expensive hobby.

I play indoor cricket. It’s great because everyone gets a go, not like the schoolyard days. Even though I bowl pies you don;t have to go fetch because of the net.

Thought I’d share a link that shows me combining my two hobbies: property investing and surfing.
Within I detail my latest investment and provide a snapshot of the infrastructure to come at this neat little pocket on the QLD coast.
