In a new survey, the over-50s say they are becoming more daring, trying new things like new hobbies and new projects. Some say they are trying more things than they did before. Some say they are ready to take on new challenges at this stage in life. Many say they still feel young, even those over the age of 75.
Some of the hobbies include hang-gliding, writing a book, learning a language.
I’d very much like to travel around The UK, largely by train, I get itchy feet every time I watch Michael Portillo’s journeys on the box. There’s so much to discover from churches to cathedrals, fishing, hiking, country pubs…the list is endless. I need more years and a much healthier bank account
I suppose that I have done that and been there. A lot of my travels were on business so I was actually paid to do the travelling. And it did allow me to visit quite a few places I might not have been. Edinburgh with the castle, York Minster, St Albans abbey and a few others on the way.
I’ve think I’ve covered most of the things that interested me over the course of 72 years, so now I like to just sit back with a hot mug of Yorkshire tea in my hand, write on the forum, and take life easy. Sample some of the things that I may have missed while rushing off here and there, and didn’t take the time to really notice some of the simple things…
Nice post, Mr Fox. I think we all have missed things what we could have enjoyed. I travelled a lot, enjoyed it but it was a fast life it times. I have slowed to a snail pace - and sometimes I look a bit longer at things. I take photographs for a hobby and I can take the time for the moment.
