What Are Your Hobbies Other Than Aviation?

Mon Apr 30, 2007 11:58 am

For me, I've shown horses (Morgans and American Saddlebreds) all since I was about 5 and I've played and studied classical piano since I was 6.

Here's a video of me showing at the New England Regional Morgan Horse show:



And here's a close up pic of me riding the same horse in the video winning the roses at the Morgan Horse Grand National and World Championship Show:



Here's an image of me on a different horse at the same show:



And here's a pic of me playing the piano:



And here's a video (not of me) of the Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2 in C-minor that I'm currently working on with my professor, Tatiana Kuleshova at the University of Central Oklahoma. She studied at the Moscow Conservatory and her father is the world renowned pianist, Valery Kuleshov, also of the Moscow Conservatory and silver medalist at the National Van Cliburn festival held in the US.




So what are your hobbies other than aviation?

Traveling. My only problem is I can't find a travel buddy to go to far off places I want to see. For instance, I want to go to Australia but none of my friends want to go. I want to do a cruise down to Mexico but no one will go. It kinda pisses me off.

Surfding when I am home, running, hiking, relaxing outdoors, street luging, baseball, reading books that do not have to do with class work.

I know, the only travel buddy I have is a girl that lives in Chicago, but when we travel, we have an awesome time. We went to Japan last year and had a great time. Not sure what we've planned for this year. We were going to Dubai in March but we had to cancel our plans and my "half" refundable ticket due to scheduling problems. Sad Oh well, guess we might try and do it sometime later on.

Yeah same problem here too, you should see my friends faces when I ask them to go on holiday to Syria, or Iran...!

For a while I just had far too many hobbies, but I have sort of cut down a bit, so my main ones are now as follows,in no particular order;

Mountain Biking
Photography (not just aviation, in fact hardly at all)
Travelling - always attempting to get on old and interesting airlines/aircraft
Badminton
Cricket
Model Railways
Music
Gardening/DIY

the west coast eagles AFL football club...blue & gold in the video clip, I go to all their games and follow them around the country if I can. being at the winning grand final last year would probably be the absolute highlight of all my world travels! enjoy this last 5 mins of the 2006 grand final, it still sends shivers down me.

-Watching NFL Football- NY Giants and Cincinnati Bengals. WHO-DEY!
-Watching baseball (NY Yankees and Cincinnati Reds, though both suck this year)
-Watching hockey. Go Rangers!
-Golfing when I can (time and money aren't exactly plentiful as a college student)
-Going to theme parks when I can afford to. I have a season pass to Busch Gardens Tampa. I went to Cedar Point last summer and I'm hoping to make it to Holiday World this summer. Most people dont know it because I don't talk about it as much, but roller coasters and thrill rides are just as much of an interest to me as aviation.  Smile

Quite by chance, my hobbies are travel, photography, cooking & international cuisine, aviation and golf, probably in that order.

With the exception of golf, they all fit nicely together: travel by plane, eat local foods of the countries we're travelling to and take lots of pictures. All I need is now is a golf course on the airport approach like the one near LHR which (when I lived down south), was great to watch the jets fly over while I played (especially Concorde at 5:10pm!).

I love traveling! Flying to travel of course. Next on the list is Bulgaria in 2 weeks, and Russia in July, probably Slovenia as well.

Photography! Not only of airplanes, but also of all sort of things. This combines a lot to travelling as I always take my DSLR along to make some cool pics of places I go to

Sports! I play squash quite often, and i play unihockey (hockey with shoes and a ball). I also like to do some snowboard, even though this season was kinda bad... no snow!

Also, bashing Kai, having drinks with friends, my girlfriend... a lot of things!

Horses and dogs are my other passions. Love those Morgans btw, UAL747 Incredible gaits and colors.

Horses at the moment for me is just looking, no riding. I go to the large dressage shows in Holland, read horsey magazines and watch the competitions on TV.

UAL747, as you also love the piano, you should try to see Dutch competitor Imke Schellekens on Sunrise perform her test to music (kur) as she uses piano music especially written and played for her and Sunrise by Wibi Soerjadi, a Dutch piano virtuoso. They came in second at the recent World Cup Finals in Las Vegas.

Dogs are a lifelong passion, especialy bull terriers. I show, breed and take them to obedience and agility classes. Yes, even a bull terrier can do that !

- Football (soccer) is without any doubt my biggest hobby, my main interests are the German Bundesliga, the Champions League, and the Spanish Primera Division (especially Real Madrid). I simply love it to watch a football game in the stadium.

- Hanging out with friends is always fun, no matter if we go to have a drink in a bar, watching football in the stadium, visiting concerts, going to the cinema, etc. Keeps me always busy on the weekends.

- Travelling is also a hobby, I've visited many countries all over the world and I'm always glad when I get a new entry on my "visited countries" list. I hope that I can add Brazil to this list within this year, that would be my first visit to South America.

- Computers are nice toys to play with, a computer can keep me busy for hours. I've two Windows PCs (one notebook and one desktop) and in a few weeks I'll buy my third one (a MacBook).

- Cars. I love to drive nice cars and fortunately I can do it quite often. Nothing beats an empty A44 at night while being on the controls of an Audi A8 4.2l Big grin

My hobbies other than aviation:

Music: Piano (since age 8, 1984)--classical, jazz, religious, Irish, etc. Acoustic guitar (since 2001): any folk style and PIMA fingerpicking style, and self-arranging music for guitar. Violin (self-taught since 2005): any style (especially sacred music) that I rewrite and arrange for violin.

Art: Since early childhood, I have loved drawing--with simple pencil or pen and paper. My earliest drawings show 3-D perspective (e.g. a railroad tunnel). I draw aliens, UFOs, architecture, aircraft, and oddly enough, anatomical drawings. Last year I did a series of anatomical drawings--straight from human cadavers I was dissecting at King's College London--and showed them at an art show there. I draw in the style of John Hunter and Leonardo da Vinci. Photography is another art specialty of mine.

Medical instrument collecting: I collect many types of old/outdated medical/surgical instruments, especially glass syringes. I also have saved many implants, craniofacial fixation plates, and other items that have been used on me during my own craniofacial surgeries. This makes my collection so authentic!

Reading & books: I am a voracious reader, especially of medical books, science fiction, UFOs/aliens, Cold War books, etc.

Anything Soviet/Russian: I play the Soviet National Anthem on piano, wear a Soviet "ushanka" fur hat (with red star) in winter, and carry an Aeroflot shoulder bag (very useful for me). I read Cold War books and have (since childhood, growing up in the Cold War), always been intrigued by the Soviet Union/Russia.

Anything alien/UFO related: Since early childhood, I've been intrigued by the possibility of extraterrestrial life. Some people believe I'm extraterrestrial myself!  Wink I love to write stories of aliens and draw them (anatomically correct sometimes). I am known for my wild campfire stories of alien abduction and sinister alien activities!

Travel: I have travelled to many states in the US, as well as Canada, Bahamas, Mexico, the UK, Ireland, and Spain. I love to fly--especially on the rare occasion in a 747!

Retro: I love anything 1960s/1970s--especially station wagons, home decor, music, LP records, 45s, whatever!

Architecture & interior decor: I love retro and modern architecture and interiors, from the 1960s on.

Camping & canoeing: I've been a lifetime camper and canoeist (because my big family did it whilst we were growing up).

My hobbies are as follows:

Tennis: Been playing since I was 5. In high school I played 8 hours a week, and around 20 hours a week during the tennis season. Here in college I play about 6 hours a week, but when I'm home in the summer I try to play a couple of hours a day.

Music: I've been playing piano since I was 5, and violin since I was 8. Violin is much more of a serious thing for me. I also compose and arrange music. I hope to have the orchestra here at college perform my violin concerto next year. But it's going to take a lot of convincing.

Photography: Self-explanatory, I think. I love to shoot. Anything, anytime. www.tisdigital.com

For me:

Travel - I'm starting to loose interest in the aviation part of travelling, I just see it as all part of the trip. Plans to visit a lot more of Asia (especially Hong Kong and Vietnam) are in the making.

Snowboarding - I started this when I came to university, and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I've since bought my own snowboard (although it's snow very scratched and could do with a wax), and would jump at the chance to move to the mountains. The feeling of belting it down a mountian at full speed, carving perfectly, with the odd jump or two, is just so fulfilling! Broke my collar bone this season, but have snowboarded again since at the Milton Keynes Snowdome (at Xscape). Wakeboarding and surfing are two more things I must take up this summer!

Procrastinating - This is something that seems to have become a hobby in the past few weeks, putting off revision and essays. Mind you, I'm not alone, most people seem to be doing it here!

Friends - Like Patrick (Sabena332), whether it's going to a bar or the union, or just spending time hanging out with friends, I love spending time with them.

Travelling: This goes hand-in-hand with my love of aviation, and although it took me a long time to find a congenial travelling partner, for the last year I've been dating someone who's idea of a good trip exactly matches mine. I'm just back from Istanbul (fabulous place) and am currently planning a trip to Montevideo, Buenos Aires, Santiago & Easter Island. Next August I'd love to take the Trans-Siberian/Mongolian Express from Moscow to Beijing, arriving in China in time to witness the total solar eclipse.

Salsa: What's not to love? The music, the rythym, the movement- that feeling of euphoria that you get on those rare ocasions when the music gets into your very bones and you partner reads your lead perfectly and the dance becomes a perfect medley of sound, movement and physical contact. Of course, you finish up with sweat dripping off the end of you nose and shirt plastered to your torso.... but who cares?!

RE: What Are Your Hobbies Other Than Aviation?

Reading... I've been a bookworm ever since I learned to read at age 4. Not much time to catch up on a good book nowadays, though...

Puzzles... brainteasers, jigsaw puzzles, crosswords, sudoku... anything to get my brain working. Big grin

Anything Snoopy/Peanuts related... from reading the daily comic, to spending several hours surfing the web finding new pages to bookmark, to reading up the various Peanuts blogs, to adding more stuff to my collection.  Silly I just got me a new Snoopy wallet to match the Joe Cool keychain I've had for several years.

Oh, and

Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.

I'm addicted to aquariums. Right now, I've got 3 x 10 gallons, 1 x 29 gallon, 1 x 33 gallon and 1 x 90 gallon. This is the newest member to my passion ...

I love aquariums, too. Between me and my partner, we have three ten-gallon-tank, one five-gallon-tank, and two vase with male Betta. (4 oranda goldfish, 2 male betta, 1 female betta, 3 bumble bee, 8 guppies, 2 plecostomus [one is golden nugget], 1 golden algae eater, 1 Chinese algae eater, 2 mini dwarf puffer fish, 4 gourami, 3 blackskirt tetra, and 3 serpae tetra.)

I like trains as well as aircraft.

I play Guitar (grade 8) and sing, and have started playing Violin and Piano recently too. I like to right, teach and perform music.

I play a lot of pool with my friends down at the pool hall but i'm seriously considering quitting or drastically cutting down as it's destroying my back.

I also play a lot of footy and love watchin it too.

Love to cook, Indian, Italian, Chinese and good old English roast.

I also design websites for a living too so i guess that's kinda a hobby.

For instance, I want to go to Australia but none of my friends want to go. I want to do a cruise down to Mexico but no one will go.

You need to upgrade your friends, mate - how can anyone not want to go to Australia ? They are clearly defective.
