Question What is Your Hobby?

What type of hobbies do you have?

People tend to find mine a little strange - I am a genealogist so I spend a lot of time in libraries reading birth, marriage, death and Census records but the thing I like the most is Headstones!

I have a genealogy site for my family and I have just 114 Headstones. I also volunteer to look for people that cannot get to the area I live in.

I also knit, sew and try to take pictures but that is more my daughters' hobby.

So, what do you like to do in your spare time??

since i live in Finland (moved from Germany to Finland in May last year)
i prefer to stay outside in the wonderful Finnish nature area, make walks
in the endless Finnish winter forest and when i am back home, i am a
couch potato, laying with a good book on the couch and recreate.
Furthermore i like also a lot of different kind of sports and also i like to
watch good movies

A lot of interesting hobbies.

I am not good at repairing anything - I think that is why, even at my age, I have my father on speed-dial, along with a mechanic.

My genealogy is what made me so interested in Finland - all I had on my Grandma was that she was Finnish, when I got her death certificate, it had her parents names and where she was born (Björköby, Finland) from there I went to a website where I found a wonderful group of people that helped me find even more, including living relatives. Now I can trace my Family in Finland back to my 8th Great-Grandfather who died in 1694.

I like handcrafts like cross stitching, knitting, scrapbooking. I also like to do gardening, reading, spending time on my computer and listening to metal music.

Cool

I love muay thai. Before moving here i went 5 days a week and kickboxed for 2 hours. I lived near the Rocky Mountains in Canada so i hiked and climbed many peaks around different ranges. I counted eagles and was tracked by more than a few times by cougar and hungry grizzly bears. I taught my dog to be the consumate camping companion. yes...i did many many wonderful adventurous things before moving here.

what was the topic?
