Default The Hobbies Thread: What are yours?

Do any of you guys have any interesting hobbies or habits outside autoworld, like colecting some specific items, decorating, cooking, pets, home diys etc.

I have a rather strange hobby of collecting various exotic colognes and deodarants whenever I travel. I have a fairly big collection of atleast 100+ brands collected over the last 4-5 years. Got a big nose for it I also like trying out various flavours of tea from all over the world, though they cant be preserved for long. Got a good desire for new varieties of food as well. Travelling also used to be one big interest area for me until recently.

Default The Hobbies Thread: What are yours?

Automobiles is the common passion which binds all of us together. Apart from that there may be many other things or stuff we like to do or collect. So let's hear from you BHPians what your hobbies are. It could be anything from stamp collecting to even cold drink bottle caps.

Let's keep car scale models out of this one. We already have a nice thread for that

Ooh I like that.
I love music (listening to music all the time, DO NOT have an IPod though), movies, TV shows, gym, basketball and internet.

Sujay thats a long list . Let's look at something more specific like I mentioned above eg : coins, stamps, postcards etc..

What you posted are more like interests

Could make for good discussion and could lead to barter as well

Cheers

I collect currency (notes/coins) as well as stamps. Always wanted to play the keyboard but somehow never went past the SA RE GA MA stuff. Finally got tired of my tutor and left. That was some years back.
