I'm sure I'm contributing to a bit of thread derailment here, but Jon - what's it going to take for you to share some homebrew with your buds here on the Expat forum?

Billfish,

Making Cookies is considered Baking

He said Brewing I know what he meant but thanks needed the laugh

That said Jon we all expect detailed updates as to the numerous successes and unforseen disasters your new venture provides. :cheers:

I don't see how you can't possibly come up with a hobby.

I used to build model kits when I was younger. Mostly aircraft and military. Won all sorts of awards with them. Go to some of the hobby shops. They have some excellent ones available now. Almost like miniatures they are so detailed.

I also do photography, home brewing (when I was back in the US), gardening, and cigar smoking.

There are endless possibilities there.

I do believe drinking may be considered the national hobby, so there's always that.

On a more serious note, I spend most of my time with my kids when I'm not working. When I like to "get away from it all" I typically go to one of the tracks in BGC for a run, go to the pool for a swim, or play my guitar. I'm not sure exercise is considered a "hobby" but it's what I like to do.

You can get an instrument here pretty cheap (don't know if they are quality, though; I shipped my guitars in from the States) - they're probably good enough to learn on, though.

Hmmm- you're right about that for sure. No one wants to have their life ended by an avoidable mistake..

Crikey, with the amount of work I have I'd love to be faced with the dilema of what to do with all my spare time. I've a list of things to do that is exponentially larger than the time I have available to do it in. Just climbing all the volcanoes I wish to here in the Philippines would chew up many months without even going into the fishing I'd like to undertake.
