Snowboarding, surfing, travelling, driving. Oh and I'd probably own my own plane so I could fly around different cities in one day.

Travel and live the life of a wealthy do-gooder.

Travel, learn languages and maybe take some other courses. Writing, photography and cooking classes. Do some volunteer work for child and adult literacy. See some shows. Go to concerts. I would hire a cleaning lady so I wouldn't have to do housework (which I hate)

I've never really been able to understand people who say they're bored during leisure time. There's just so much to do during leisure time, even if it's sitting and watching the sun set or daydreaming. I understand getting bored during a meeting or a task you don't like. But free, leisure time? There's always something to do, a book to read, a movie or tv show to watch. I just find it impossible to be bored during leisure time.

If $$ was no object, I would take my wagon and travel to each different state and take-in the amenities and activities of those different states. I would also get a shot glass for each state and this would be great because I could take my time since I dnt have to be at work!!

Just the idea of spending my days reading books and writing stories gives me a little thrill. I'm a nerd.
You and me both....while putzing around my cabin near the woods, near a mountain on a large private pond, planting native plants and grasses, developing wildlife habitat, birdwatching. If I had quite a bit of extra money I'd try to support the local library, animal shelter, woman's shelter.

I would take myself off to a beautiful beach and sit and read for a month. I'd love to hand out large sums of money secretly to folks. Other than that, gardening and feeding birds and my dog give me serenity and pleasure. I'd still be in my trademark denim oversized shirts putzing in my yard, only it would be a huge property.

I'd ditch the house and become a gypsy and travel for a loooooong time. I would love to do a lot of hiking while out traveling. When I'm finally ready to settle into a house again- art lessons, volunteer work, music lessons, create some sort of non-profit organization(not sure in what area yet since I'm passionate about a few things), yoga, chef school just because, learn a lot of languages.

I'd do some travel. Some cooking classes. Lots of reading. And I'd run my own clothing boutique. My retirement career plan is personal shopper!
