4 Hobbies I'd Like To Take Up In The Future*

I've never been one to have loads of different hobbies. Even when I was younger I had phases with things like dancing but there was never anything I really truly loved and stuck with, and it wasn't until I discovered blogging that I finally had a hobby I could see myself doing forever. I've now self-employed with this blog I started years ago so I don't think it technically counts anymore so recently I've been thinking about a few things I'd like to take up in the future. Let me know if you have experience with any of these!
Baking classes, horse riding, a new language and photography

Baking Classes

Aside from blogging, baking has always been a hobby of mine and I can't see myself ever stopping. I get so much enjoyment out of baking for other people and creating things I've never made before. It's one of those things I can do whenever I'm stressed and it always chills me out. Because I already love it so much and do think I've got better over the years, I'd love to take up some actual baking classes and only improve where I can. My baking is definitely more basic and as I've mentioned in posts before it's a dream of mine to at least apply for GBBO one day and for that I do think I need to get some experience in a place other than my own kitchen! It seems like there are quite a few different classes nearby me which help with an array of different things so it's definitely something I'm thinking about.

Photography

Something I've learnt more and more about because of blogging is photography. Whilst I don't think my photos are the best by any means and some days I do find it incredibly stressful trying to get that perfect flatlay, there is something so satisfying about it and seeing that finished photo at the end. I'd love to only find out more about how to take different photos and get all the editing tips I can get! I think it would really help with taking my blog a little further too.

Horse riding 

This one is definitely a little bit more out there to the other hobbies I've already mentioned but it's something I've seen people speak so positively about! I love the sense of adventure and freedom horse riding can bring you and being closer to nature which itself provides such a feeling of escapism. I love the thought of owning a big house one day with my own stables and places like this Online horse feed suppliers give you so much advice on how to ensure you care for your horses properly and so much more. There are also loads of health benefits to horse riding too, weight loss, toning and reducing stress just to name a few so all round it definitely seems like one to consider.

Learn a language 

Over the last few years I've tried to take up learning a new language but I've never got that far with it. I've mentioned briefly before that I was actually born in Germany and whilst I only lived there for a short amount of time, I would absolutely love to go back in future with George and be able to speak at least a little bit of the language! We both started a while ago and George definitely got further with it than me but I'd love to put my all into learning it in the future. I think having the ability to speak a different language is so incredibly useful for lots of different reasons and it's something I've always been keen to do.

Have you taken up any of these hobbies?
