CreepyPastaKitty Apart from hanging out with friends and watching TV etc, my hobbies are: taekwondo, watching documentaries and experiencing new things. We sometimes go to a museum but I also have a lot of fun when we go shopping. That is something I do with my mother and sister. I like going for walks in the country, especially near my home village. My father and brothers also go horse riding. I play Pokemon, especially when I’m up for a challenge.
Feather Friend Just like you, I enjoy walking too. I prefer walking in places where there’s water, like the beach or the river, or even in the rain. I love taking photos, particularly of birds. I wish I had a better camera.
