    Learn about wildlife via documentaries,books,museums etc.

    It makes it so much more fun, when you are in a park or forest, to be able to recognise certain plants and insects.

    Join a mountaineering club that way you don't need a car, as they normally provide transport, and it's group based.

    I love languages personally and always love learning more about those I know...

    You can always learn some computer stuff like advanced handling of MS Word, Excel, Power Point (creating things really pretty, not just basic primary school like ones - always usable for work). Also basic computer graphics stuff. I've really enjoyed learning basics of video editing for example, just putting clips together so that they don't look like crap when I'm done.

    Also you could get into some team sport because it's always good for socializing and getting to know a close knit group of people

    When I lived in Spain I had a moped, so I'm used to it. Just going up a gear I suppose.

    I've passed my car licence, but to be honest there's no rush to get that done unless you need to commute to an isolated area. Waste of time and money for me.
