Sport – any sport ! and cooking, travelling, theatre etc. I quite like socialising as well …
Rugby, the only true team sport

Anything by the God that is Robert Ludlum. However for a good cry then it has to be Warhorse by Michael Morpurgo
Salcombe for many, many reasons and Kalkan in Turkey for peace, tranquillity, beautiful views and many happy memories
Anything between Division Bell by Pink Floyd to The Pearl Fishers by Bizet. Oh, and everyone secretly likes a bit of Gaga!
