    I'm sure there are more, but what are your top 5 favourite things in life - small things, big things, activities, objects, events, you name it? Mine are:

    1. Travelling
    2. Women
    3. Getting drunk
    4. Film & Music
    5. Potatoe chips

    The order varies according to mood.

    Those are LEAST favourite things, Timmer, unless you were being ironical.

    What a lovely, uplifting topic, Thor.

    Hmmm, as with most "favourite" (or indeed "LEAST favourite") things, each single item changes over time in ranking or intention, or is indeed replaced entirely.

    But right now, I'd say my list would be:

    5. Indonesian food
    My very favourite type of food. This one will NEVER be replaced.
    4. Barcelona
    A city that combines a style, culture and mood to echo my personal preferences on aesthetics to a -t-!
    3. music
    The only art form able to address and stir the very core of my being.
    It's terrible to say, but I've often contemplated that if I'd somehow go completely deaf, life wouldn't be worth living to me.
    2. woodlands
    The smell of pine trees, broad-leaves, warm sand and fresh water leaves me refreshed like nothing on earth
    1. a first kiss
    And every first kiss is as frightening, beguiling, exciting, wonderous and strange as the last one.

    I particularly like your 2nd choice Martijn, nothing quite like the smell of woodland, especially after rain fall or freshly cut grass or salty air on a sea breeze.

    The getting drunk makes me nervous as it could lead to alcoholism

    1.... Life itself. I try to be grateful for each and everyday of my life.

    2.... Family, Friends, and good relationships in my life

    3....A good love, something which has eluded me in life. Brief periods of happiness only

    4....The fact that I've been giving sooooo many interests in my life such as reading, music, movies, photography etc...

    5....After many years the ability to truly be at peace with myself on occasion. Meditating has allowed this to happen to me in life.

    Hey, I forgot nature and humanity, but I'm sure I can replace some of the above with those. wink

    ...

    I was about to go write another post where I make a list on a more practical level, since I have six weeks off and that always makes me think about what I want to do with my time... when I realized my list will probably be the same as Tom's list!!

    A few more favourite things...

    1. the charged up 'alive' feeling of an electrical storm.

    2. the smell of, and dripping sounds of water in a forest after a heavy storm

    3. Being up high in mountains, whether it's the Brecon Beacons or the Himalaya

    4. the dawn chorus of birds anywhere outside of city life

    5. the feel of walking fresh snow underfoot.

    I specifically despise your number 4.

    Yeah, same here. I live in in a very green part of the city; lots of trees, gardens and fancy houses, so the birds get up early. REAL early; NIGHT early even (2:30 and onwards). And there are LOTS of them too in the summertime and they're horny and/or talkative. So I actually have to use earplugs, even though it's otherwise one of the most quiet streets in the city!
    I am extremely serious.

    Oh, you poor little lambs rolleyes

    I also really enjoy silence but I've only experienced what I would call complete silence a few times, high up in the Himalaya on days when there was no wind, utterly incredible experience.

    That may be akin to walking in space.
    It's not an experience I'm likely to have in my life.

    Quite enviable, Timmer. You certainly lived to the fullest.
    (Which I just realised sounds like you're 104 and dying... shocked Didn't really mean it that way!)

    I missed one out, the Sahara desert, that was incredible silent at night.

    I was trying to think of an experience that I wouldn't like and I've thought of one, going deep under sea in a submersible ( a bathosphere or something like that ) would be my idea of hell.

    Why not? I once thoroughly enjoyed a walk home trough a heavy summer storm of 2 hours (flat tire). It's the first moments you get soaked than can be uncomfortable, but once you're fully soaked and have accepted that fact, it's great to experience the downpooring, thunder and all, and to immerse yourself in it.
