101. Fruit/ Vegetable Carving

Fruit Vegetable Carving

Phew! We did 100 hobbies already. Why not a few more for fun? Heard of fruit and vegetable carving? We’re sure you did. There are so many videos on YouTube that display high-level skills and also teach beginners. Etching cute details on fruits and vegetables need focus and a steady hand.

102. Surfing


Sea and ocean lovers here is your favorite hobby. Surfing on the high waves makes you feel as if you’ve conquered the sea. It is thrilling and wonderful. It also needs training and practice. Standing on a surfboard as it jumps on the water is no small feat.

103. Flying Drones

Flying Drones

Drones are easily available these days. While there are some restrictions on flying drones, you can still go ahead and use them to take pictures or videos. Have drone-flying competitions with friends, explore the region without moving from your place, and discover something new and exciting.
