How do. So I’m soon-ish turning 50, and I’m getting all sorts of requests for what gifts I’d like
I would be perfectly happy with being left the fuck alone
However, that’s apparently not an option, so:
I’m into hiking, photography, F1 and whisky, and not necessarily in that order
I’ve plenty of ‘normal’ price options, but people are asking (very nicely) for bigger ticket items
Photography tours/walks seem to have become incredibly expensive (1’000’s) among those I follow on youtube, but if anybody can recommend a decent photographer who does good tours in lakes/wales or Yorkshire I would be interested to hear their suggestions. I did previoulsy have a wonderful walk (for a birthday gift) with mark Littlejohn, but now he has decamped to the extremeties of Scottish, it’s a bit trickier for me to get to
I’m armed to the teeth with camera gear (and the stuff I lack is ridiculously expensive) so that’s not an issue
(Oooh, just had a thought … A ticket for Spa 2024, perhaps??)
In the past I would have suggested a vintage 1973 single malt, but with the (price) hype of the last 10-15 years this has become unfortunately a stupid suggestion. (which actally fits the AA style useless advice )
To all the youngsters on the forum: grab your vintage while you can at decent prices, to pop open when you turn 50.
Here in D we have Jochen Schweizer, they have experience packages like e.g. Ferrari driving, maybe you a similar organisation in the UK?
Or alternatively ask for a contribution for your Harley Davidson purchase.
