Speaking of boat, the first thing comes to my mind is that I used to go boating with my parents when I was younger. Almost 18 years ago, my parents and I were living in an outskirts. The infrastructure in there was undeveloped, so there were few amusement parks and gardens offered for people. I guess I could consider this as an advantage, because I had some unforgettable memories in those places. I remember my favorite thing I did with my family was hanging out in the garden, which was the biggest garden in the district. In summer, some people considered boating as a popular leisure activity. As it was affordable, and people were able to chat with others without disruption. My father was pretty busy and had some business trips. I barely could see him and talk to him within a month. In that case, for me going boating was the only activity that I spent a lot of quality time with him. He shared with me some interesting things happened in his business trips. When I asked him if he felt tired or faced some difficulties. He always told me that there is a will there is a way. I guess he inspired me with his positive attitude, and I learned a lot from him.

With the time spent eating, sleeping and taking care of the household duties, there’s little time left for leisure activities for many Americans. However, having free time to relax and pursue hobbies is important. People need time away from the pressures of study or work to relax and enjoy time with friends and family. In many countries free time is spent in different ways. The results of a Harry’s pool showed that reading was the most popular spare time activity in the US. This was followed by watching TV.
