    Going to a race track and getting to drive five iconic classic cars: an Austin Healey 3000, A Porsche 911, a (old) Mini Cooper S, a Jaguar E-Type and finally the Ford Mustang in my profile picture.

    The day out could only have been improved by going to a nice restaurant afterwards. :yum:

    That sounds fantastic @66Mustang it must have been pretty exhilarating! Did you get scared at all? I think I would if I went very fast.

    @Alex_Scope the thing I was most scared of was having to reverse park the vehicles in front of a crowd of people. I’m not keen on parking!! :D 

    The cars aren’t actually that fast as they are classics and it was quite a tight track. I don’t think I went over 100 in any of the cars.

    I hate parking too, I can imagine that was a bit stressful, but it sounds like you aced it :) 

    Getting near 100mph is still pretty fast in my book, but I know I'm not all that familiar with classic/super/sports cars. I'm glad you got to indulge your passion that day.

    I'd love to try something like that one day @66Mustang but the idea of people watching would really put me off!!
    My best day out was at a beach. The weather was pretty rainy and cold so it was quiet and I watched the sun rise and I just felt really connected with the world and at peace and I loved watching the ocean. I know it's pretty simple and silly but it was just so grounding. 

    I've not really done any big adventures so don't have anything more exciting but it was just such a nice time. I remember thinking how much I'd like to leave near the beach one day but then I remembered tourists and crowds and changed my mind :D

    My best day ever was at discovery cove in florida 

    I swam with dolphins it was a full day lunch included and all equipment . Apart from the swim there was lots of other attractions there 

    I managed to get a lovely spot on the sand by the area where the dolphins were so watched them all day it was amazing

    My best day out was looking after a tiger at the local safari park for the day. It was a birthday present, my second best day out was breakfast with the lions.

    I'm planning a day out with a friend soon, not yet, maybe 3 or 4 weeks down the line, to visit a castle that has war of the Roses live attraction, plus the dungeons with live actors, falcon display,  plus the castle it self, maze and I'm hoping lots of selfie with knights. Tires me out thinking of it all. Can't wait tho.

    My favourite day out is similar to @66Mustang it was a large car show and I got to  show all my cars  and we drove them round the city I won prizes on four of my cars 

    My second best day was picking up  my first mobility car which was the first mini to have 5 gears  I was presented with my car by the major and I was on TV and in the pappers I also received a year's free petrol  and flowers 

    My third best day was reciveing an award from the Queen going above and beyond in my job as a carer in the community and saved lives when a fire broke 

    Now every day is my best day and I take it one day at a time and enjoy
