- So, you've won the lottery, what do you do?
Travel the world slowly with (extended?) family.
Oh my god, there would be murder!!
Ride my bike lots, build my own house, and i don’t mean pay someone to do it, actually build it myself, apart from the plastering, i’d get my dad to do that!
volunteering sounds good too, and a nice long holidays when the lad isn’t at school!Posted 5 years agoPapa_LazarouMember
Have a place in the alps for summer/winter fun.
See lots of sporting events and concerts.
Voluntary work and maybe go back to university and study something interesting this time around.
There was that irish milkman who’s Mrs won €66m on the euro lottery and he didn’t give up work. So he could do anything he wanted and the best way he could think to use his time was to get up at 3am and deliver milk in Feb. FFS.Posted 5 years agoRobinLSubscriber
I’d need the Euro win … buy a house on the local estate and maybe even build a trail in the back garden ….
Running out of time though !Posted 5 years agoredtedMember
I always thought I’d do much of what most people above have said, and I’m sure I’d lavish some on myself and keep the family right, however everytime I watch Secret Millionaire, I’m always suprprised how (relatively) little money can make a massive difference to alot of peoples/causes fortunes. I genuinely think that I’d try and do something either along the lines of voluntary work or something Philanthropic(but I’m in a good mood today and the sun is shining and I have the evening to myself to go ride in the sun which may be clouding my judgement!).Posted 5 years agohjghg5Member
I’ve thought about this far too much.
Travelling and education. The travelling would involve cycling mainly, but maybe a bit more luxurious than full on touring.
Education wise – learning languages (ties in with the travelling) and doing courses that interest me with no thought for how “useful” they are. Esoteric but interesting stuff to keep me stimulated.
A nice house in the middle of nowhere and a flat somewhere closer to civilisation.
And I have various plans to piss off my employer after I’ve left as long as I’m safe burning those bridges…Posted 5 years agoCountZeroMember
Have a nice house built on a big plot of land and turn that to flower meadow, give money to certain charities, like the Burnham hovercraft rescue, RSPB, Wilts Air Ambulance, buy houses in Europe and North America, and let friends and family use them for free whenever they wanted.Posted 5 years ago
Do lots of travelling, following bands around entire tours in America, because there are a lot of US/Canadian acts who tour very rarely, visit lots of different countries.
All things I’d love to do, just no money.KarinofnineMember
I’d like to be a philanthropist. My job would be to give the interest on the capital away to charities. I would work from home. I would do lots of riding and hanging out with the dogs I would be able to have. I’d like to do a degree, but not sure I’d have time.
Once all the money is settled into trusts and investments I could work remotely and would do the trip that I’ve always dreamed of… get in the car, hitch up the caravan, cross the channel and just go. I’d love to travel through Turkey, Kazakstan, Russia, Ukraine, Pakistan, Tibet, Nepal. I’d love to see the Nordic countries too.Posted 5 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I’d move somewhere warm and english speeking (not xenophobic, butif I had that much money i could afford to be lazy and not bother learning langages). Probably California, never been but bits of it look nice.
A marina full of big sailing boats (J-class, an Open 60, one of those half size AC class boats) a big house (with bigger multi storey garrage), lots of bikes and classic cars and bikes, allong with some properly fast modern sportscars for those days where you absolutely positively have to leave a 100m long number 11 down the main road.
Basicly I’d buy everything I have now, but better, and on a sunnier bit of coast.Posted 5 years agopiedi di formaggioSubscriber
Not a what would you buy discussion
If you won and you never have to work again if you don’t want to, what do you do with your days?
What would you do to fill your time long term
A couple of us have been mulling this over at work and the upshot is, long term, we have no idea!Posted 5 years ago
