I've always wanted to learn to fly which is why I took it up (that and no wife, kids or many friends in the local area mean I have the money/time to do it at the moment), but what I do when I have the licence is still a mystery.
I'm still in the stages of "do it until I can no longer be bothered/can't afford it", but I have a strange feeling that I won't get bored of it any time soon
Short term goals will be to find interesting ways to fly (I'm guessing flying round your local area every time would get boring after a while)
Longer term, my Dad has an apartment in Calpe (near Alacante in Spain) so I guess one goal would be to get to the point where I could fly myself there, that would take a lot of experience though (and maybe beyond my budget).
The other possibility would be to look at becoming an FI but I have no idea how much time/effort and money that would take. I have found that doing your hobby for a living can take the shine off it so maybe that isn't such a good idea after all.
More likely lots of budget than lots of experience!
