Thank you for this exciting topic. Actually, there are several expensive activities I like to try from time to time, but I can’t manage to pursue them all regularly. Obviously, it is because they are more “expensive” than I can actually afford. However, there is one activity that I enjoy doing occasionally, and today, I will go ahead and talk about that.
Now, I am not sure how many people actually consider “driving a fast sports car”, an expensive activity. Still, it certainly is for me because I have to rent one, and trust me, where I live, renting just a normal passenger car can cost you a fortune, let alone a fast sports car. On top of that, they can become even more expensive if you rent them on the weekends or any other holiday season, obviously because more people rent them during those times. Besides, adding the cost of “buying a car insurance” and “fuel” (yes, fast sports cars usually consume a lot more fuel than the regular 4-door sedans) to the cost of renting a fast sports car actually puts a huge “dent” in your pocket.
But, of course, none of these costs really prevents me from renting a fast sports car occasionally and visiting an interesting place with my friends and family. By the way, when the rental cost becomes too high for my liking, my friends sometimes (yes, “sometimes,” but not always) are kind enough to share the cost with me, which actually does lessen the burden on me a little.
Anyway, no matter the cost, I enjoy this expensive activity, mainly because it allows me to feel the adventure and thrills of being fast on the road like an unstoppable jaguar marching forward furiously yet silently. Besides, it also allows me to spend quality time with my friends and family, away from the crowds and monotony of daily life.
