A poll has revealed the top things people think make a happy and full life, including visiting 25 different countries, learning a foreign language, and trying lots of different foods.

The research carried out to mark the release of Life of Pi on DVD found that people prioritised experiences and achievements over possessions.

Some of the top 50 included travelling, spending more time outdoors, and visiting British historical landmarks.

With a lot of Carpe Diem attitude, people thought they should treat each day like it's the last and get out more. Hear hear!

Others prioritised love, saying that being married for over 20 years and finding the one were the key.

However in the poll of over 2,000 people, only 23% thought they were living life to the full and the average person had only ticked off eight out of the top 50 things.
