English: An avocation is an activity that one engages in as a hobby outside one's main occupation. There are many examples of people whose professions were the ways that they made their livings, but for whom their activities outside of their workplaces were their true passions in life. Occasionally, as with Lord Baden-Powell and others, a person who pursues an avocation is more remembered by history for their avocation than for their professional career.
Español: Una avocación es una actividad que uno se dedica a como un pasatiempo fuera de su ocupación principal. Hay muchos ejemplos de personas cuyas profesiones eran las formas en que ellos hicieron sus vivencias, pero para los que sus actividades fuera de sus lugares de trabajo eran sus verdaderas pasiones en la vida. De vez en cuando, como ocurre con Lord Baden-Powell y otros, una persona que ejerza una avocación es más recordado por la historia de su vocación que por su trayectoria profesional.
