About Friesendm

The attempted leadership of the Walking Adventures International travel team, spending an outrageous percentage of my life traveling, planning walks, and designing new Adventures!
Favourite music
Classical and soundtracks and a smattering of Oldies
Salzburg, Austria
Favourite movie
Family Man; Groundhog Day;
English, and a smattering of German
Interests and hobbies
Reading, basketball, culture, travel, and sorting out the meaning of life!
One thing I want to do before I die
Fulfill my purpose in life
Favourite book
Books by Paul Johnson and David McCullough
My friends describe me as
A somewhat serious, seldom silly, insightful sap
The most amazing moment in my life so far
The dawning realization that not only does God really exist, but that he is not angry, and that he truly does love us!
