I enjoy a few different hobbies and pastimes.
Walking and Hiking – I love the mountains. My love for the mountains is founded somewhat in my experiences as a missionary for the Church in Austria. I spent two years in the country living in Leoben in the south, Innsbruck, Steyr (not too far from Salzburg) and in Vienna. Leoben, Innsbruck and Steyr have the Alps mountains on their doorstep, in the case of Innsbruck, my apartment looked out onto the Nordkette that stands over Innsbruck. I was stuck immediately by the majesty of these mountains and spent most of my free time walking and hiking the Alps of Austria. As our children have grown, we have taken them out on hikes in the UK hills, particularly in Scotland with the odd trip to the Alps. In 2012, Scott and I along with a few friends from our church completed the 3 Peaks Challenge, hiking Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, the three highest peaks in Great Britain in 24 hours.
