THREE THINGS ABOUT… PETER ARMSTRONG
1. 2. 3.
Armstrong collects 200-year-old walking maps of London, England—his “favourite city in the world.” He fell for the Britishdesigned, Hollandprinted cartography after a school rugby tour. “They're made of linen, folded together so you can put it in your pocket, and are so beautiful,” he explains. “They only had a shelf life of six months before they needed to be changed as the city grew.”
Adhering to his motto, “Good things happen when you show up,” he believes people should get involved by going to events and other activities. “So often you get a great experience out of it, even if it's not immediate.”
Armstrong has long harboured a fascination with Iceland, though he's never visited. “When I wrote about things at school, it would always be about the place—the puffins and Vikings. It's on my bucket list.”
