Some of the activities he would like to share with a new friend include: going for walks and grabbing hot chocolate, attending community events, going to movies, going swimming, eating out, visiting Victoria attractions and new destinations going to see new things (ie. opening of a store, a new building going up..). He also loves to watch sports, both on TV and live events, and always happy to talk sports.
