The world offers fantastic experiences and human encounters in new environments; these are life’s highlights. In My Impressions, author Frank Olsson captured many special moments during his worldwide travels and now shares these in this memoir and travelogue. A collection of twenty-nine notes on life and travel, the events take place in Asia, the United States, Europe, and New Zealand. The vignettes describe the locations and experiences with a light and positive approach, reflecting Olsson’s appreciation for his rich life. Meet the cab driver in New York; have a drink at the Wells Tavern; tour Petoskey, Michigan; stroll the streets of Milano; and relax on the beach at Waikiki.
Filled with vivid descriptions of people and surroundings, and interspersed with tidbits of local history, My Impressions showcases Olsson’s wide array of experiences during his international travels in the banking industry. The writings highlight Olsson’s openness to new people and new situations, and underscores the philosophy that deep and genuine friendships can be made anywhere in the world.
