About

Pascha Pict 2019Since the beginning of our family in 2004, we have always enjoyed a good journey to somewhere holy or interesting. Our family name Friar comes from a mendicant monastic order in the Middle Ages which traveled from place to place rather than remain in a cloister. Over the years, our desire to travel has brought us to numerous encounters in different parts of the world.
