GrumbleSmiles was set up to provide innovative answers to tackling the problems of loneliness in later life. Many older people are less able to get out and about, which can be the first steps towards a life of isolation.
So starting today I invite you to join me on a trip to unknown destinations around the world and an opportunity to talk to new and interesting people. All at no cost and from the comfort of your own armchair.
We are going cloudsurfing.
My first trip is travelling with Mike Rodriquez in Aspen, Colorado, specifically to see the Maroon Bells mountains. Although I’ve been to America many times, I’ve never been to Colorado. So Mike’s blog and his wonderful photographs gave me a real insight into how wonderful the landscape is.
The photograph below is one of many views that Mike captured on his trip in October 2017.
If you click on the link below, it will take you to Mike’s blog site which is called “All the pages are my days”, where you can see much more. I thank him for giving me permission to use this photograph and the link and I’m sure Mike would love to hear from you.
In the weeks ahead, I will publish more blogs and photographs from my cloud surfing travels.
