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.
My travels around the clouds continue (you can see more of my travel adventures by clicking on CLOUD SURFING in the TAG CLOUD). 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 to Mongolia.
Courtesy of blogger and photographer Cap Chastain. Cap is an intrepid traveller and I have published several of his travel journeys before. When you consider he is now 82 and still travelling, this is remarkable in itself, but his posts make great reading.
Mongolia is not a place I’ve ever been to, nor am I ever likely to go. I always think of it as a country in the middle of nowhere made up of nothing but a desert landscape. Not unlike the picture below.
Cap Chastain went there in 2015 and the link below will show you some of the photographs he took on that trip. They more or less confirm my view of what it’s like. Nonetheless Cap found much, much more. So you should click on the link below.
This photograph is of Cap himself when visiting Mongolia and he looks remarkably like the images of Genghis Khan. I can imagine he has now been adopted by the nation as a reincarnation of its founder 🙂
Once again my thanks to Cap for sharing his great photographs of his travels with us.
In the weeks ahead, I will publish more blogs and photographs from my cloud surfing travels.
