“Make friends for life while you walk”
On your hike
Do you often fancy a good walk somewhere but have no one to go with? Glamoraks is a new online community for women juggling busy lives and responsibilities. “While I find
the solitude of walking alone relaxing, not everyone feels that way,” explains founder Melissa Talago, who often heads out on her own. “I realised that there must be many other women who want to get out walking but don’t always have
anyone to go with, so I set up Glamoraks”. Through the online platform, women can post a walk suggestion for any given day, then connect directly with others who want to join them. There are even options to plan a route together or buy and sell second-hand walking kit.
“It’s a great way to meet new friends and beat loneliness,” says Melissa. Glamoraks has now spread worldwide and has a growing community. “I’m hoping it will inspire women to try new walks and rediscover their inner adventurer, even if their adventure includes a comfy bed and a nice glass of wine at the end of it.” Now that sounds like our kind of hike.
