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.
