"I am now 81years old, there are many of us out there, traveling the world, seeing the sights. My hair changed colour, becoming first grey and then white... I am one of the many..."
Ah yes - The Grey Nomad - a mysterious character and one of my new favourite websites.
I should probably admit to a familial interest. The Grey Nomad is none other than everyone's favourite first-cousin-once-removed.
It makes for some mighty fine reading, too - the travel and personal memoirs of an unusual and eventful life. The site is still being added to and will repay visits in the future as well as in the here and now (and what better time is there, or has there ever been, than the here and now?).
So - have a go, click on this link: www.thegreynomad.co.uk and allow yourself a few minutes to enjoy a brief personal history on the home page and then travel with The Grey Nomad to Iona and to the Hidden North. I believe that writings about exploring the New World are to be uploaded in due course (but remember, it's no good trying to hurry a nomad, especially a grey one).
If you do pay the site a visit, please don't forget to sign the guest book.
