Travel Tuesdays - Hadrian's Wall

Hadrian's Wall, UK
On Travel Tuesdays we take a trip off the Charleston peninsula and dip into past travel albums. Join me on a field trip!

In 2008 my friend Pat swooped into my office and asked if I wanted to walk across England. Of course I did! We flew to Edinburgh, took the train to the starting point of the excavation of Emperor Hadrian's wall and hiked along the remnants of the wall all the way to the coast staying in Bed & Breakfasts and farmhouses along the way. I am the only person who can walk over 100 miles and weigh to the dot exactly what I started at because I gobbled down full English breakfasts every morning.

Check Pat & Kathie's blog for a great write up of our hike. Oh, and the bottom picture? Yes, I bought a kid's Roman helmet to wear. When marching in the footprints of Romans, eh?
