Hadrian’s Wall Walk – West to East

• Bowness-on-Solway • Carlisle • Banks • Old Repeater Station • Halton Red House • Newcastle-upon-Tyne • Wallsend
The day finally arrived for our first long distance walk, west to east on Hadrian’s Wall National Trail in England. Hadrian’s Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was built in 122 AD by Roman soldiers, under the orders of the Emperor Hadrian. The path follows this stone wall across England from coast to coast, so we could say “We walked across England!”

Travel Inspiration 2019

/
I don't know about you, but I get almost as much feel good mileage from travel planning as from the trip itself. A study from the Netherlands found that vacationers were generally happier than non-vacationers – not necessarily after a holiday, but before the holiday, while planning and anticipating their vacation.So here's some travel inspiration for 2016 so you can take advantage of this pre-trip happiness.
