Here’s a peek into my experience hiking Hadrian’s Wall! Hadrian’s Wall was built in 122 AD by the Roman emperor Hadrian — to protect the Roman Empire! Google "Hadrian's Wall" if you really want to learn more! I walked the length of the wall — advertised as 84 miles, but really quite a bit longer — with my family. We're an odd bunch, choosing to walk many many miles every day for a "fun" family vacation! We really did have fun, though, and stayed in cute B&B's and rooms above pubs along the way. For the most part we had great weather, with a few drizzles here and there. What sticks out most in my mind are the gazillions of sheep and cows we saw! They are scattered all throughout the green English countryside, and I loved seeing them! You'll notice some city pictures at the start — Newcastle is near the beginning of the wall, and you hike right through the city! After that it's mostly countryside!
Some of these photos are from instagram, all are from my iPhone, and roughly in chronological order!. Enjoy! xo
Now I'm off exploring Scotland... pictures to come eventually! xo
Incredible photos, Mary!!! That sounds like a great way to spend a day to me, followed by lots of eating that is 🙂 Hope you're having the best time. Can't wait to hear more about it!
Thanks, Erin! It was a fun week!! xo
This looks like the most gorgeous walk -- even if it is 84 miles! And all those SHEEP. Yay!
Haha thanks, Eileen! SO many sheep!!
