We arrived Saturday morning in Newcastle on the overnight ferry, drove North (after a slight detour through Gateshead in search of a particular type of coat which could only be bought in this particular store, which turned out wasn't where it was supposed to be, for our friend who's looking after Django) and had a stroll along Hadrian's wall (we even walked on it, until I saw a sign which kindly requested one to refrain from doing exactly that, to avoid further damaging the 2000 year old wall)
I was so excited about this whole walk I suggested to my husband we do the entire walk on a holiday in the near future and bless him he said Yes!
