First glimpse of the wall!

 

Hiya! I’m happy to report that we have all come back from the first of our big hikes along Hadrian’s Wall exhausted but certainly still smiling. Many of us are even a little pink from the sun that graced us all day! It was a full day of amazing views, chats with a plethora of local sheep, hill-climbing triumphs and of course full of Roman history!

What better way to end a day of hiking than with ice cream?

 

It was a full day of amazing views, chats with a plethora of local sheep, hill-climbing triumphs and of course full of Roman history! I hope you’ve enjoyed this glimpse inside our adventure.
