Well I have been back for over a week now. This extraordinary experience is beginning to fade now I am in this new chapter.

Very nice farming areas with lots of hay making and sheep. Found the accommodation but no meals Sunday so had to walk 10 mins to a hotel. On coming back to the inn we had a great conversation with people in the ...

That’s the long way round to get back to the Wall, but Rome’s going to keep surfacing throughout our Grand Tour, so we might as well get the bare bones history out of the way at the start.
The wall was 80 Roman miles long (that’s about 75 of our miles) running from the North Sea at Newcastle on Tyne on England's eastern coast to Carlisle on the Irish Sea on ...
