Driving to York today with Ruth and Charlie we stopped to view Hadrian's Wall at two locations. Maps 1-2. An 83 year old woman riding nearby said that on a clear day you can see it to the horizon.

We were away for four months and maybe this was fractionally long, after about 3 months we did start to think 'it would be nice if we were home now'. Not that we were ever bored and the days certainly passed quickly. We enjoyed the experience of seeing new places; including Cape Town, all the major Australian ...
