... Justice in Nottingham they use actors to help bring the history alive as well as taking you on an amazing journey (done like a ghost ride but without the ghosts) through a mock street to illustrate just how the Vikings lived. It was excellent.

John has an extra set of walking sticks and they really help, especially going down hills. It was a 4.5 mile walk today and you can see some of the pictures I took on this entry.
