Wanting an adventure over the Easter holidays, a friend and I decided to walk from coast-to-coast following the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall, past Roman settlements and forts. There was history every step of the way; cosy pubs, bustling market towns and spectacular views too.
It took us six days to walk 84 miles with two dogs and has to be the toughest thing I have done, to date. If you want a challenge I would definitely recommend anyone to give it a go.
Starting at Wallsend, near Newcastle-upon-Tyne, we walked across beautiful landscape to Bowness-onSolway, Cumbria. Of course, it wasn’t as easy as it sounds; it was hard work and very challenging with the weather. We walked in the rain, the sleet and across snow-topped hills, slid down mudslides and waded through flooded paths. We laughed our way through it and the sense of achievement when we reached the end was awesome, moving us both to tears.
