Hadrian’s Wall: Day 1

September23

I am taking a vacation this week to walk Hadrian’s Wall in the UK!

What is Hadrian’s Wall?

Hadrian’s Wall was a defensive fortification in the Roman province of Britannia, begun in 122 AD during the reign of the emperor Hadrian. It ran from the banks of the River Tyne near the North Sea and the Solway Firth on the Irish Sea.

The path is around 84 miles wrong, I am hoping to finish by Sunday. How did day 1 go? I arrived pretty late in the day so it was a late start. I had a small snafu with the whole east/west thing. I ended up walking around 9 miles in 2.5 hours and made it too Newcastle. The weather was a bit wet, but a good start.

btw, I walked a roman road in Spain in 2013, via de la plata, if you are interested check out the post (day 1, day 2, day 3 and 4, day 5, 6, and 7). I am hoping to do more of it in the future.

I am pretty simple. I love Mangos. I love the ocean, although mostly at sunset as I’m a ginger. I love to travel, eat exotic food, read, and use my imagination. I love creating and developing ideas into businesses, understanding how all businesses work, and building cool stuff. I am a globalist and see the entire world as my responsibility and playground. And, I am married to an amazing woman who makes life even more fun :)! And, we are now the proud parents of Calico Jack :).
