Well, it is settled. We are going to walk Hadrian's wall in June. We have something booked with a Canadian tour group called Natural Outings. It should be fun. We walk the length of the wall from Newcastle to Bowness on Solway a distance of about 85 miles. The group is no more than 10 people and we take a week to do it staying at B&B's and small hotels along the way. They move our packs every day so we don't have to carry them.
We fly into Edinburgh and will spend four nights there before heading to Newcastle. That will give me the chance to follow up Ian Rankin's Edinburgh checking out the spots haunted by Detective Inspector Rebus.
After the walk we intend to spend a few days in the Lake District.
