Crossing the Wall

Hadrian’s Wall was begun in 122 AD by the Emperor Hadrian to define to northern frontier of the Roman Empire in Britain. Many parts of it still exist and I caught the train from Newcastle where I figuratively crossed the line into Scotland at Berwick upon Tweed on the coast. All roads lead to the capital Edinburgh so I headed there to decide what to do with a bit of time off before the festival. Amongst other things a visit to the museum, check out the Nethebow storytelling centre in the Royal Mile and admire the castle in all its glory.
