Although I said I was going to wait to see my "tax situation" I've gone and booked my flight!!
To hike Hadrian's Wall with my friend and fellow blogger Annie!!
Most of you know Annie - but here's her blog url, just in case you haven't met her yet: "Northern Living Allowance." If you are a regular reader of my blog you'll know that Annie and I met up for the first time in person on my last trip to England. We forgot to take a selfie during that visit so I decided to make another journey across the pond :) We connected through our blogs... oh I don't know...5 years ago? 6? Annie used to live in Canada, in the Yukon no less!! But she felt the call to move to England and is enjoying new adventures there and LOVING it!!
(**I thought I was getting a great deal on my flight until I discovered it was in American dollars!! Once converted into Canadian dollars ay yi yi!!)
So I'll keep posting wonderful photos to make myself feel better - I mean...who can put a price on THIS!!
Thanks Mike for the advice about the waterproofs - I realize I probably won't be so lucky a second time around. Last year's trip saw me carry my rain gear daily in my back pack where it stayed - for TWO weeks - no rain!! But I am realistic and know that was an anomaly!! (Though I'll keep my fingers crossed that the good weather fairy will follow me around again!)
Having this trip to plan for and look forward to has really lifted my spirits - I read recently that we get just as much joy and excitement from the planning stages as we do from the actual trip. Ain't that a trip?!
Plus I needed some motivation to get eating right and moving more - this should do the trick!
Now I need to plan my trip to PEI this spring!! I'll be busier than a rooster in a henhouse!
