Northumberland Countryside

So blessed to be just an hour’s drive away from the beautiful Northumberland countryside. I took advantage of the long weekend to explore and walk along Hadrian’s wall, from Housesteads Roman Fort to Sycamore Gap.

Being a quick 10-minute ride away, Durham is one of those easy day trips from Newcastle. I have been there in 2010 but it was around March or April, and the weather wasn’t exactly the best. I guess second time’s the charm because it was sunny and bright when I went back with my parents.… Continue reading Sun and Fun at Durham
