Wandering the Countryside

I always feel a little nervous when making a train change. Sure, it says “track 5” and there is a train at track 5 that says “Newcastle” and “stopping at bardon mill, but it still feels like a roll of the dice. The line from Edinburgh to Carlisle was like an track, but this one, the northern line, with signs that also say the Hadrian’s wall line, is more like a commuter train. A group of school kids in uniform just got off at the last stop. The countryside is full of Hedges, ferns and white faced sheep instead of the black faced ones in Scotland. I’m in a great little hotel, and I watched a little World Cup and had dinner downstairs. Now I will attempt the great navigation to the roman army museum and Vindolanda, near Hadrian’s wall, and then a walk back to the pub to get my bags and move on. Hope I’ve got the timing and all the buses right!
