Hadrian’s Wall: A Photo Story

He stood staring into the wood for a minute, then said: “What is it about the English countryside — why is the beauty so much more than visual? Why does it touch one so?

When I moved to England to get my MA in archaeology, one of the first places I was lucky enough to explore was Hadrian’s Wall. Seeing the ruins of the forts, the longevity of the wall itself in many places, and the GORGEOUS countryside made me fall in love with the UK. The pictures I took are not up to my current standard by any means, but I love looking back on them.

Here’s a few glimpses into the rich history of England. I know I can’t wait to get back and possibly hike the entire wall! Next time I promise I’ll bring a better camera, but even then I don’t think pictures can do justice to how beautiful the landscape is there.

Hey everyone, my name is Emma Browning. Thanks for stopping by. I like to think of myself as a modern day renaissance woman since I basically do a little bit of everything. Here's a few of my jobs/hobbies in case you're curious: Group Fitness Instructor (Zumba, BodyStep and BodyPump), small business owner (string art& travel photography), archaeologist/anthropologist, actress, SCUBA dive master, reading addict, dog mom, cellist, and of course travel enthusiast. I've traveled to over 21 countries and speak French fluently and am learning Spanish. Traveling is one of my all time favorite things to do whether it be a day trip with my dog or a massive international adventure. I created this blog to help others see the world vicariously through my wanderings and also to give useful tips and essential information that will hopefully inspire more people to travel. Hopefully you have as much fun reading these posts and get a lot of useful information from them!
