Northeast England Road Trip

There is nothing better than a road trip to really get to know a country's little secrets and to have the flexibility to always change your plans if you feel like stopping in a place for a bit longer.

This year since we were going to a friends wedding in Blackpool we planned a road trip going from Northeast England to Scotland. We arrived at Uk in the Hull port using the P&O ferries.

And headed in direction to the Hadrian Wall. Programmed it in the GPS and here we go! The route we had sent us through some really beautiful small roads,

The landscape around the Hadrian Wall is just breathtaking!

Following the pedestrian path around the Hadrian Wall,

The amazing tree in the middle of two mountains! what a vieewwww

a closer look with the sun shining!

gorgeous sunset!

This was a Sunday and all the restaurants around the Hadrian Wall were closed....Incredibly enough the takeaways were all open! So we ended up doing a bench picnic with some super tasty Indian food!

It was reallyyyyy good tasting... pity I can't recall the exact names of the dishes :(

Since it was on and off between raining and the sun shining we saw some beautiful rainbows

After all that sightseeing we stayed in a super cute B&B in Haltwhistle called the Kellah Farm

At Kellah they had a really nice breakfast room,

we had homemade sausages and fresh eggs!

Next stop heading to the Scottish borders!!

Space invaders take on Paris!!

Last time I was in Paris we paid special attention to this interesting Space Invaders Mosaics that you can find all over Paris.

Googling about it found out that this is the product of the work of an urban artist call Invader!

More about the artist, from his website,

"What made you choose Space Invaders as the main character for the project?
Lots of reasons. I see them as a symbol of our era and the birth of modern technology, with video games, computers, the Internet, mobile phones, hackers and viruses. And "space invader" is a pretty good definition of what I'm doing... invading spaces!"
