  1. Your story reminded me of the time I tried to hike to Hadrian’s Wall. Unfortunately, I assumed the path would be obvious and never actually made it. I’ve always wondered if it was really close when I gave up, too scared about getting lost.
    I’m glad your perseverance was rewarded. It makes for a lovely memory and story.

  2. There really is nothing like that feeling of seeing something so incredibly old and historic. You seemed to describe the feeling perfectly, as well as made me feel as though I was actually there and experiencing it myself. Very nice writing. 🙂

  3. LOVE this piece! It took me back to my own backpacking through Europe experience, but to a place I had never been (but will DEFINITELY be adding to my list). Thanks for the mini-adventure on a Friday morning!

  4. We spent two weeks in Provence a couple of years ago and the Pont du Gard was one of our favourite day trips. It’s a wonder to behold and I loved the fact that we were surrounded by so many French families having a picnic and enjoying the summer day – unlike most attractions where we were surrounded by tourists. And I get lost all the time too – sometimes it leads to the most amazing discoveries! 🙂
