MagoGuide Map for Hadrian’s Wall

We had so much fun on our Hadrian’s Wall walk that we had to share it with everyone in our book “Mago on the Wall“.  Check it out and buy a copy. You’re going to love it. Here’s an extra bonus… a map with all the hotels, restaurants, and sights that we saw along the way.  Use the “more information” option on each to see all the details and photos.

¿Por Qué No? Taqueria
Despite the fact that tacos are priced from $3.25 to $4.75 (outside of happy hour), the queuing hordes at ¿Por Qué No?? are there for a good quality affordable meal. And compared to the excellent but spendy Mexican cuisine served up at places like Xico they have a point. But that point only goes so far.
