Photo Story: Walking 500 Miles To The Jacobite Steam Train

The Jacobite Steam Train takes you past Britain’s highest mountain, deepest loch, shortest river and most westerly train station.  Every year between March & September, you can jump on it for a two-hour trip that crosses the Glenfinnan Viaduct, a Scottish icon that’s been infamised  as the ‘Harry Potter Bridge’ to Hogwarts. Oh and we didn’t walk up to Scotland, we drove! That was just a play on The Proclaimers Song because ironically it was 500 miles from Norwich (where we were staying) up to Glenfinnan.

As a small child my favourite book was 'People of the World' which featured Inuits from Alaska, children from China and farmers from Peru. It was a glimpse into another world that would inspire me to wander the globe in search of something special.
