Newcastle has long been a strategic location for fortresses, dating back to the Romans in the 1st-3rd century AD. In the 11th century, the Norman conquerors built a wooden castle on the site of the Roman ruins, the “new castle” providing the best possible protection at that time.

After being at the forefront of industrial progress during the 19th and 20th centuries, Newcastle has become a great place for art, design, shopping, and much more. Here is a sneak peek at some things to see in Newcastle that I found during my recent visit to Northern England.

For McCool Travel’s 82nd travel profile, I am pleased to present Alyssa Ramos. Like many of my travel interviewees, I “met” Alyssa online through Twitter travel chats. She is well-traveled, adventurous, fun (I think), and generous (I also think). Enough of my thinking, let Alyssa do the talking.

Virginia wine can be traced to Thomas Jefferson in 1800s and Jamestown in 1607. I recently made stops along the Monticello Wine Trail near Charlottesville.
