It's nearly June challenge time again! Who's joining in this year?

Here are the themes: theme I: buses, theme II: lines, theme III: doing something different. Here are reports from previous years: I.(a), I.(c), I.(d), II.(a), II.(b), II.(c), II.(d), III.(a), III.(b), III.(c), III.(d).

Note there are a couple of changes from previous years. In theme I (buses), I've removed the constraint that you have to start at a bus stop near your home or workplace. You can always choose to obey this constraint anyway if you want to. In theme III (doing something different), I've added a new option, III. (e), designed by [personal profile] secretlondon.

To complete the challenge, all you need to do is:

  • Make an attempt during June 2016 to follow at least one set of instructions from at least one theme.
  • Report back to the community, either via a complete trip report or simply by leaving a comment on this post stating what you did and how it went.

As before, various bits of [community profile] flaneurs swag will be offered to everyone who completes the challenge (we have stickers, badges, and postcards). The more themes you try, the more swag you get.

I'm certainly hoping to have a go at something, and if possible in more than one city.

Incidentally there was an interesting show on Radio 4 last week about the flaneur and other urban strollers, and walking in the city in general: it was this episode of Thinking Allowed.

No! I intended to do something in Auckland, as it was a new city to me and would have been appropriate, but I forgot. (I'm now back in Brighton where I haven't done one before anyway, so I'll try and fit one in here if I can.)

So far, I have done III.(d), turning left and right, in Brighton, but have yet to write it up. Much graffiti was found!

I've now also done: II. (d), a beer glass walk, starting from King's Cross.

I still am hoping to do the bus challenge at some point also.
