Hi!

Report: Flanzance with ten small images.

I've noticed that flaneurs has been lucky enough to acquire some new members so I decided to include a brief introduction with my first June challenge post this year.

On the flanning spectrum from rules constrained walkers at one end to free flowing wanderers at the other, I'm an absent-minded deriveur. I bend the rules until they're origami because even in this seventh year of the challenge I can't remember whether I'm supposed to be walking first left then second right or first right then second left. I also often play in towns and smaller cities where if I want to walk in a straight line from a (somewhat) random starting point then I need to have a choice of heading south or north, so I don't almost immediately walk out into countryside or fall into the sea!

I hope you all enjoy the June challenge as much as I do and that it shows you interesting places. :-)

I completed challenge III. (c) random pub to the Gunmakers Arms in Birmingham's Gun Quarter. Post including a one paragraph report with one photo inside the Two Towers brewery.

I did a second III. (c) random cafe to Wolverhampton Art Gallery cafe. Post including a one paragraph report with one photo of art in the cafe.

I completed challenge I. (a) and investigated an interesting thing seen from a tram window in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter. Post including a one paragraph report with one photo of Key Hill Cemetery.

I did II. (a) following a tram line in Birmingham city centre. One paragraph with five photos, from Grand Central to Snow Hill.

I also did a semi-failed II. (c) Local council walk in Stratford-Upon-Avon. Full report with a dozen photos, circular walk along the River Avon.

This is my last June challenge report for this year. I completed challenge II. (c) walk a local council trail. I went to tourist information and asked about walking trails in the Jewellery Quarter and was told there are three, that all overlap, and was given a leaflet for this one (.pdf). It also turned out to be a good walk for me and an excellent route for playing postcode bingo with all the B numbers on the road signs. Warning: squeamish folks might want to skip the history of the whereabouts of John Baskerville’s body! Report with 17 small images at my journal. Enjoy!
