I said I'd (probably) follow up this - a work-home travel flan.

III. (a) Travel to or from your workplace one day using a completely different route to any you've ever used before.


I have a new job, which means that, at least for the first journey, I'm travelling home by a completely different route.

This would be clever except that I forgot to do it on my first day. I did it later, but before the end of June. This totally doesn't count, but I've done this challenge earlier anyway.

Have some pictures! )

I was slightly sad that the challenges are the same as last year so I planned to do something different, however it turned into IIIa, but started out as IIIb. I think IIIa is broad enough to cover any travel starting at work that you haven't done before even if your motivations are different. I apologise in advance for not knowing dreamwidth as I don't live here any more. I also apologise in advance for the Ingress.

This is also a follow up to last year's challenge. Then my job was new, today it was my last day. I may do this from my new job next week.

The challenge:

III. (a) Travel to or from your workplace one day using a completely different route to any you've ever used before.

which started out as:

III. (b) Travel towards home from your workplace using your usual method, but stay on the first public transport vehicle that you use until either it reaches its terminus or you're about to reach a point where your ticket/pass is no longer valid. Navigate home from here.

My second [community profile] flaneurs June challenge II.(a), walking alongside the railway line, from Leamington Spa to Warwick wasn't an unmitigated success or it would have continued to Warwick Parkway. Also, the com now needs "themes: y halo thar Mr Plod" and "themes: unexpected satanism" tags. ;-) Report at my journal:

Enjoy!

I went for a second walk in Worcester as another II(a) for the June challenge. This time I began on the west or "Welsh" side of the River Severn in St John's (aka Bedwardine), south of the railway, with the intention of walking west along the south side of the railway to the point where the main road, aka A44 the Bromyard Road, crosses north under the railway at more or less the outer edge of the city then crossing to the north side of the railway and walking back to my starting point. It'd be about 3km as the crow flies but city streets and flaneurs tend to wander much more than figurative crows.

Report at my journal with 15 small images.

I went for a walk in Worcester as II(a) of the June challenge. I began on the east side of the River Severn, south of the Worcester viaduct, with the intention of walking east along the south side of the railway until after the lines split then walking north crossing to the north side and walking back to my starting point. I chose to attempt the longest track-side variation of this route because I also wanted to visit both of the city's stations. It'd be about 4km as the crow flies but city streets and flaneurs tend to wander much more than figurative crows. My route also included height variation of 50m between the lowest point by the river and the highest point of Rose Avenue in Tolladine.

Report with 17 small images (at my journal). As ever, feel free to ignore the commentary and enjoy the pictures. :-)
