My latest walking challenge was through New York which was nice as it is one of the few places I really want to visit before I expire.
The challenge this time was 42km / 26 miles and started at Prospect Park. As always at each place, there is a virtual postcard and I got to learn a lot about each place, so that is a bonus. The medal is like the others, chunky and well made and in a presentation box, but this one glows in the dark, the city skyline glows, so that is a bit of fun.
- Prospect Park – Starting Point
- Brooklyn Bridge
- Flatiron Building
- Empire Stat Building
- St. Patrick’s Cathedral
- Rockefeller Center
- The Museum of Modern Art
- The Metropolitan Museum fo Art
- Central Park
- Times Square
- World Trade Center
- Charging Bull
- Statue of Liberty – End Point
I am going to do Paris next which is 60km, and as I seem to be doing city walks I may continue with those challenges for now. I would like to do a big challenge like Camino de Santiago which is 819km / 509 miles. Conqueror does Route 66 which is 3669km / 2280 miles but the medal does not look all that good, and Pacer medals are really nice and chunky. I will keep looking out for other challenges.
