    Hello there. So you want to go for a walk? You, my friend, are smashing. This little document should help cover any questions that you may have about the map and the exciting journey that you are about to undertake. Heres what it covers:

    The Map. The Idea.

    The original walk.

    On the 22nd August 2016, I went for what turned out to be a marvellous, 19km stroll through the streets of Munich. It was splendid. I was armed with some snacks, a Field Notes note pad and a nice pen. I didnt know where I was going to end up my final destination was a mystery. All I knew was that I was going to take 90 turns and mark these turns as waypoints.

    My walk your walk.

    Heres the idea: Id like you to take the same walk but in your part of the world; take the turns I took, turn left, turn right and make wildcard decisions of your own (more about them later).

    The 90 waypoint walk is an experiment: Id like you to use the 90 waypoint map to explore your city, town, village and arrive at your own final photo finish. One map and a million different stories.

    How to use the map.Instructions1. Print out the 90 waypoint map.

    2. Start anywhere you want.

    3. Follow the turns on the map when you reach a junction.

    4. You have 10 wildcards. If you reach a junction and the street doesnt tickle your fancy then you can use a wildcard. Just carry on walking until you find a street that appeals to you and then make your turn. Wildcards add to the adventure.

    5. Tick of the waypoints. Make notes, take photographs and explore your city. Let people know youre on the walk by using the #90waypoint hashtag on Twitter or Instagram.

    6. The final waypoint is a turn right. Congratulations, youve arrived! Where the devil are you? Explore this waypoint and document your destination with a photograph.

    7. Send me the photograph and an account of your magnificent walk.

    Do This Stuff Do enjoy the walk. Dont rush it - just take your time. Let someone know that youre going on the walk. Better

    still, take someone with you.

    Stay alert. Be conscious of the people, cyclists and traffic around you.

    Take photographs, make some notes and really get into the adventure of (re)discovering where you are.

    Take breaks every so often. Sip on a cool drink, enjoy a snack or a meal. Enjoy the day.

    Don't Do This Stuff Dont go anywhere where you feel unsafe. If youre concerned

    about your safety, then stop the walk immediately.

    Dont trespass and dont break the law. You must stay on streets or pathways that are open to the public and pedestrians.

    Preparing your walk.Snacks, water and equipment.Youre not climbing Everest nor about to start an expedition to the North Pole but you are stepping out on a journey that can take a couple of hours. You dont really know how long your going to be out there so youll need to pack a few things into a bag and take them with you.

    1. Youll be burning carbs so take some snacks with you: apples, muesli bars or sandwiches.

    2. Youll be sweating so take something to drink with you: water and juices.

    3. Make sure that your mobile phone is charged. You may need to check your location on a map and take photographs with your phone. I take a couple of external power packs with me.

    4. Pack a note book and have a pen. Youll find that your mind will wander youll have ideas so make sure you can write them down.

    5. Got a camera? Take it with you for those extra special shots.

    tracking your walk.Steps and Kilometres.Tracking your journey, the steps and time youve taken and the kilometres youve covered isnt compulsory. But it would be really helpful to get this information from you so that we can share this with with other 90 waypoint walkers. It may also surprise you how far youve walked.

    Here are some ways to track your walk

    1. Use a GPS device. I have a Garmin etrex touch 35. You may have something similar.

    2. Fitness trackers from companies such as Withings or Jawbone track times, steps and distances.

    3. You can install apps such as walkmeter onto your mobile phone and record your expedition.

    Feedback and documentation.Feedback.Id love to hear about your walk: how it felt, what you encountered the sounds, smells and the people your saw. Weve taken the same turns and passed through the same waypoints, you and I but each journey was fundamentally different. I find that incredibly exciting. Please let me know what you experienced.

    Documentation.1. Send me your photo finish. Youll get full credit, of course!

    2. Ill be documenting all of the walks on www.marcusjohnhenrybrown.com.

    3. Use the #90waypoint hashtag when youre out on the walk.
