This is part 6 of the puzzle series Around the World in Many Days. Each part is solvable on its own.
Looks like I’m getting way behind schedule already. Sorry about that! Time flies when you’re having fun, which I definitely am. Don’t worry, I’ll try to catch up in the coming weeks! The goal is still a new puzzle every Saturday.
This one is a mid-loop puzzle. Draw a loop that passes through all the black circles in the grid, going horizontally or vertically through centres of cells without crossing itself or branching out. Each black circle must be in the middle of the straight segment that passes through it. For example, if the loop goes straight for three cells before passing through the circle, it must continue straight for three cells in the other direction and then turn. In the finished grid, start from the leftmost column and follow the loop clockwise, reading every letter that has a black circle entirely in its cell.
Today I have boarded a historic passenger ferry to explore the shores of a major body of water. Hopefully in schedule, but with my track record, maybe I can’t expect much... Can you guess where I am?
