A Knight bored of his chess game leaves his board of boredom and enters
the grid of letters shown below, in the north west corner, at the letter A.
After twenty-five moves, he exits the grid near the south east corner at the letter Z.
In between he lands on each letter, once, in proper sequence.

Can you trace his path?

In describing your answer, each move can be described as two letters.
For example,
  • SE would mean two spaces South, one space East.
  • ES would mean two spaces East, one space South.
That is, the direction of the two-space move is mentioned first.

Women are definitely stronger. We are [Fe]males, after all...

Some of what makes me me is real, some of what makes me me is imaginary...I guess I'm just complex. ;P

<3 BBC's Sherlock, the series and the man. "Smart is the new sexy."

Chromatic Witch links now on my 'About Me' page!  Episode 3 is finally here!

You're right.
I should have inserted some reverse blind alleys.
