Problem type

Eric wants to visit all N of his friends. Each friend lives at house i, labelled from 1 to N. Each house is separated by a single kilometre, meaning that the distance between house i and house j would be |i-j|. He decides to be a "cool kid", and not travel a certain distance more than once.

For example, if there are 3 houses, he could start at the third house, proceed to the first house, and visit the second house last, with travel distances of [2, 1].

Eric must visit all of the N houses. Can you output a sequence that Eric can follow, such that he visits all N houses and never travels the same distance twice?
