The Daily Prompt today is called Wrong Turns and it asks;
When was the last time you got lost? Was it an enjoyable experience, or a stressful one? Tell us all about it.
Honestly I can’t remember the last time I got lost. I have a pretty good sense of direction and if I’ve been to a place once I’m always able to retrace my steps so I can either find my way back home or find my way there again.
Seriously I can’t count the number of times that has saved me on nights out after I’ve had a few drinks. My feet just sort of gone into auto-pilot and I leave them to it.
If I’m going to a place I’ve never been to before I do a virtual walk of the entire route on Google maps. It really helps you to get a feel of the place and helps you know what shops and buildings to look out for. If you have to go to a place you’ve never been to before I recommend it.
Go onto Google maps and ask for directions from your starting point to your destination and go into street view and just keep clicking to walk along the street. I’ve never struggled to find a place since I started using this technique.
Hopefully that will help some of you out in the future.
