We Got Lost...!

Yesterday, we went to Doncaster to picked my son's bed. But we got lost, the sat nav. sent us to the different direction and it's crazy coz everytime it gives you a direction you always surprised which way you going. Then again we went to different direction until we get back on the right way. Have you tried lost somewhere which is your unfamiliar because of the wrong direction given to you? Happy posting.

really? and I thought it was very reliable, well here in our country we still have no sat navigation, only fellow pinoys who are very much willing to give directions. but me and hubby always got lost specially in Manila streets, it is very confusing!

What's sat nav.?? hehe =D I hate it when ple give me wrong directions causing me to go a big round, and if i were to meet those ple again, i will sure to be giving them a good scolding.. BEcause some ple will purposely give the wrong directions, as they dun wanna say they dunno.. So they will just anyhow point and hopefully that they will be right in their guessing.. lol =D But they din think that if i'm in a rush, their guess might nmake me late for something important.. Thus, if we dunno the directions to anywhere, just simply say dunno, and nobody will ever blame us for that ^_^

I am sorry to hear that despite having a sa nav you got lost. Luckily you found the right way eventually and got your son's new bed. In Bulgaria I couldn't read the language so I often got lost. The same happened to me in Estonia because of the lack of street signs. I used to live in a village three miles from the city and so I had a go at walking there. I got on fine going there but wanted to find a different route home. I went way off course and came to the motorway and I had to go along until I found a place to safely cross it. That was by using an underpass. I got to a village and when I found out which one I was surprised. I asked a farmer which way it was to my village. He said there wasn't a footpath but told me I would have to cut across the fields if I didn't want to walk many miles further along the road. It was difficult to find my way over all the fields. I was exhausted by the time I did get home.

Yes, my bf's GPS got us lost. I guess it was our fault in the end but that's besides the point. I live in Canada and was trying to get to the mall in Buffalo, NY. We made it to the border just fine but then the GPS started telling us to get off the highway. Now I always take the highway there and I have paper directions that are years old but they always get me there. This GPS brought us all over the place and it took 10 times longer to get there plus it brought us through neighbourhoods I don't think we should have been in. It looked really rough. Anyways, we finally end up getting there, and we realize, we had taken the option of Toll Roads off the GPS when we were in Canada, I guess the highways in the USA are classed as Toll Roads so it took us a round about way. We now know to check that Toll Roads are ON when go the mall again.
