Yes once while travelling from my boarding school to home i got onto the wrong train and and as it was night time i slept only to find mself in a strange town the next morning. The station master told me that no trains went to my home town from that place and i would have to go back to my school town and catch the train for home from there. However the train was next day and so there i was on my own all of 14 years old in a strange town having to spend the night there. I did pretty ok for myself, checked into a lodge, made friends with a visitor from Spain, who treated me to a very nice dinner in a fancy restaurant and till date remains one of my closest friends. Perhaps that event happened just so that i could meet her. She was kind to drop me the next day to the railway station, and i took the train back to my school town and from there to home!!

Actually I have - once I was traveling in Virginia with my family. It was about five in the morning and although the road was at a popular tourist area and was supposed to be marked, there were *no* signs. We were driving around in circles in the dark, and worse, we were having engine trouble and didn't know how long it would be until the car would just stop in the middle of the road. Ugh, what a scary morning that was! Luckily we got everything taken care of but I *never* want to go through anything like that again.

Not only have I gotten lost but I have lost weight while traveling not to mention Luggage. I often just try to get lost so I can find out about the people and how they will help me.

Yes, but it happened when I was travelled in India (not my country)and I was soo puzzled because it was a new place to me. I travelled from Haoraw Railway station to Pandua about 1:30 hrs. journey but I was in gossiping with another man then my train passed to next stoppage and it was another 1 hr. away distance. However, I stopped this station and then waited to return to Pandua and after evening I backed and reached Pandua then reached to my relative's home !! Oh it was a terrible journey to me that day ofcourse one Indian lady co-operated me to return Pandua station without harm after evening as it was my first journey there.
