  Where to now?
by wise23girl

Believe me you set off from the door of your hotel (no not the water door) and turn into the narrow go over a bridge and turn again and you come to a little square where there is a shop selling coffee....after you have enjoyed a rest in the 'back streets' you look at the walkways leading off the square...which way ?you wonder.

The buildings have you know your address but here is another turn....what number now? There are many hotels....the locals cannot understand you...the rest are tourists looking for their way back.

So next time we took a map with was some help....But the best way is to take a pen and paper and write down your own very exact and turn around a make the marker easy to see as you are going back.

Oh and have the name and number of your hotel with you and a map showing the location of the hotel...but it is quite a feat to have worked it out yourself

Ok you are have a GPS thing...great

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
