Let me start by saying that "getting lost" was not our original goal. My roommate and I were taking on Europe together with the rest of our study abroad program, while the entire organization "forgot" us at the top of the Eiffel Tower (....yeah I don't believe it either). Once we reached the ground, we realized they were no where to be found. Without cellular data and knowledge of the foreign language, we had to make the best of the situation. We found two women who spoke English, and they told us that if we would just follow the river that we would find Notre Dame. After walking several miles (and breaking the heel of my boots), we ran into Notre Dame. We thought this would solve all of our problems, but of course it did not. I still had a broken shoe, and we were not any more sure of how to make it back to our hotel. I found a random boutique to buy some new booties, and fortunately for us... The McDonald's next door had wifi! Long story short... we made it back to our hotel. I don't wish that kind of fear on anyone, but it really does make you learn your way around and appreciate the people and culture.

It is really nice because you see new places, and you can get out easy using Google Maps ;)

 Went to Bangkok Thailand in January 2016.  The 2nd day that I was there, I was trying to walk back to the hotel from a street market.  I followed Google maps directions and ended up walking though an alley that smelled like pee, crossing a bridge where a man was dumping his bucket of pee into the water and walking through shady neighborhoods

 I lost when we went to visit Lisbon Castle with my firends. I stopped to tie my shoes and when I looked back they were gone. It happened in few seconds. We were in the castle and it was full of tourist. Since we came all together from Bilbao (had spanish sim cards) I was not able to contact them. I tried to find a wifi spot and when I did I texted them. The problem was that they got so nervous and searching for me everywhere. They even thought I felt down from the castle walls that we were walking by. Meanwhile I couldn't know what to do or where to wait them. We found each other 2 hours later, I am glad we did :))

When arriving in Czech Republic me and my friend needed to find a specific train station in Prague from which our train to Ostrava would leave, and we decided to walk rather than use the metro, and well we got lost. We found our way in the end though and we got to see a lot of the city while walking so it was pretty fun. And when I told me friend that getting lost in another county was on my bucketlist she simply replied "well Czech!"

We knew exactly were we were, but we couldn't remember the way back to our hotel nor could we recall the name of it ... Anyway, Rome is a great city to get lost in! Finally a friendly old man in a white suit understood our lousy description of the hotel's surroundings and guided us home.

London, 1992 or so.

The fun with this is that you will see parts of the town you wouldn't have seen otherwise and experience things people don't usually experience. I tried to get from Pall Mall to Mall through Clarence House. I was very politely turned back. :-D

Got lost in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong.

I was advised by my friends to bring a map with me. But where's the fun in that? So, I didn't have any map with me. I did a quick research and tried to remember how to get from one place to another by heart. I walked around Tsim Sha Tsui and followed the road signs and it wasn't that hard but it did require a lot of walking which made everything much more fun!
