Hello. My name is Vladislav. I'm from Russia. In my hometown it is very difficult to get lost, because it is very small. And there are two main streets and that’s it.
Yes, I gave directions to the visitor. It was in another city. One foreigner approached me and I showed him the way, I don’t remember what he asked

Hi everyone .
I live in BATNA , Its number 05 of 48 states in ALGERIA , I never get lost in BATNA's streets , because i born and living there , and its a litttle big city
I work in my coffe shop in the center shoping , I do meeting a lot of visitor who theiy comes from the villages and from every where , And theiy do asking for their own destinations , soo i help them

hello, i am italian and i live in the southes of Italy. My city is not very big, like as Milan or Rome or Florence so, i think, it is difficult to lose myself there. my city is organized in a modular way. I live near the airport and i always take the bus to go in the city centre on the airport bus park. Sometimes i meet turists on the bus , not only italian tourist but also english or french or spanish ones. I always ask them if they want i help them with the directions where they are going to. I love help them expecially when the visitors are foreign, i can improve my english and challenge myself.

I think it's easy to get lost in my village, although on the way to get there that a lot of boards that show informations about the regions and streets. But plenty of my friends have lost when they tried to find out the right way. So finally, i was compelled to direct them ...!!! It's a especially experience for me

I live in a large city. However, there are lots of boards that show regions and streets. I have already given address to visitors but nowadays some applications such as Waze and Google Maps help to find a direction to destinations.

It's not hard to get lost everywhere where you are the first time. Doesn't matter how big town it is. My town is quite big, has three hundred thousand of population. There are many streets and buildings, so be lost is possibly indeed and I sometimes give any direction to a visitor.

I live in Saudi Arabia in Riyadh city. It is a big city and but I can give directions but you must in the est part.

My Town is difficult to find because the number of road exist just in the plan. But if you come with an ivorian, it will be easy. My town is near the biggest University of the country. If you arrived at the University, call me and I will come to take you.

My town is tiny and simple, so there is no chance to get lost there.

Have I ever given directions to a visitor?
yes, I have but wrong directions ;)

I live in a enough big city, over 1 million people. So there is not so hard to lost here.
Yes, I have helped people find places several times.
