My hometown is a small village in Lam Dong. It's don't have lots of streets so I never got lost before. One time when I was in Saigon there was a foreigner who asked me the way to go to the Notre Dame Cathedral but as I just a visitor like him too so I can't tell him where is it.

Hi everyone,
I'm italian and i live in Bologna but it isn't my hometown. I'm here for University. Anyway, my hometown is a little city in the centre of italy. Vary cute! it's possibile arrive with airplane in a near city, and later takes a train. the train trip lasts 40 minuts.
The city is divides in 2 part, one of this is the old town is located on a hill... the view is amazing becuase overlook the bay.
the second part it located near the sea and it's a tourist destination i don't like it because it's lived only in summer.
Mainly there are italian tourists, but sometime there is tourists from England or Germany. It's a quite city, nice for relaxing and for a walk near the sea.

I so love Italy. I hope very soon all the epidemic will end soon and Italian will be happy again.

The city where I live is very small one, so I think it is very easy to give a direction. Till now I've never gievn a direction to visitors, I hope I do it a day.

I'm living in Hanoi, it's a big city in Viet Nam. Of course it is very easy to get lost in here, we have old quarter erea with small street and many ancient houses. I think it's complicated for tourist to travel in Hanoi. I have given directions for a visitor when I was a child. A men asked me the way go to Hoan Kiem lake and I helped him with his map.

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

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.
