‘This is the way …’

I resisted acquiring satellite-navigation (sat-nav) equipment for my car as long as I could. As a geography graduate, I had a good sense of direction and enjoyed the challenge and stimulus of navigating my own way to places I needed to go. I used street maps when necessary, but never used any other aid or equipment apart from street signs. 

However, things changed when I got lost in the middle of England on a holiday break with my wife while driving to my sister’s house on the south coast of England. When I arrived at her house much later than expected, I had to explain that I had got lost. My reliance on conventional means to navigate had failed.
