Introduction:
Well, it is not uncommon to see people making use of maps to find direction while visiting a new place or when they are lost.

When and where you were?
Here I would like to talk about an incident where I was lost and found my way with the help of a map.

A few months ago, I was with my friends in Manali for the holidays. From locals, we learnt about bicycle tour, which is quite popular among tourists.

It was off the road tour where people can observe pristine nature in terms of lakes, springs, waterfalls and others. The next day we rented bikes and set off for this tour. But I was not able to pace up with my friends since I am a slow rider.

How you were lost?
Eventually, I was nowhere close to them. At this time I decided to take a shortcut through the bushes, but I got lost. I started to panic because I couldn’t find the track. There was no connectivity so I could not even call my friends for help. Luckily, with the rental bicycle, we got a map of the local area.

It was not easy to comprehend(understand) it, but I tried to identify the landmarks by taking help of the map and reference of the direction of sunlight.

How did you feel?
It took me more than 2 hours to find the direction but, finally, I got on to the right track and I was on cloud 9 nine.

How was your overall experience?
Soon, I saw my friends coming from the other side who were so happy to see me as they had been looking for me during this time.

Conclusion:
Overall, it was the time when I was lost at a paper map helped me out.
