21 JOUR­NEY WITH­OUT MAPS

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

Ex­plor­ing the by­lanes of an un­fa­mil­iar town with­out a map and scared of get­ting lost? No, you don’t have your phone’s GPS. Be­cause for one, not too many want to use it any­way. And two, if you’re in for­eign lands, us­ing one can prove to be pro­hib­i­tively ex­pen­sive. A sim­pler so­lu­tion is to keep click­ing pic­tures of land­marks and dis­tinct fea­tures at turns and along the way to serve as mem­ory aides with your cam­era. So you can re­fer to them and re­trace your steps. Plus, the im­ages may also turn out to be a nice se­quen­tial doc­u­men­tary of your ex­plo­rations.
