A MAN is furious after his girlfriend ignored his decree on asking a stranger for directions to their hotel.
After an hour and a half of walking in circles around Barcelona city centre with heavy luggage, Nathan Muir’s girlfriend Sarah Thomson decided to just bloody ask someone.
Standing outside a tapas bar the couple have passed by three times in the last 15 minutes, Muir said: “She’s making us look like twats. We’re not lost, we’re just in the process of finding our way.
“If we ask someone to help us every time we’re uncertain about where to go, we might as well not bother going anywhere new.
“For me, this is as much a Ray Mears-level survival exercise as it is a mini-break and I’m not relying on some patronising local bastard to tell me where my hotel is.
“I’ve got a map on my phone, it’s just loading in a weird way – and these streets are laid out really badly”.
Thomson said: “We’re not chartering undiscovered lands, we’re trying to find the fucking Ibis.
“We’re going to wander around for hours this evening arguing about where to eat. Or maybe he’d rather we go down to the seafront and spear our own fish.”
