“I am not from here”

I do not know what it is but I must have something in my face or in my way to move which makes people asking me for directions.

I am asked always and everywhere. And especially when I am in a city for just a day. Seriously. I have been asked in London, Lille, Cape Town, Berlin, Berlin, Berlin (lot of tourists), Grenoble, Paris, and so on.

I can even see it when people are looking for someone who might be able to give them directions. They look, they see me, they ask me.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining (nein, Maria, wirklich nicht) but I am wondering what makes me look like someone trustworthy and well informed about the place…

Actually, I think I like it.
