About 10 years ago, I was working in Denmark, as a consultant for a larger sized company. I knew I had to drive a lot, so I

I thought, then we just have to do it the alternative way.

He thought it was a bit strange, but continued talking his day, and how busy he had been.
The bell on the door rang, and a customer came in. I told him I was okay, and that I found his beacon, he laughed: I will see you in an hour
I drove towards Sweden, no map and no GPS, just follow his beacon.
