View of one of the outbuildings from the roof of Dover Castle
It’s not that I don’t read directions when I receive them (okay I don’t, at least not very well) but who knew a castle could have so many corridors. Well actually I did, still, I have a map and directions too, but I figured I could just follow the map. Looked simply enough. Right turn here, left turn there and so on until I should have ended up in the dining room.
It was nice to be invited for the festive holiday weekend, but between the cold drafty bedroom, poorly lit hallways, well let’s just say I’d be glad when it was time to go.
Now it appeared, instead of freezing, I’d starve to death before finding my way to the dining room.
Finally I looked at the directions again squinting in the poor light to make out the clearly printed words at the bottom of the sheet of paper.
What I found there, that I should have read in the beginning said, “When you think you’ve gotten enough exercise, use your cell phone and call this number. We’ll come and get you for dinner.”
Proving the point you should read ALL the directions first!
