Well, my Sat Nav reached an all-time low today. I wanted to get myself from Didcot, back to Cowley (a suburb of Oxford). And for some un-bloody-believable reason it decided that the route (shown in the video below), was part of my optimal route.
Vid No. 1. Call this a road?
Look at it! It is a bloody dirt track! Ok. I might live in the countryside, but that doesn't mean that I wear sackcloth, chomp on dead rats or travel by horse and cart, so why on earth was this particular road planned into my route? You wouldn't have to suffer that indignity in London.... no sirree.
The only good thing about the road was that it took me past a wicked windmill, but I was so preoccupied with the state of the road that I forgot to photograph it for you.
P.S. Whilst I am having a rant about Sat Navs, has anyone else living in Oxford found that the infernal machine doesn't seem to have postcodes that match actual addresses? For example, you type in a postcode and it comes up with a different street to the one you want to go to. So then you try and find the destination by typing in the street name, but it can't find it. It is absolutely maddening and seems to be a lot worse since I moved to darkest deepest Oxfordshire.
Anyway, gotta go, I am off to Oxford City with Izzy (I have planned a surprise treat for her), so let's see where my Sat Un-Nav takes me this time!
