Find your bearings

Navigating through unknown territories and moving on unfamiliar ground, both real and literally seen, often make us feel insecure. Landmarks prevent us from getting lost.

Every day, we use numerous landmarks. Most of them, we use automatically – passing by the post office, take a left after the petrol station, over the bridge up to the green house, next to the church. What makes up a good landmark?

Obviously, it is meant to stick out and to be remarkable. If we lose our compass, we look out for reference points or seek guidance.
