Remembering a little-used but previously well-known route can be infuriating and inconvenient. When we remember a route, we can either remember a complete route on a map in our head. Or we can remember it as a chain of locations. If we use the chain approach, forgetting one link can be disastrous. We can’t get back on the route because we can only get to the next place directly from the previous one. Try to think if you are a “headmap” person, or a “location chain” person. Use a map in advance to rehearse the route mentally and keep instructions and maps to hand.
