Task "digital detox"

Today we tend to trust a GPS or our smartphone to help us get somewhere. What if we did a digital detox and went back to the times of the explorers?

Choose an unfamiliar spot where you would like to go (for example, the following artwork). Try to get there without using a GPS or smartphone. How does it feel to try to find your way without digital assistance? Maybe you have had some interesting encounters because you had to ask for directions? And do you look around more, instead of looking at your screen?
