Lost in Iceland
When 28-year old New Jersey tourist Noel Santillan arrived at Iceland's main international airport last February, he was only 30 minutes from his hotel. So he did what most people do these days. He plugged in the address into his GPS unit and followed the directions it spit out to him. Unfortunately for him he had mistyped the name of his destination — he added an extra "r." Over the next five hours he drove steadily north to Laugarvegur (instead of Laugavegur) ignoring the voice inside his head telling him something was not right. By the time he arrived at his destination he was on the desolate northern tip of the country. Luckily the woman whose door he knocked on took pity on him, and pointed him to the local hotel, where he awoke the next day a celebrity. His story, which the helpful woman had posted online, had gone viral. For the next week everywhere he went people wanted to meet him, especially when he got lost again a few days later, from following his GPS.
