waist-high jungle to save 100m
Thanks to google maps for taking me up a steep path which started OK, but then turned into waist-high wet grass and no lighting. I'd have turned back, but I didn't want to lose the height and then have to climb again with a heavy rucksack. Wrong decision = wet trousers.
In the morning, I saw that it had saved me all of 100 metres or so, bypassing a perfectly walkable minor road.
Austria, since you asked. I'd have used the OS if it was the UK
