Here's a rough idea.
Mention about how you went travelling with a bunch of friends. You felt like a bird flying freely because your parents aren't with you to boss you around. You visited a country you're unfamiliar with and did not want to go with a tour thinking that it's quite annoying to follow their schedule. You and your friends wants to experience new things and wanted to do everything on your own. So when you reach that country, you grabbed your luggage and head out to buy a coffee with your friends. After that you guys got up on a cab heading to the hotel you guys booked. However the taxi driver didn't know where it is and couldn't understand you. Its a foreign country after all. He decides to drop you off halfway through the journey. You're officially lost in a city. Kindly continue this story yourself.
