    Me and the Mrs have just got back from Italy and the amount of Germans that asked me questions in the street was amazing. I can only assume that I look German as it was quite frequent, but not just directions, mobile phone and travel agent advice too. Very odd.
    Perhaps you look like an Italian that speaks German?

      I've twice been singled out on train platforms and been asked for directions by Germans. In one case, they walked about 20m passing a dozen or so people to ask me. They must have guessed I looked like someone who spoke German but how they knew this, I have no idea. I certainly don't look German so it's not that.

      I just look old ( because I am) but that didn't stop 11 (eleven) consecutive groups of travellers/tourists asking me for directions at Farringdon a week or so ago. Almost turned into a game of Mornington Crescent...

      Someone once asked me where the Sainsburys on Lewes rd was? This was 22 years ago come November.

      Frightening experience.

      I get given directions where to go occasionally and usually not very politely.
