No Address? No Problem for the Royal Mail

| |

The United States Postal Service may deliver through sleet and snow but the United Kingdom’s Royal Mail was able to deliver a letter that had no address.  The envelope instead had a hand-drawn map with an arrow indicating “”Somewhere here” as the residential location of a Peter O’Leary.

Paul Bates had forgotten the address of a former coworker and tried to recreate the general location of where his friend had moved to based on his recollection of Peter O’Leary pointing it out on the map.  After a journey of nine days, the letter surprisingly made its way to its intended designation after a postal worker recognized the name and knew where the intended recipient lives.
