This is a fascinating project to give a location anywhere in the world when standard addressing fails or does not exist.

I take a train from clown.stay.themes to palace.bride.single. Just be sure to get your words right. Trying to meet me near palace.bridge.single will not help you.

Even in developed countries, addresses can change. In my lifetime (about 3 decades) my father’s address has changed three times.

First, it was a Rural Route and a Box number: Route 2 Box 4794.
Then, when the county decided it needed to have real addresses to aid emergency response, it changed to 1511 Kimble Road. Finally, it has changed yet again to a new road name and number because of a shift in how the county decided to handle addressing.

So even in the United States, 60 miles from the Washington, D.C. addressing is still a problem. He lives out near hogs.dogs.improving which is a fitting address for my hometown.
