My grandparents used to live in St. Andrews, but they left over 20 years ago, and I haven't been back since I was five or six years old.  I was looking for their old house, called "Netherburn", and was cycling along the little path which I thought lead to it 
when I suddenly reached this spot:

I actually made a little recording a few minutes later that I will try to upload if I can figure out how, but here was what I said:

I just had the most surreal experience.  I was looking for Netherburn, and I knew it was along this path, and just as I arrived at this point, I suddenly had this really wierd feeling, like my heartbeat suddenly sped up, and I had this tingly feeling all over and I stopped, and I knew that this was it.  I haven't been back here since I was five, but sure enough, just down the road, this was Netherburn.

That's amazing! You found the house.
I always get excited when I find one of my old toys or these no color photo that I can pick up the old memories from my childhood....

Mum will not be pleased to find you've been cycling along Lade Braes, she used to get quite annoyed with people who did, especially her son!!

I have already been admonished about this, both by her and Antony!

I have to say though, I don't think there are any no cycling signs any more, or at least if there are they have faded into unreadability.
