Trianglia is a jacked-up island where no road has a dead end, and all the crossroads are "Y" shaped. The young prince of Trianglia mounts his horse, and is about to go on a quest to explore the land of Trianglia.

He gets to the road by his palace, when the mother queen comes out and shouts: "But Charles, how will you find your way back?". "Don't worry Elizabeth", the prince replies, "I will turn right in every second crossroad to which I arrive, and left otherwise. Thus I shall surely return to the palace sooner or later."

Is the prince right?

I assumed that the prince uses this technique to get home from anywhere on the island and not necessarily for getting to that place.

I can't help but mention how strange it is that he calls his mother by her first name... :)
