What3Words is a really simple way to talk about a location.
Every part of the planet has been divided up into 3 metre squares and given a unique 3 word address that will never change.
For example ///bathwater.eggplants.summered are the 3 words assigned to the church in the village of St Josse close to our holiday rental.
Why does this matter?
Three word addresses are easy to communicate to family and friends and are as accurate as GPS co-ordinates. Post code systems are often not that accurate when a location is hard to find. In France this is even more useful as the Le Touquet postcode 62520 covers the entire town. If you have lost your friends on the beach use what3words to tell them where you are. For example if you said meet me at ///glimpse.stinger.freckled you would be in the middle of the beach in front of the Aqualud water park in Le Touquet.
