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?
assuming all the roads are straight he would have to continue turning right at each crossroads, or left at each to circle back, otherwise he will keep on a straight line away from his palace seeing as there are no dead-ends and assuming all the roads are a straight path.
