    Maybe if you can recall other details, like why you were in that area, or if you had anyone with you. It may help jog your memory.

    Believe it or not, smell is the sense that is most directly connected to memory. If you can recall some significant scent from a place, such as the odours in a restaurant where you had lunch, it might trigger enough visual memory for you to recognize where it was.
