# Ubuntu – Restore ‘cd ..’ functionality after following a symbolic link

If I create a symbolic link in the terminal with a command like

ln -s /path/to/some/directory symbolicLink

cd symbolicLink
the terminal appears to think that the cwd is ~/symbolicLink/ even though it is actually showing ~/path/to/some/directory/ (assuming that the link was made in ~, of course). What this means is that if I then type cd .. I am taken back to ~, because the terminal 'thinks' this is the parent of the cwd.
What would I need to change such that cd .. would instead take me to ~/path/to/some/, i.e. the real parent of ~/path/to/some/directory/?
