Maps have served me well.
Today will be a good day if I can find a map of Izmir, the city we arrived in yesterday.
Really, my most favoritest map is of my hometown, with which I can glean unwritten information bout the city and tiny suburb I have loved all my life. Just the street names can be rapturous!
L-o-o-o-o-v-e maps! Yeah, use GoogleMaps to find stuff nowadays a lot of the time, but the REAL travel adventure is always accompanied by much paper rustling and refolding. Can’t tell you how many gems we’ve found just because of a curious name on a good ole paper map! Could read ’em for hours!
You remind me here of the uneasy tension in our marriage in which I vie for your affections with a tattered AAA map of Wyoming.
We both have Grand Tetons, after all, so it’s a draw.
oooh gps makes me crazy. i don’t own one. maps. yes! maps! though if i am driving i do like to check google maps before because it’s easier to glance at something large with written directions rather than find my way on a map with itty bitty printing while i am driving. but i always pull up the map to get the overview. and man the AAA maps, i have lived by those and the rand macnally road atlases.
one more thing, do you like to read the gazeteer at the back of an atlas?
yes…I remember one time I was working on the brakes of my car with a friend who knew what he was doing. Since I was (and still am) auto-ignorant my job was to pump the brake pedal and to bleed the air out of the brake lines. Something wasn’t working right and I pumped those brakes for an hour, all the while reading out loud from the back of the atlas to my friend as he cursed under the car. If you ever meet Michael Wehling ask him if he knows there is a Dr. Pepper museum in Waco, TX. He just might punch you.
Oh you naughty girl.
Not wild about GPS, either. Do love my Gazetteer!
