When we first moved here I could have really done with a map. Just to show the alternative routes through town more than anything! I have a hideous sense of direction, so even with the Rock looming large I’d find myself wandering down dead ends.
It would have also proved very useful on cruise ship days. Those alternative routes are the key to staying sane, as the streets get so packed it is enough to trigger a phobia of sorts! And it would have also be nice to know where certain points of interest were hidden away.
Well I shall get to my point!
At numerous locations around the peninsular we now have maps for sale. The are £1 or €1 and are really cute keep sakes as well. They are printed in a ‘3D’ format. (Not ‘pop-up’ like my brother hoped when we took one back to the UK, that would be an idea though, although perhaps not that practical for finding your way around on a windy day!) But they also contain details on where to eat and things to see and other local businesses. They are well worth the money in my opinion.
