8 reasons why map love is good for you

  1. They show you the way.
  2. Maps now come in the form of a GPS that tell you where to go in a nice voice (if you know what I mean).....
  3. GPS Maps tell you where to go before you turn the corner on a one way street.
  4. Maps are a piece of art in their own right.
  5. Old Maps (and locations) are a piece of nostalgia.
  6. Maps come in many forms from treasure maps to a pocket street directory.
  7. Following a map is an adventure.
  8. Maps give you a sense of security in a foreign place.
