The Paris trip approaches rapidly and I have had so
many questions answered here without asking! Thanks to
I heard a very interesting commentary on radio the
other day regarding certain people's obsession/ability
to determine direction and location. I guess I fall
into that category, thanks to the Boy Scouts I guess.
:) So, I have poured over maps on the internet,
purchased a Paris map, studied Metro/bus maps, etc and
still I crave more. Yes, I am a bit anal-retentive
about knowing how to get somewhere expeditiously so
that I waste no time in travel and allow myself time
to enjoy the destination. It ain't the journey I
enjoy, just the destination.
Now, I fully intend to disregard this expedient travel
plan when walking in Paris. Hence, I will most likely
end up consumed with the thought of not knowing my
exact location and cause myself great anxiety
concerning my unknown whereabouts! ;) Rather than
drive myself crazy by constantly looking at a map and
missing the world, I am considering taking my handheld
GPS and accessing it when I feel the need to know
where exactly I am positioned.
Has anyone used one of these in a foreign destination
with any success? Sorry for the long-winded
pontification. I should probably seek help, but I
would spend so much time trying to find it......
