I have a map fetish. For this reason (and my superb navigational skills---thanks for that gene, Dad), I will never ever ever own a G.P.S. I am categorically opposed to those little Garmin goodies which tell you to turn here and exit there.
I love getting my hands on a map, awkwardly unfolding its pages and figuring out where to go. Plotting a route, veering off course, and seeing the grand design of a city is supremely pleasurable for me.
