For Map Geeks

I love maps.

We have a SatNav and Anne has the famous Karen, but you just can't beat opening up a map, searching for a place, then folding it up and opening it again the right way round... yup, I love maps.

Seriously though, looking at a map gives you an overview of where you are that is sadly lacking from a SatNav.  And while GoogleMaps is brilliant, nobody really wants to incur Data Roaming charges while they're abroad so it's a non-starter really.

So anyway, here's the first of what will probably be several maps.  This is our probable route from Cork, via Rosslare to Cherbourg and on to Cereste via Le Mans and Lyons.
Interestingly, GoogleMaps wanted to send us via Paris and the Peripherique.  Who in their right mind would want to do that!

When we get to Cereste, we'll post maps of any interesting rides we do, or even any interesting vineyard tours we do.

As for the return journey..... that's gonna be a whole different story!  Watch this space!


  1. Hi Martine.

    I can't wait for you to get on the road. This all seems to so real, just reading about it! Posting the map is a great idea.

    Exciting, jealousy-inciting stuff!

  2. Thanks, Bill! Lovely to see your calling card :)
