    I am really bad at not updating our road maps, Bev hates with a passion Tom Toms or any other form of audible sat nav, but will concede as long as she can oversee with a map

    decided (was asked to quite firmly) to buy a new map for next weeks travels

    nearly bought one of these for £12 plus P+P then found this, identical to our 2012 version, possibly only except for date on front :LOL:, but roads seem to change so often in France

    anyway, seemed like a good price thought I would share :)

    Jen likes a map as well, but then which one do you listen to,

    The one that knows where it's going or the one that cooks tea;)

    Good price that, but my eyes prefer the BIG EASY READ version.

    that's because you go to too many countries, you would be over weight for sure if you carried all the maps you would need :LOL:

    typical, it wouldn't have mattered if I had found one for 50p, someone would have found it cheaper :)

    hope yours takes you to as many nice places as we hope ours will (y)

    didn't realise there was such a version, would be interesting to compare the two side by side :)

    The big easy read covers 3 miles to the inch where as the other is 4.5 miles to the inch.

    Thanks for the reminder @DavidG58 checked our newest map and it turned out to be 2002 and falling to pieces. So just bought a copy (y).

    thanks for that, but you put the same link with your first post, it doesn't show enough detail to compare

    I am all for big writing / pictures saves me admitting my eyes are not as young as the rest of me :LOL:

    edit - sneaky, but funny (y), there was only one image when I replied :)

    going back in again to buy the other as well, I am sure they will both come in handy (y)
