Map of Aegina Island (Maps of Greek islands)
5.0 out of 5 stars Good detail, 29 Nov 2013
We are spoiled in the UK with superb OS maps. So often elsewhere the only maps are low on detail, out of date or just plain wrong. But we found no fault with this one. It seems to have been made, for a change, by someone whose surveying skills triumphed over imagination. We only had a few days and a rental car, but never got lost. More accurate detail of footpaths would have been good, but at least the roads where as shown on the map.

Something I ordered elsewhere later that day with free postage arrived next day by Royal Mail, so I was very disappointed that the Ascorbic Acid did not arrive until the Friday. I would have hoped that express delivery, costing about a third as much again as the goods, could have been 'next day' or at least First Class. So I recommend the product, but not if you are in a hurry,… Read more
