NEW WALKING MAPS
November 2010 : Following an enquiry from one of our members - A message from Ivy at Anavasi.gr
The map of Mani: Aghios Nikolaos Traxila has been out of stock for over 3 years now.
It will be in stock in Winter - Spring 2011, but in a totally different concept, look and format. As Mani: Kardhamili went out of stock too, we will merge these two maps and extend them to the wider area too (I can't tell how much yet, though) and make one superb walking map for Exo Mani (that is the Messinian part of Mani).
It will remain in the same scale 1:25 000 but that's about the only thing that will remain the same! We are now using a high (see high-end) resistant paper (actually paper only by name - it's plastic). Totally indestructible, totally water-proof, totally damage-proof and of course fold-proof. We will walk all the new footpaths in the area and record all changes in the road network.
Footpath descriptions will be enriched with photos and elevation diagrams. With a richer key to the map we will be able to show more on local culture and development. For eg. in our new 1:250 000 Macedonia map we pin-point the wineries, in our Peloponnese map the "Xenia" hotels/hostels part of our architectural inheritance.
