Using Google maps as a guide, Maria draws small maps like this when traveling to unfamiliar places in Lisbon. Small maps, like this one, fit conveniently in her pocket for easy reference. This map directed her to four different bookbinders in the Chiado/Bairro Alto area. Check out more of her maps here poplastik.com.

These maps remind me of the small maps drawn by Matthew Rodriguez to help him navigate various parts of New York City. Lately, I've been doing the same thing here in Philadelphia. While I could print out a map from Google or use my phone, I find drawing the map on paper helps me commit the area to memory.
