How big?

Scale_map Ever since I arrived I’ve had a bit of a problem with the scale of things in Ireland. I look at the map and assume a much great distance between places than there really is. And the map itself – my map of Dublin is about 80 pages – whereas the Melways for Melbourne is 250 odd pages.
