Trip Hero: GARMIN Navigation (Europe Chip)

We get lost more in Orange County then we did driving through Europe with our GARMIN navigation system. I ordered the Euro chip on Amazon before we left and, to our amazement, it never failed. Every nameless road, hairpin turn, tunnel, and freeway showed up. It even directed us to one of Cinqueterre's five (practically car-free) villages, Monterosso al Mare. 

If we had attempted following paper maps, printed directions, or even signs, there would have been many wasted hours, tears, and probably vomit. I'm truly thankful for this technology. If you have a trip planned, make sure your rental car has this device or some comparable navigation.
