My first post is actually in preparation for the many adventures I hope to have and write about — I added an “Adventure Map” to the site so you can see where I have been and plan on going soon.
My plan is to hit up every part of town and not have any “dead zones.” If there is a part of town I have not been to, the map will show me in the lack of markers, and I will make more of an effort to research and explore that area. I hope that by visually representing my adventures this way, I can learn the streets and neighborhoods more quickly and have a better understanding of how this city fits together. My goal is to develop mental map of Los Angeles on par with your friendly neighborhood superhero — to know where to take people, what areas I might want to avoid, and maybe some taxi driver shortcuts when I am putting around.
If you know of any spots I have not marked but should check out, let me know with this contact form!
