I've always loved maps since I was a little girl. In the backseat I studied the thomas guide and learned everything about Los Angeles.
When I left Los Angeles for Harvard, I found comfort in my new home by studying it's streets. Wandering around in the snow and finding new places brought comfort to the fact that I was so far away from home.
After returning to Los Angeles for a few years I left again. Now, I reside in the Bay Area, as a newlywed, discovering a whole new world (yes I'm a Disney kid).
To find that same comfort in a new place, I need to study these cities, SF and Oakland. Doing so proviedes excitement and confidence. I want to share all the new discoveries. To capture them on a simple map or maybe a series.
Being new to this city gives me a fresh vantage. To see thinks that what everyone else who's lived here for so long misses.
Family and friends, blog readers, traverlers and locals
Digital at first for my blog, would love if after some editing to become print. Either for home decor or travel advice.
Definitely names and general locations. Maybe addresses in a key or notes with links to the points of interest.
Graphic design! I'm very new and would love any assistance ;)
