I think the one thing I like about exploring destinations the most is finding spots in the most obscure places. Take this place for instance. Would probably be easy to find no? But, geo tags only get you so far. At first I thought head to this community walk around and in no time I’ll find this place. On the contrary, this place was hidden on top of a car park. I probably asked a half dozen people where it was most of them all adults. Asked a kid if he knew where it was and he pointed 5 levels up from the courtyard of the high density housing units.
I use a combination of a bunch of things to find places. Landmarks, colors, where the sun rises and sets. Google maps (satellite view), local maps, tourist maps and intuitions. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, but always got a better chance asking the locals.
