Attempt 1

Random for me means neutral. So I need to pick something that has nothing to do with me and cannot be manipulated by me. So I decided to take a picture of the building in front of my balcony.

Every balcony will be seen as a box and all the Then I just rotate it 180 degree.

Then I went to the closest vending machine. The vending machine happens to have five stories which match the grid. I decided to buy the drinks in the position of the unshaded box. I started from left.

Below display the corresponding position of the unshaded box in the vending machine.

2 X Coke
3 X Mountain Everest water
1 X Solo Lemon soda
1 X Coconut water
1 X Waterfords Lime mineral water

Then I looked at their barcode. Since all barcode is a 13-digit number and starts from 9, I take away all the first digit 9. Then I sorted all the number from big to small and then I used the sum of first 6 number minus the sum of last six numbers.

Then I put those numbers in the order of the corresponding drink bottle from left to right and bottom to top. Below is the 16-digit number I got.

Then I split it into half and try to use it as a coordinate.27.351927 35.352919
I tried to type it into the Google map and it led me to a place in the Red Sea near the coastline of Duba.

Below the location of this coordinate.
