    begin in the coastal town

    The adventure begins in the coastal town of Lahad Datu. From there, the 80 km drive over mostly bumpy roads to the interior introduces the area.


    I wonder if I can replace "begins in" with "originates in" here. Thanks.

    Re: begin in the coastal town

    It's starts there, it doesn't originate there. Originate; e.g., your country of origin, where you are from. The adverture doesn't originate there, it starts from there.
