A year ago, I flew to Merida, Yucatan in Mexico to visit Progresso. For this 7-day trip, I rented a car and visited Progresso and Merida. As I was driving around and seeing the different areas, I determined the area to be an awesome destination just to explore and see Mayan ruins, cenotes (fresh water caverns), and everything this place offers. After my week in the Yucatan, I started considering the different options I had from shipping my vehicle to driving it to the Yucatan. I came across a blog where a family from San Antonio did the same trip. I carefully read their story and made the decision to pursue this adventure.
The promise of sleepy beach towns, pristine and secluded beaches, geothermal features, and misty rainforests drew us to visit The Coromandel Peninsula (The Coro, for short) toward the end of our latest visit to New Zealand. The Coro is located on the North Island, an hour and a half drive or a ferry ride east across the Firth of Thames of Auckland, yet it is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the country’s largest city. With no agenda and a limited list of places we had to see, we kept our two days planned for the area open to exploring anything that caught our fancy.
Examining the night sky on a clear evening while camping far from light-polluted skies will captivate your inner sense of wonder. It is an incredible experience to sit in awe of the vastness of space. Capturing the endless array of stars has become an easier feat due to camera technology evolving rapidly. Between sensor design improvements and smarter built-in noise reduction software, cameras are performing at ISO settings of over 10K and producing usable results.
