The Central Coast from Above — October 17, 2016

I have lived in the central coast my entire life. I semi-grew up with a guy that is now a helicopter pilot. On Monday, October 17th 2016 we decided to go for a helicopter ride around town. We departed from Watsonville Regional Airport and flew to Salinas and back along the coast. Total flight time was about an hour and 10 minutes and I had a great time. We occasionally flew at a very low of about 100ft. I took my Sony A7R ii with a Zeiss Batis 25mm. Here are the shots of today with that gear.

Driving the Icelandic Ring Road

This year I wanted to take a trip where most people don’t go for their first solo-trip. Before leaving, many people asked: why Iceland? Well, to put it simply: it’s just different than most countries. Not only is the country gorgeous throughout the Golden Circle but it has many features that satisfy my geeky personality like fast 3G data in practically the entire country. The result of having such a connected society results in things like a cashless society, which I really appreciated. I didn’t need cash once, I was skeptical initially and my parents thought the idea of not taking any cash was hugely irresponsible. My American Express Starwood Preferred Guest was accepted everywhere, with a few exceptions. Here are my 14 days in Iceland.
