Throughout the pandemic, we'll keep publishing news to help you navigate the state of travel today (like whether travel insurance covers the coronavirus), as well as stories about places for you to put on your bucket list once it's safe to start going more far-flung.

The small town of San Martin de los Andes sits on the shores of Lago Lácar in northern Patagonia. The lake stretches more than 20 miles and is a popular spot for overnight kayaking missions by local Argentines and tourists alike. 

To get this shot, I followed one of these expeditions with a drone. In a region famous for wind, it's always nice to be able to fly my drone.
