View from a Plane

Air travel is becoming more and more common. While it’s still not overly cheap (at least not in Canada), it allows us to take a three hour flight instead of driving fourteen hours through boring fields (eastern Alberta, I’m looking at you). As you know from yesterday’s post, I’m in a long distance relationship- flights are a fairly common occurrence in my life! This post is all about the highlights of flying…

View From a Plane

Normally I try to get an aisle seat. I’m going to be honest, my bladder is way too small and I know there’s a good chance I might have to pee and I don’t want to have wander past people. Plus it’s just nice to have the feeling of more space. However, three of my flour flights this time around were window seats. It’s not as terrible as it sounds, because there was no one in the aisle seat for two of the three window flights. I decided to take the opportunity and share the view from the plane this time around- during the day, with clear shots of the Rocky Mountains? Yes, please!

View of Seattle

Cities typically how better at night from a plane, what with all of the lights and everything. However, it was lovely to see Seattle free from fog and rain during the daylight! It’s hard to tell when you are walking around the city centre just how big a place really is; turns out Seattle is pretty freaking huge! It’s also nice and reassuring to see some green space popping out.

This is my full can of Sprite. Yes, you read the right- a full can of Sprite. I’ll let that sit with you for a little while.

This is also me spread out over two seats, with my Vinyasa scarf serving as a blanket and uncramped legs that are revelling in the space all around me.

Plane selfie! Flying can be a fairly stressful experience. You might miss a connection, loose your luggage, get sick, not deal well with turbulence, or any number of issues. So, when you do have a beautiful view outside of your window, a full can of Sprite, or two seats to yourself, seize the moment and enjoy it! No matter how often I fly, I am a nervous flyer and don’t deal well with turbulence. So, I do the macarena in my head to celebrate a smooth ride! There’s always a positive to find 🙂

What is the best travel luck that you have had?

    These are some absolutely beautiful photos! I love being able to see loads as you fly! I’ve often flown into Heathrow airport over London, that is beautiful, both at day and night! Plus the views flying over Greenland to America are great too!

    My best travel luck was on one of my flights from Newcastle to London, where they had this big plane and there were only about 10 of us on it! I had the whole row to myself and they kept coming round with drinks and snacks! Usually you’d only get one in the hour flight, but that trip was great!

    Best travel luck was flying Seattle to Amsterdam on a red eye with my seven year old. We had a five seat row to ourselves. He got four of them to sleep on. Nothing beats a rested small child when you land.
