Whenever I fly, I always request a window seat. I love the view through an aeroplane window – because it means I´m going somewhere!
You can often see spectacular views of the world – views which you simply cannot see from the ground and sometimes of countries that you will never set foot in.
Even if there is nothing spectacular to see, just looking at the changing cloud patterns or mountain tops can be fascinating.
With tight security rules and ever busier airports continuing to change air travel, rediscovering the romance of the window seat may be the most practical way to make flying more enjoyable. Why not give it a try next time you fly?
So, Señores Pasajeros (Ladies and Gentlemen) please ensure your seat-belt is securely fastened, your tray table is stowed and your seat-back is in the upright position, and join me in enjoying a smooth approach into Málaga (Costa del Sol) airport, courtesy of Ryanair.
Once I can see the coast, I know I’m almost home!
There’s the runway!
Often the course is out to sea (towards North Africa), before swinging back inland to head to Malaga airport from the south.
Back over the coast, heading north this time.
Passing directly over Plaza Mayor shopping complex – nearly down now!
Do you enjoy flying or do you just tolerate it to get from A to B? Which countries have you just flown over that you would wish to actually visit?
