Views from a Plane Window (the “Back to Spain” edition). October 2, 2020
Regular readers know how much I love plane views. I think the greatest thing about flying are the views over the earth. Very few things get me as excited.
This post also marks our return to Spain on a long term Visa (that photo up top was taken just this morning). I’ll be writing a lot about that in the next little while. Flying back gave me the inspiration for this post, because flying signifies new adventure, new beginnings, and also travel inspiration. With all that’s happened in the last few years – and with few people having the opportunity to fly – I figured this would be a good time to give people a bit of travel inspiration. Because this time will eventually pass and people will be able to look forward to travel again.
I usually ask other bloggers to submit their photos to these “Views from a Plane Window” posts. This one I did differently – the photos you’ll find below are from our Pinterest page “Views from a plane window” and include the best of various photos shared on the page. I had several criteria for the ones I chose (beauty and variety of scenery/climates) but the main criteria was travel inspiration.
I hope the photos below make you long to get back on a plane.

oh my god! I already have been longing to get back on a plane! But wow these are so spectacular!
Love the view out of the window of an aeroplane. I really need to take more photographs through them, though. I deliberately select (where I can) a row towards the rear of the aircraft (as I don’t have the money to pay for a row in front of the wing), just so I can get a decent view. Looking forward to hopping back on a plane in March.
Great to know someone else who loves plane views!
