On the flight from Rome to London, I was lucky enough to get a window seat on the right (landward) side of the plane, behind the wing. It was a beautiful sunny day--even in England!--and the views were great. I suppose if you fly frequently you get used to it, but I always find flying over land exciting.

The Alps

Think what it must have been like to travel over these in a horse-drawn carriage ...

The Alps

... or on foot with elephants, like Hannibal!

They just go on ...

... and on ...
