5 Wonders From Above the Sky | Why Window Seat Is Worth It

Who doesn’t like the view from a plane? Whenever flying, I like to have a window seat because it just brings me so much joy to see the wonders from above. I mean, there is a reason why every time I am travelling to somewhere new I’m looking for a tower or a place where I can see the city from above.

Why Wonders from Above?

I remember my first time flying. It was May 2009 and I had a flight from Budapest, Hungary to Oslo, Norway. Back then I was able to choose my seat at no extra charge even with a low-cost company. Hmmm, how time… flies. (pun intended!) Anyway, I managed to get my window seat and I was the happiest when the plane finally took off. Seeing Budapest was so interesting, but as soon as we approached Norway I got hooked. The view of the fjords, the sea and the land were simply incredible. Not only that but during the flight, I have seen a full circle rainbow. I didn’t even know that was a thing until then. I also didn’t know how later in life I will fall in love over and over again with seeing the sunset or the sunrise from the plane.

It is safe to say, ever since then I always tried to get a window seat when I take a plane. And a lot of time I managed so I have a tiny collection of wonders from above. I have actually started a Fb album with pictures only taken from the plane, and I am happy I did because since then I have lost quite a huge amount of content. Like my pictures from Norway.


I have never been to Greenland but I flew over it quite a few times. Luckily one time the clouds were picture-friendly and I was shown the magic land in a way I can’t even explain.

Iceland – domestic flight

I have only taken the plane twice within Iceland, but totally worth it. I mean, look at it! While I was taking these pictures I was also recording a video. So if you want to see that, check out the video of travelling by plane from Egilsstadir to Reykjavik.

Chile to Argentina – Andes Mountains

It was not my first time seeing mountains from a plane, but the Andes shocked me for real. How was that even possible? Stunning is not enough of a word to describe what I have experienced.


That was my first time on the African continent and I was very excited to see that side of the world so much. Everything was a wonder to me, and it all started with the view from the plane. I mean look at the sea.

New York City

If you really think I won’t mention NYC then you haven’t paid attention to my travels and my stories. This was my first time in New York City but these pictures were taken when I actually left.


Sometimes you don’t even need to see all the way down to have an interesting perspective over your flight.
