Around the World in 15 Shockingly Mediocre Airplane Photographs: Window Photos From a RTW Trip

From January-March of 2014 I completed a RTW trip through 13 different countries, beginning an ending the RTW trip on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Over the course of the journey there were 18 flights, 15 of which are documented below in the instances when I had a window seat. I’ve always been the traveler who has his nose glued to the window for the duration of take off and landing, and these are the best photos my iPhone could snap while the flight attendants weren’t looking…

Ahhh the ever unimpressive window shot. If only an iPhone photo could look as epic as the real view, right?

Wow! Never did I imagine that there are people who have the same guilty pleasure as I do. LOL. Whenever I ride airplanes, I make it to the point that I got to be sitting next to the cabin window. Thanks for sharing this! I can really relate. Haha
