Office View

Rocky Mountains from 28,000 feet

When working as an engineer I was given a nice fast computer, placed in an 8×8 cube and brought home stress over the projects handed to me. Now that I work as a flight attendant I have a fast aircraft, work in a long tube and don’t take my work home. Oh, and my little cube had no windows while the office views from 28,000 feet will blow your socks off!

  1. You can’t beat that view!

    • Well you did some travel this past year on some nice sailing vessels that probably had some pretty nice views, also.

  2. Personally, it’s the views from 0 feet while the plane sits on the tarmac waiting for clearance (as we all grow noticeably older) that I seem to remember. Flying ain’t nearly as fun as it used to be!

    Must be I’m one of those “glass half empty” kind of guys:)

    • Sitting in an airplane is not that enjoyable. In fact I am a lousey passenger, would rather be working the fight. Cartier-Bresson perferred to travel by car or train as he could then see the terrain change where flying was more like being beemed to another place.

  3. Interesting. I didn’t know that about Cartier-Bresson. So he and I have one thing in common, at least. People ask my wife and I why we only travel by car, why we avoid air travel like the plague (at least these days). And that’s exactly the reason – so we can see things “change” along the way.

  4. Monte, despite all of the hassles associated with air travel, views of the mountains or soaring above the clouds still make flying exciting for me.

  5. Spent way to much time in the air over the years, fly to work daily at times, fly to Dutch Harbor (I don’t recommend it)every other month on and on. Might be better if I was working on the flight.
    I’m with Paul on the travel on the ground thing now. In fact I do most of it by Motorcycle so you really see, smell and feel the country change.
