Getting a window seat in any kind of a vehicle is a big win. You don't have to spend your time in a long journey talking to people. You can just look out the window and watch the world moving by, and the sights outside are often pretty awesome. The experience gets even better if you are thousands of feet in the air. There's nothing as good as bird's eye view of the beautiful planet we live on.
Here are some photos that people took when they were lucky enough to get a window seat. With beautifully lit-up cities below and amazing views of the sky, and the clouds nearby, these cities would make you want to get on a plane right away.
