When it comes to aeroplanes I think the world can be divided into window lovers and aisle lovers. And no one loves the middle seats. If you wish to confirm this argument skip doing the web check in and see which seats you get on a full flight. All windows and aisles would be gone and all you will get is a middle seat! I am a firm window seat lover.
On a few occasions when I forgot to do the web-check in and got a middle or aisle seat, my misery knew no bounds! Middle seat is a bit more miserable than aisle seat for the obvious reasons. You have the freedom to move around if you wish when you get an aisle seat but to me that is a very poor consolation. You ask why? Well the pictures are my answer to you.
No aisle seat can offer me this view. I recently visited Goa and came back today. I was invited by the Goa Tourism Department to attend the Goa’s Coconut and Cashew Festival. I managed to get a window seat both the times. The views are the reason of my addiction to the window seat. The only person who manages to dislodge me from it is my daughter Chhavi.
I have been on aisle seats when the person occupying the window seat has been fast asleep through a blazing sunrise! Nothing can be more frustrating for a window lover! Thankfully my Goa trip doesn’t fall in that category. I could see the Zuari Bridge from air. The coastline looked so majestic from the air!
I find the best opportunity to click pictures is when the plane banks on your window side. It is an awesome feeling to see the sea and sky merge in the far distance. And when I think that someone else paid for ticket because I blog, I feel truly blessed.
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
