But this post is not about the diamonds in the sky. It is just a view from the high up in a plane. It was the early morning Delhi-Ahmadabad flight.
I took up my first flight in my late twenties! Compare it with my daughter who took it at two years! By now she has started taking my window seat as well. My nephews who are much younger than me know how much I enjoy sitting on the window and they leave it for me! But not my daughter, not yet.
This was on my flight from Delhi to Ahmadabad. The day break was much more breathtaking but try as I might, I could not capture it. The lights of the plane would reflect in the window and spoil the picture completely. It was only later when it became brighter I stood a chance. I am seriously thinking of buying a point and shoot as they are much more handy in flights than bulky SLRs!
The water body appeared quite close to Ahmadabad. I wonder what it is. As a rule, I hate getting up early but if it is an early morning flight, I don’t mind. All I need is a window seat to keep me happy and occupied.

I was thinking about my South Africa trip today, I actually think about it often. And what a wonderful trip it was! I had severe withdrawal symptoms till I went and trekked in Nepal. So I thought I have to post a few pictures from the South Africa Trip again. I hope I will go back there once again! It is one of the most amazing places I have ever visited.
Flying from Johannesburg to Mumbai
I loved the experience of flying with South African Airways. There are airlines with better entertainment systems but the crew at South African Airways is quite good. I had black tea at night and the lady remembered my selection at breakfast too! I like such personal touches. Another one laughed with delight when I asked for Amarula for drink. While going to South Africa I had no clue about the existence of Amarula but it was the drink of my choice while coming back. Se, what can happen in just one trip!
Amarula tastes a little like Bailey’s. It is the best thing to have on a cold evening. It will warm you up within no time! And I had enough movies me to last for the entire flight with them as well. My experience in the skies was wonderful!
As the Dusk Sets in!
I am crazy about window seats and wing shots. And it was only after it became dark that my camera went in. I do watch a movie along with taking my pictures. And I do not like dirty plane windows as they mess up with the wing shots! You can see from the picture that these windows were reasonably clean. I had a great time by the window and with the movies on my flight from Johannesburg to Mumbai.

I took pictures like crazy from my aircraft window while the plane was approaching Srinagar Airport. It was a beautiful approach to the airport.

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!
