I think flying is really overrated. I mean, how can you see the best of the scenery towering above you or rolling in waves of green beside and below you if you're in a plane. Okay, I get the fact that you can see the patchwork below you (if its not blocked by the clouds), but you miss the chance to say you've been to places like Aruba, Eureka, Lebanon ... and without having to cross an ocean.
By the way, what would you say is in that tower there? It looks questionable to me. ;)
