This is probably a bit self-indulgent, but I was really excited when I took my most recent flight out of Costa Rica. Sure, my baby was flying for the first time, but I also saw my house from the plane!
I don’t want to get too detailed about which house is ours, but it is there. The reason I’m keeping it “semi-secret” is because one time when we were on vacation in China our house got robbed, so I also avoid saying beforehand when we’re going to be out of town. Still, it’s pretty cool to see your own house from a plane, you have to admit. We often see planes flying over Berlín, the little town in the mountains where I live, even though it’s about 45 km from the airport. I guess it has something to do with flight paths. I’d actually even seen the area around Berlin and its towers (which are fairly well-known, fairly well-huge, and the way I can find the place quickly), but I’d not actually seen my own house.
Anyhow, you can also see that it is indeed an incredibly rural place where we live. When I say I live on a mountain in Central America, surrounded by coffee fields, I’m not kidding. In fact, our town isn’t really even a town, it’s more of a series of houses along a road. But oh well.
How about you–what’s the coolest thing you’ve seen from a plane? Here’s a bonus picture of some windmills that I saw right before our house:
