In-flight Entertainment: Topography

Contrary to popular belief, a private plane ride isn’t as glamorous as a Casablanca movie. As I’ve learned from my first Cessna flight, it’s hard work.

But the view is incredible. You will never see such beautiful cloud formations, sunsets and topographical sights if you’re riding commercial.

One of the Philippines’ 7,107 islands. Unfortunately, I forgot which one. I snapped this photo as soon as we entered Cebu’s zone.
