A seat with a view.
“Journeys are the midwives of thought,” said Alain de Botton in The Art of Travel. “Few places are more conducive to internal conversations than a moving plane, ship or train.” Indeed, some of our favorite travel memories are of the moments in transit: the anticipation of touching down in a new airport, the bone-rattling foreign tuk-tuk rides, the changes in landscape as you traverse a country by train. “At the end of hours of train-dreaming, we may feel we have been returned to ourselves – that is, brought back into contact with emotions and ideas of importance to us,” Botton said. Let this photo collection of scenes from planes, trains, and automobiles take you on a mental journey, and allow your thoughts to roam free.
