Photo of the day: Leaving on a jet plane

2013-10-11 14:31
There's just something about the view from an airplane window - no matter how well-travelled you are and if you've boarded a million and one flights, it never gets old.

Today's photo of the day by Instagram user alexandrachampion manages to capture the essence of the magic of 'leaving on a jet plane' and awakens a very wistful sort of wanderlust.
