Travel, whether on business or leisure, is something my family and I do a lot of. I have traveled over 2M miles on one of the major US carriers and then there are the numerous flights on a large number of other airlines – United, Eva, Air China, China Air, Korean, Air India, Thai, Malaysia Airlines, Dragon Air, China Eastern, China Southern, Hainan Airlines, Shenzhen Airlines, SAS, Norwegian, … the list can continue a bit longer.
Even after all this, I am always amazed at the beautiful views one can get while on the plane – views of the airports, other aircraft, the sky…
So, I decided to put together some of those views in a series of photo postings…Here we go with the first
The Istanbul Topkapi Palace (otherwise known in Turkish as Topkapı Saray) is a large palace located in the old town of Istanbul and is currently a museum. The palace served as a main residence of the Ottoman Sultans until about 1856.

I have lived in Austin for almost 14 years (my family and I were out of the country for a couple of years in the middle of those years)….I think the sunsets of Austin are one of the memorable things about this great city. Take a look:
