No Pain in the Ash for Us While Flying Over This Volcano
We've said it before so just in case you didn't hear it the first time, when flying to a new destination if you can snag a window seat, do it. Your family and friends will thank you when they're forced to flip through countless photos on your Facebook page.
Our recent trip to Singapore was no exception. More specifically, our Scoot flight offered more plane-window Kodak moments then our camera battery could take.
This particular flight takes us over the dead center of Australia and onto the vast volcanic archipelago of Indonesia.
As soon as one set of small islands would pass our viewfinder, our journey brought us to the next unique grouping of islands, all looking more and more tropical as we neared the equator.
The above photo was shot about half way through our flight. Since our in-flight entertainment didn't offer a live tracking of our flight path what did we do before the moving map? we are a bit unsure of the location. Our calculations have us flying over the island grouping known as West Nusa Tenggara with the volcano in question being named Rinjani.
After the tumultuous relationship airlines and travelers have with certain volcanoes, we are clearly happy that this photogenic mountain stayed dormant for our trip.
