Where I grew up and where I live now are very different places. The flight is only an hour and a few minutes, although the drive is about 14 hours + ferry. As you fly you get to see some very different views in such a short time frame:
Islands and ocean.
Islands and ocean and clouds.
Amazing mountains, I could have taken hundreds of pictures of all the different mountains.
And, here. Flat, with the mountains off in the west. At least in this photo it looks flat and green, instead of flat and brown.
