If you have ever stared outside of an aircraft window wondering just what you are seeing below you or what is below you, the Royal Geographical Society has teamed up with the Institute of British Geographers to come up with the Hidden Journeys Project. Specifically, the web portal contains 15 amazing flight paths from around the world that you can explore, interact with and add pictures to once you have flown or visited the destinations on the actual route.
In fact, the Hidden Journeys project is constantly growing thanks to contributions from both visitors and the Hidden Journeys Flickr group. These contributions include everything from paintings, pictures or illustrations to detailed descriptions of geographic or manmade features that will be visible from your passenger seat.
(Why wasn’t geography this beautiful when I was in school? All I can remember is tedious facts about the steel industry in Belgium and the difference between a church with a tower and a church with a spire as seen from an Ordnance Survey map.)
