Although flying is not my preferred mode of travel, it comes before buses but after trains, ships and cars, one thing I do like about it is the opportunity to see the world from above. When I flew home from Adelaide in October I used my tablet to take some photos.
Observation towers and Observation Wheels (just mega Ferris Wheels really) are great for looking down at things too.
We don’t have any towers in Hobart but as it is a low-rise city you can still find places to look down at things.
Or you can just climb a hill.
