Up In The Sky

Trav­el­ing from the East to the West meant fol­low­ing the sun… and not sleep­ing much because we shared the plane with two minor league soc­cer teams on their way to Toronto (one day, I’ll tell you about in-flight food fights… I’m still too trau­ma­tized to speak!). I was seated by the win­dow and snapped a few pic­tures along the way.

Tak­ing off in Paris… a lot of thick clouds — I rarely get to see them that close, much less fly through them!

A few hours later, fly­ing over… Green­land! See­ing ice­bergs was just amaz­ing. Keep in mind we were at least 10 000 feet above ground level, so the “small” chunks of ice were prob­a­bly actu­ally huge! The sea was so blue as well… just amazing.

Fly­ing over Canada… see­ing land for the first time in about seven hours (long hours — did I men­tion the food fight?). This was prob­a­bly Prince Edward Island or New­found Land. Looks pretty cold, doesn’t it?

Over North­ern Que­bec, and then land­ing in Mon­tréal…

The flight was tir­ing but pretty unique oth­er­wise. It was my first time tak­ing pic­tures from above… and I loved it!

Oh by the way… I have just update to Word­Press 2.5 yes­ter­day night and I’m telling you, Word­Press users, do it as soon as you can! The new ver­sion is just perfect.

I usu­ally upgrade using Fan­tas­tico (lazy me) but couldn’t wait to test WP 2.5, so I upgraded man­u­ally, fol­low­ing the instruc­tions. Funny thing, first time of my life I actu­ally under­stand Word­Press instruc­tions! Any­way, every­thing was com­pleted in about 30 min­utes and all my plu­g­ins worked just fine, except one called “Pop­u­lar­ity Con­test” — but I found a fix.

I didn’t like the new admin inter­face much but I found a new plu­gin, Flu­ency 1.1, which is more user-friendly.

My favorite new Word­Press 2.5 fea­tures?

  • The one-click plu­g­ins upgrade
  • Wid­get management
  • The new fresh feeling!

Don’t wait any longer… down­load Word­Press 2.5! (damn, I don’t even get paid for say­ing that!)

  1. @Keshi — Thanks girl!

    @Froggywoogie — First time I saw ice up there too ;-)

    Word­Press is truly awe­some, but only worth it if you blog a lot in my opin­ion. It does take a while to under­stand how it works but then it’s per­fect. It’s not you… I feel so dumb when I first try to under­stand geek-speak!

    @Art — Thank you!

    @durano lawayan — It does looks peace­ful come to think of it… The earth is an awe­some place. Just humans kind of suck sometimes!

    @princesse ecos­saise — I guess I’m used to it! I’m the oppo­site: when I fly short dis­tance (pretty rare…), like Ottawa — Toronto, I feel stu­pid… like take off and hop, we’re here!

    @Ghosty — First time I actu­ally took pic­tures from up there and it really cap­tured the beauty of the sky. I was glad I took these pics!

    @kyh — Amaz­ing isn’t it!

    @Linguist-in-Waiting — I also like that the land­scape looks so dif­fer­ent… fields for exam­ple around Paris are so weird, no plan­ning what­so­ever… but once you get to N. Amer­ica, line are straight, huge free­way etc. Funny.

    @Max Coutinho — Oh you’re so lucky girl, it’s like –17C with the wind today! No kid­ding. Barely above 0C for the rest of the week… hope­fully sum­mer is com­ing soon. Sum­mer is nice here, very hot actu­ally — believe it or not!

    @johnada — Two lame movies: Cin­derella (seri­ously!) and August Rush. Didn’t buy the head­set… goes with­out say­ing ;-) Ah free booze… not on that cheap flight!

  2. Yes it sure looks freez­ing cold out there and what a fan­tas­tic sight Zhu.

  3. lovely pho­tos… im usu­ally unlucky when it comes to this; seems my win­dow is always really foggy or what­ever, so i can never take good pix! :(

  4. Hi! This pic’s are really nice.Thanks for sharing.Wishing you all the best. :)

  5. I did a test install of WP 2.5 and I didn’t like the new admin inter­face . :neutral:
    Flu­ency 1.1 seems great!
    i’ll try it too.
