The World From Above is a series on The Trusted Traveller showcasing some of the worlds best views from above.
In each post, with the help of some of our most well travelled friends, I’ll be taking you above the world one region at a time. From Europe, Asia, North and South America, Africa, and Oceania, nothing will be missed.
Why the World From Above?
There are a few ways to orientate yourself when you arrive in a new place. You can grab a good map and take a walk, hire a guide to show you around or climb aboard a tour bus. All are great ways to get your bearings depending on your personal travel preferences.
But there is one more way which is by far my favourite way to get the lay of the land and take in the bigger picture. It’s to climb high above a city, town, region or area and get that view from above.
If your in a city it might be from its tallest building, or from the top of nearby higher ground. In a small town you might find yourself climbing hundreds of steps up a tower to see how the town is laid out and its surrounding countryside. Or if your exploring our great outdoors you could be tramping up mountains looking out over untouched wilderness as far as the eye can see.
Because some regions have so many incredible views from above I’ve split them into multiple posts so as not to overload you with too much awesomeness at once!
