Inspired by views taken in from the window seat of many a transatlantic flight, Andrew Pearce took the plunge and organised a pair of spectacular trips to Greenland. He provides a personal account of his visits to the staggeringly beautiful country.
For many passengers, a transatlantic flight is something to be endured. Forced to spend many hours cooped up in an aeroplane, they pass the time between meal and drink services dozing or casually watching whichever movie happens to be showing on the small seat-back screens. Very few, however, are aware of the spectacular views that are potentially unfolding behind the inevitably closed window blinds.
