    Especially On Road Trips

    I love traveling, including road trips. But I would much rather be in the passenger seat than driving, cause I love looking out the window. Even if there's not really much to look at, I'm always looking out the window. I like it when we go through big cities, like Orlando or...

    I Love It.

    It makes me feel relaxed especially when the surroundings are mostly green. I feel so serene and stress-free. Sometimes I roll down the window if the air feels cool to the skin or if it is pollution-free.

    Always Searching

    My eyes are always seeking out adventure, seeking out wonderful things. Vibrant colors, fires, excitement. You never know what you'll see when you look out the window on a short/long car ride.

    I'm Like a Puppy With the Wind In Her Face

    I love looking out the window when I am a passenger (cos I don't drive, I am always the passenger yay). I love checking out other people, wondering what it would feel like being in that car instead of this one or just enjoying the wind on my face. If I...

    Window Viewing

    I do this all the time and find myself thinking about profound things. Or I'll daydream about my future and travels that I want to take. I also love it when it's sunny out and the windows are down and I can feel the breeze in my hair and I feel like there is something to live for...

    Window Gazing Is Amazing

    Sitting in the car, looking out the window as the sounds of r&b or jazz fill my head with beauty.  I soak in the visual art of the ghetto.  Homeless people are pushing carts, houses are dilapidated, vacant lots for miles..... How can you not be grateful for...

    Tip From My Dogs

    I used to always wonder why my dogs loved to put their heads out the window when they would ride in the car.  Then one day while my hubby was driving I decided to see just what the draw was. Well, yes, the wind whipping through my hair was nice.  Yet, going 60 mph it...

    Low Hanging Clouds

    I just LOVE it when there are a couple of low-hanging puffs of clouds with a bunch of high-altitude ones.  If you're looking through the window on the highway, you can really get a sense of depth perception with the atmosphere.  It's always such a beautiful thing if the...

    And While I Am...

    Hah, so it's not safe, but I'm pretty dang good at it! I will be driving for a while and hit a bump and then realize I don't remember driving for the last 30 minutes. Hahah I guess I just get caught up with the view and my own thoughts. Haha.

    Life Passing By

     Taking long trips is always better for me in the passenger side because I love to see areas as I pass it. Granted it would be nicer to get to explore the area and not just pass it by but instead I imagine what all those places are like and see how beautiful they are in that...

    A Metaphor of Life

    I have discovered some of the most important things about myself and life while looking out the window of a car. It's where I can do some of my best thinking because it's relaxing, you don't have to focus on anything except the streets winding by, and you can listen to...

    In Areas of No Traffic

      When we're going out of town to shop, and we get in those areas where there's ONLY trees, then sure, i love to do it. It actually relaxes me and lets me go to lala land . But once we're in the city or the town where other cars are present-nope-i gotta keep my eyes on the...

    Sightseeing and Pondering Reflections

    And Sometimes When I Am Driving, Too. Shh.. Don't Tell Anyone!

    Yes it is true. I have lived in the same city my entire life, and still get lost sometimes. My friends and family are baffled at how, when I started driving, I didn't know how to get from one main street to another. This is due in part to my family having moved around a lot...

    I've Always Loved Being The Passenger.....

    I Do This When I'm Driving Too

    Especially down certain roads and you can't help but look at the view. Surprised I haven't crashed yet to be honest, but sometimes, you just need to take it what's around you

    Taking In The World...

    Driving past places and taking in surroundings. Whether it be somewhere I am familiar with or not there is always that sense of awe when I just observe the world that at that moment in time I am not a part of. Watching strangers go about their lives that don't even know that I am...

    Would Rather Watch

    I'd rather be the one sitting in the passenger seat. I like watching as the scenery goes by. When you're driving you have to focus so much harder and don't get to appreciate everything else as much. So yes. I quite enjoy watching things go by outside my window. :)
