I'm looking out at mountains, trees and for a change a blue sky :-)

I am looking out onto Hong Kong central skyline! I do have a BIG smile on my face looking at the view.

The Shimane (Japan) countryside.

The mountains mean plenty of snow in the winter :-) usually! Reply to this

I am at home in Germany. No office. I have a window and glass door that take up most of one of the living room walls. I can see our baby garden through it. Baby because it is only 12 meters square. There is some garden funiture out there and some kiddy toys. Through the garden bushes which are just starting to lose their leaves for Winter, I can see 100 Meters of grassy space and trees until the next appartment block with a main street not far to the left of it.

I have a small London street with terraced houses and a school payground aruond the corner. Not the most inspiring views from a window on Planet Earth (!) but the sun is shining in England today so that's something!! 😊 Reply to this

My parents commercial fish in Southeast Alaska and during the summers I work on their boat. So, when I am inside the boat cabin, I look out the window at the mountains and oceans.

The rest of the year I have been substitute teaching in Fairbanks, and depending on what school I am at I see different things out my windows--mainly a lawn covered in snow and children pressing their faces against the glass. Reply to this

Until recently in my career, my response would have been:

"Office window? I looked around and see other offices...but am still unable to locate this elusive 'window' to which you refer..."

But thankfully my new office building does indeed have windows. I still have to get up to see out of it - but when I do I see a desert canyon/valley under the blue skies of San Diego, California.

From my office there are 4 and 5 story buildings in various degrees of maintenance. One has recently been completely draped with a huge advertisement for Levi jeans. The building next to it seems to be vacant. The offices are in the new mall and next to a main tram depot, just off of old town Krakow. So, alot of coming and going. Reply to this

So, what is out your window Mike? 😊 Reply to this

My envy is based on the sad fact that I don't have a window. I do have some photos from San Sebastian, Paris and Aix en Provence that I can while away many productive hours remembering when I took them. Reply to this

I don't have any windows in my office but if I go across the hall I see the santa monica mountains covered in smog and a great view of the Hollywood sign. It's not that bad.
However, today is my last day at this job which means one day closer to traveling again but it's a little sooner than expected. Reply to this

A beach and the Libyan Sea, although neither seem to have cured the wanderlust. Reply to this

Thankfully, I have two sets of windows on my corner of the building. Being on the third floor, one looks over a busy and wide intersection surrounded by buildings of various modest heights. The other window commands a view of the Brisbane river, complete with boats ferrying commuters and tourists along its meandering length.

The view doesn't cure wanderlust, but it is a pleasant enough scene to admire when I don't wish to stare at my computer screen any longer. Reply to this
