Flying to Chicago from Dublin has to have been one of the most amazing flights I've ever taken. From some reason that still eludes me, the plane's path took us over Greenland, and the clear skies allowed us the most beautiful, breathtaking sights. The extremely nice pilot made an announcement just as we reached the eastern coast, and luckily I had a window seat!
