Let’s face it, the view from a plane window can be spectacular. After taking all those planes while on Study Abroad you must have seen some beautiful sunsets, sunrises, glittering river beds and mountain tops.  Share the view with your classic plane wing shot.

11. Pushing the Tower of Pisa around, Italy

While you’re still in Italy, like thousands of other visitors before you, try to straighten up the leaning tower of Pisa.  Or practice your karate kicks and try to knock it all the way over.  Just make sure you get a good photo of your vandalism.
