Jetting off into the sky to someplace new is such a wonderful thing. You may joke around with your friends, saying you’re going to ditch your current lifestyle for one with more suitcases and less leg room. But you’d honestly love to switch things up and spend a majority of your time in the clouds. The places you see and the people you meet along the way always change how you see the world, in the most positive and inspiring ways possible. These airplane captions try to capture the feeling you get when you slide into a window seat, and finally say “yes” to your wanderlust.

In the past year or so, you haven’t been able to say “yes” to adventures nearly as much as you’d like to. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now says it’s safe for fully vaccinated people to travel domestically, which means you can jet-set to national parks, skyscraper-filled cities, and lush beaches that have piled up on your bucket list. Just be aware: You’ll still need to wear a mask on public transportation including trains, subways, and airplanes, as well as any local locations that require it once you touch down. You’ll be so thrilled to travel again that you likely won’t even notice it or think twice about putting it on to keep others around you safe.

Instead, you’ll be standing in security lines at the airport and waiting for your suitcase to arrive at baggage claim with a massive smile on your face. And when you get on the plane, you’ll be taking picture after picture of the view from your seat. For those pics, grab one of these airport captions or airplane quotes that’ll take your wanderlust (and feed) to new heights.
