There's a song that says pilots are in love with the sky and it's nice to hear from one of them that it's true: Mark Vanhoenacker is one such pilot, he's just written a piece reminding us of the pleasures of being a passenger in the window seat.
World Reviewer was recently approached by Steve Chambers, who's planning to trek the Great Wall of China, hoping to raise £6,000 for the Institute of Cancer Research UK.
