I must be a visual person as I have had window seats forward/rear of the wings for decades. Zeus could not fly, but here we mortals can. Magic that we take for granted? To each their own. If it is cloudy I love to read, but if the ground is visible or the clouds stupendous my eyes study what is there out that window. Having also studied maps since I was a kid I usually know about where the plane is, too, which enriches the mix.
