There is nothing more peaceful than watching the sunset away from your everyday life in a beautiful place. These are three moments in time from my travels I’ll never forget.
1. Luang Prabang, Laos
I overslept the first morning I was in Luang Prabang and missed the sunrise but my friends told me it was worth the view so we decided to go back at sunset. We lost track of time exploring in the afternoon and ended up having to run up the few hundred stairs of Phu Si Hill to make it just in time. Well worth the sore muscles the next day.
2. Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
This sunset in Zimbabwe and experiencing Halong Bay, Vietnam rival in the most peaceful travel moments I’ve ever had, it must be something about floating on the water. This sunset (joined by a few hippos!) was the perfect ending to a several week trip traveling through Zimbabwe.
3. Rome, Italy
After wandering through the fancy shopping district of Rome I made my way down to Piazza del Popolo and climbed the stairs up to the lookout point in Villa Borghese Park. The colors across Rome all the way to the Vatican City are unlike any I have ever seen.
