Macca talks sunsets in the Philippines. We woke up to this every day for 8 weeks…
Towards the end of our travels we stopped in Auckland, New Zealand and lived there for just over 2months. Our home between May and July 2012 was this little studio apartment right in the heart of Auckland’s CBD. Right on top of the 18th floor, overlooking the harbour we woke up to the most amazing sunrises every day for those 8 weeks.
Settling in pretty quickly and having a routine again after 9 months of sleeping in a different bed every few days and a different country every few weeks we were in bed and asleep way before 10pm each day and wide awake and ready to rock just before sunrise, which allowed us to watch these stunning spectacles before we got on with our days.
It was totally different each day. Sometimes fiery and blazing, another time a bit hazy and full of pastel yellows and pinks and oranges. I must say it was that time in Auckland that turned me around. A life long (well, until then) night owl that never ever got out of bed before 10am during weekends. I fell in love with how long my days were and how amazingly energised and rested I felt all the time having this new routine and habits.
Apart from the Thai Islands, these were for sure some of the most amazing sunrises I’ve ever seen.
Till next week
