After a 1am wake up and a long walk up to “King Kong” view point in Mount Bromo, East Java, I found myself standing amongst a sea of other tourists. With appearance and a variety of cultural norms, naturally setting us apart from one another, I found it so fascinating that though all these people were from such different corners of the world, we were all brought together to this exact spot, at this exact time, for the exact same reason.
To watch the sun, rise.
It just got me thinking how sick is it that no matter where you are in the world, no matter who you are or what you believe in, when you bring yourself back to the simplicities of life, there is no barrier or “differences” that unnaturally divide us. Without even knowing one thing about one another, we knew we shared a fascination and mesmerisation of the sun rising and setting.
The sun is universal, laughter is universal, a smile… Universal. No language barrier can stop us from connecting on the one thing we all share, this freaking beautiful world we live in.
Please scroll on and enjoy the first of our travel photo series… “There’s just something about sunrise” We have attempted to capture the mesmerising Indonesian sun rising and setting in all its glory! (not that photos ever give it justice!)
Isn’t it funny that the sun rises and sets EVERY DAY, yet it never seises to amaze?
We hope you have enjoyed our first post in our up and coming travel photo series! As all you travellers out there will know, sometimes experiences are better expressed through an image, rather than endless explanations. (As they say, a picture is worth 1000 words! ) We have created the photo series to give you guys a simpler insight to our experiences as well as a brief glimpse into our deeper thoughts along the way!
