I have seen a lot of beautiful sunsets, but only a few sunrises. One of the most beautiful I have witnessed was in the Borobudur Temple in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
The #tripofwonders organized by the Ministry of Tourism Indonesia gave us the same glowing experience. My closest friends know how much I hate waking up early and not getting (my) 8 hours of sleep. Truth be told, I hate anything that involves waking up early. This was the first time I woke up early to catch the sunrise. I usually slept when the sun rises. I know friends who would wake up for sunrise to take #ootd. Not me.
By the time we got to the top, the sky was casting shades of blue and orange. The shape of the mountain makes a beautiful background to the scene unfolding in my eyes. I was torn between capturing photos, having my photo taken and just living the moment. I heard the sound of call for prayer. It reminded me that I was missing my worship service that Sunday morning.
Borobudur Temple makes a good prenup location 😉
