Sunrises & sunsets around the world

Thanks to Rebecca Goes Rendezvous and Chalk & Cheese Travels, I’ve got a new post idea. Both of these great blogs recently shared their top 10 favourite sunrise and sunset photos from around the world, so I was inspired to take a look back through my albums to see what my collection looks like. To be honest, I’m not a huge sunrise or sunset junkie, as I typically like to enjoy many long hours of sleep. However, I have managed to capture a few decent shots from my travels!

The header image is sunrise in Chiang Khong, Thailand โ€” our stop before we departed on a Mekong River slow boat toward Laos.
