There’s nothing better in is world than a beautiful sunset. The hues of red, pink, orange and purple that illuminate the sky as the sun starts its descent and starts to fall down below the horizon. It is a moment to sit and stare, to contemplate the world and hold the person you love a little closer. It is one of my favourite things about travelling, because literally wherever you are, a great sunset will make the world look beautiful, even if it is just for a short half an hour. So instead of waffling away talking about the great things you can see and do when you travel, I thought I’d just share with you the most amazing sunsets I have ever recorded and tell you where you can find them.
