It’s safe to say I am NOT a morning person. Just ask anyone that has had to deal with me any time before 8am. And I’m not a coffee person either. I hear people can deal with people after they’ve had their coffee, I don’t have a fix haha. The best thing is to not talk to me until after 9am. I honestly don’t know how I survived all those mornings in school all the way to High School. University was nice, classes started at 10am!
When I travel is when I get up early the most, and often mind it way less. For example, getting up early to catch a flight is hard, but it’s also exciting. And getting up around sunrise in India (specifically Meherabad) is very peaceful. Meherabad is the only place in the world where I actually wake up between 5 and 6 am every day and not mind it at all.
I’ve captured a few photos of mornings across my travels. Enjoy!
Morning stretch in India.
We were invited to attend this Buddhist temple service in the morning one time.
When I’m in Mexico City I wake up to views like this.
Morning in Seattle, WA. Getting fuel for a fun day at the Museum of Flight.
This was another time I did not mind waking up early… to volunteer all day for 4 days for the Full Frame Documentary Festival in Durham, NC. Did it three years in a row, and it’s still one of my favourite experiences ever. (That’s me in the middle btw)
Another time I don’t mind waking up early… skiing in Whistler! LOVE.
Spoiled. Breakfast in bed when I visit my hometown (Mexico City).
Sunrise in Portland, OR. Do you know how I got to be awake during sunrise? Cause I was heading to the airport.
This was waking up in Mt. Hood, Oregon (at the Timberline Lodge). View from the window.
