Photo of the Week: Balloons

IMG_1093Bagan, Myanmar

Sunrise in Bagan is one of the most magical moments. Each morning we would set the alarm and roll out of bed when it was still dark out.  We would put on our clothes while half asleep while questioning ourselves why we were up at that ungodly hour.  Then we hopped on our bikes and headed out into the unknown.  Our mission was to find a small temple with a terrace where we could go up and watch the sunrise.

It was still dark out when we finally made it to the top.  We sat there patiently waiting for the sun to rise and the hot air balloons to make their way over the horizon. At the crack of dawn, a sliver of light shined through and you could finally see glimpses of this magical landscape.  In the morning a thick layer of fog also blankets the area creating this dreamy effect. Even with the 4 am wake up call, it was worth the effort every time.

Every week, I’ll share a photo with you from my adventures around the world and at home.  Most of my photos have little or no post processing.  If you would like to see more, please click the ‘Follow’ button.
