Morning Around The World

sunrise portland or

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!

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)

  1. Love the experiences you capture here. What a beautiful collection of moments as fleeting as the sunrise!


  2. I like the cat stretching


  3. I tried a few things to make it better. Not hard enough or long enough, but definitely didn’t succeed either. Nigh owls unite!


  4. The cat ❤ ❤ ❤


  5. I’m a morning person – it’s when I get the most done, but I don’t like it to be too early. I wish I could get up earlier and see the sunrise more often – it’s such beautiful light for photography. Love the cat picture.


    1. You are so right. Morning light is amazing for photography. But so is late afternoon light, so I’d rather stay up for that one haha. Thanks for stopping by Alison!

  6. Such a lovely collection, as always! I especially love the cat stretch 🙂 I am a morning person as I feel that’s my most productive time, although that doesn’t mean by 6am alarm during the week is welcomed, haha!


    1. Everyone loves the cat! Haha. 6 am alarm, no thanks!

  7. I hate mornings but love my coffee. That being said, I don’t mind so much early wake-ups when hiking or traveling. And yes, something about India that makes early wake-ups there worth getting up for.

    Nice post!


    1. I’ve yet to wake up early for a hike. I’m sure it would be beautiful with that early light.


  8. Your photos are lovely 🙂
