After showing you all about our DIY wedding last week, today’s post is back to our honeymoon in Colombia.
After a day of wandering around in the most charming city of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, there was no better way to see the city change from day to night than to watch the sunset over the Caribbean sea.
There is something really amazing about watching the sun slowly dip down and watch the sky react with it’s flurry of colours. We watched the sunset on three days of our honeymoon. It set early at 5.5opm, and it was beautiful to see how each sunset was different.
Sunset One. The one where the sun dipped into the houses.
We watched this sunset from the terrace of one of the hotels we stayed at. Even the birds wanted to watch as the burning ball of fire slowly dipped into the houses, and was suddenly gone.
Sunset Two. The one where the sky turned orange.
For the second sunset we got to the beach just in time to see the whole sky turn a bright shade of orange. Just before the sun sunk into the ocean it became hazy as it was blocked by clouds, but it wasn’t any less beautiful!
Sunset Three. The one that lit up the whole sky.
This was my favourite sunset and we saw it on the last night of our honeymoon. Again, we went to watch it from the beach but this time we got there slightly earlier, and it was worth it because the colours were some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen; the contrast of the blue sky with wispy clouds and the yellow of the sun was a real winner! This was made even more stunning when a boat passed by just as the sun went. Just when we thought we saw the best of the sunset, we realised the best was yet to come as the whole sky turned the most beautiful colour as we walked back into the old city. It was the perfect way to end our ten days in Cartagena!
Next Friday I’ll be showing you Cartagena at night, which is one of the most atmospheric places to be!
