Sometimes everything just comes together perfectly in one moment. That’s how this sunset on the Pacific was. I was relaxing on the deck of the house we rented in Carmel, California, sitting in a hot tub with my sister-in-law, building common ground through unhurried conversation. No agenda. The sunset became more beautiful with every glance; the birds flew up and down and around, looking for a place to rest for the night. It all came together in one perfect moment, not unlike every other moment in life except that we usually don’t stop to appreciate them. That’s what I love about traveling–the chance to step away from the usual rush of life and appreciate what is.
What perfect moments do you remember? What struck you about them?
