24 Hours of Sunsets

By | source: Mar 4th, 2014

If there is one thing I love more than looking at the stars at night in Texas, it’s watching the sunset. I’ve seen a lot of gorgeous sunsets in my life, but seeing it in the Hill Country is by far one of the greatest experiences ever. I can remember sitting in the back of a pickup truck with my high school friends, talking about anything and everything while watching the sunset. It’s hard to think about all the negative things going on in your life when you just stop and take a moment to appreciate the beauty of the setting sun.

For those of you who don’t know, GMT stands for Greenwich Mean Time and it is the basis of every world time zone. There’s even a pretty great website that lets you compare GMT with a destination closer to where you live. For those of you in Texas like me, you can figure out our time – which is mostly Central Standard Time (CST) – by subtracting six hours from the GMT. According to that same website, GMT has been around since 1884 and is measured from the Greenwich Meridian Line at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, England. (I bet you didn’t think I could use Greenwich that many times in one sentence.)

I haven’t been to many of the places on this list, but after seeing these spectacular pictures, my travel bucket list just got a whole lot longer. Maybe I’ll even find some nice stranger to watch the sunset with me. Who knows? [via]
