A Westminster Sunset

Anyone who knows me knows that my favourite thing in the entire world is a sunset or a sunrise. I am completely enamoured every. single. time. I mean you’re quite literally watching the world light itself on fire every day. You are witnessing the earth wake itself up or put itself to bed each night. The Sun is Mother Nature in its purest form. Humans have no ounce of control over it and it is a constant reminder that this earth does not need us. Each time I sit in silent awe, I am once again reminded of the duty we have to this earth to give it the respect and gratitude it deserves. I have made it my goal to see the sun set and the sun rise in as many places around the world that I can. 
If you are in London and do not get to see the sunset over Westminster I am telling you here that you are doing it wrong. Take the tube or walk from wherever you are staying and get off at the Westminster stop. Grab yourself a bottle of wine and some friends, if you’ve none of those (as I didn’t) grab yourself a pair of headphones and cross the bridge to the other side so you are facing Big Ben. You then want to be on the left side of the bridge. There are many places you can sit along the edge or on the stairs and sit. If you’re in London in the Summer time make sure you get there around 2110 and be prepared to stay until at least 2210. If you take music with you I recommend taking the headphones out at some point to feel the city around you. Feel the air, smell London, really know where you are and how you feel. It’s a brilliant experience. 

Here are some pictures from that night
