We arrived in Sevilla in the evening and upon seeing the city a bit as the night was falling, we knew we wanted to start exploring bright and early the next day so we got up before the dawn in Sevilla to see the city. Nick always loves getting up for a few sunrises while we travel, to capture the city in the quiet early morning hours and take in the gorgeous daybreak light. So we woke ourselves bright and early the next morning, I threw on leggings and a big scarf and we headed out of our lovely Corral Del Rey hotel. First we wandered the empty and totally peaceful windy cobblestone streets in our neighborhood, wandered a little farther to find a little plaza and a quiet church and finally made a loop back to our hotel to check out the rooftop right as the sun was rising. We climbed the narrow little stairs to get up to the top and watched as the dawn colors spilled across Sevilla’s sky. I was so tired but standing up there on that rooftop will be a moment I will always remember from our trip to Spain, a moment when you look around and can’t quite believe how fortunate you are to experience it. Those are the moments I live for, the moments that make you feel so small and yet so in sync with the world around you. Traveling brings many of those moments but sometimes, there are moments while standing on top of a rooftop in Sevilla, watching the sunrise alongside the person you love that just seem all beyond perfect.
