Another thing I'm a real sucker for? Yeah, you guessed it—SUNSETS! I'm not a morning person at all, so waking up for sunrises is nigh-impossible for me to do, but I will stay up as late as can be and catch a stunning sunset any day of the week. This is the sun setting over Gozo, Malta's sister island. I captured it with my iPhone (yes, seriously!) from the top of one of those hop-on-hop-off buses that I used as my main transportation around Gozo (since I don't drive). This was from the last bus heading back to the ferry terminal, and I'm honestly still astonished at how beautiful it was watching the sun set as the wind whipped my hair around. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❓ Do you prefer sunsets or sunrises?
