Rising bright and early with the sun at 5am every morning means not only immersing ourselves in the ethereal light and colours of day break, but also being able to experience most destinations all by yourselves. It’s the ideal way to see a place for what it is rather than being distracted by how many people are there, how hot it is or how bad the traffic is. Still, I struggle to maintain a 5am wake-up call seven days a week. As I sluggishly attempted to wake up this morning, the refreshing sea breeze trickled in through the balcony doors and delicately danced its way over to my bed. Appreciative and finally awake, Luke and I set sail and made our way down to Pebble Beach at our resort to make the most of its pristine and empty state. Co-ordinating my outfit with the deck chairs was unintentional, of course.
