One afternoon I spoke to a fellow Villanova alum and swapped travel stories over a few steins of German pilsner at a local beer garden. He wanted to learn about my career change from management consultant to travel photographer and blogger. He did. But I learned how travel impacted his life too. Not to mention how he also shared an affinity for the sunset. He described one sunset moment he remembered from the island of Borneo in the South Pacific. I asked him if he wanted to share his special moment here, he agreed:
On the second to last day of my twenty-one day trip through Borneo, a few of us were hanging on a beach outside my hotel in the Malaysian city of Kota Kinabalu. We shared a few Bali Hai’s (local Indonesian beer) and reminisced about the incredible 3 week trek through the country we just completed. With all of us set to travel back home, the last hours were bittersweet.
