The Northern Lights, Polar Nights and Midnight Sun

I have always been fascinated by this natural phenomenon. I remember those times when I used to day dream seeing it, having a glass of Veuve Clicquot and some chocolate covered strawberries chatting with people and just having the ultimate chillout. (Yes I know it sounds so Cosmopolitan, hehe) and I was thinking, when will I get to see this?

They say the best place to see the Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights is in the little town of Tromso in Norway during months of September to April. I've been making some research about it and found out that there are Northern Lights cruises that one can chose from! Exciting isn't it?







Not only that, I am much mesmerized with two more Scandanavian natural phenomenon. The Midninght Sun and the Polar Nights.

Photo taken during midnight in Scandinavia. Sun remains visible even at midnight.


Polar Night occurs when the night lasts for 24 hours.

This is such a dream destination for me. Hopefully I'd get to spend my 30th birthday there. *crossing my fingers*
