Midnight sun! Have you heard or read about it before here? Me? I first heard of the phrase from Gracie of Gracie's Network, a Filipina who is now working and living in the land of the midnight sun Norway. When I first read her tweet (or blog-post, am not sure) about the midnight sun, it got me curious so I immediately consulted my ever reliable and know-it-all friend Google and here's what I found:
Midnight sun is a natural phenomenon wherein some countries (Norway included) north of the Arctic Circle experience daylight all throughout the 24-hour period. That is, the sun never descends beneath the horizon and that one can see it even at midnight, especially during summer when the weather is fair. (source: wikipedia)
Amazing, isn't it? I tried to visualize myself in that situation actually, to be in a place where the sun is up all 24 hours of the day, to witness and experience the midnight sun. And just by thinking about it, I was in awe. What more if I would experience it personally!? Just thinking out loud here, someone might hear it and allow it to happen. *wink* Hahaha, I'm just day-dreaming, as another blogger always say, Libre Lang Mangarap! ;)
Okay, enough of this day-dreaming, I just want to thank the two bloggers who let me see, through photos and posts, the beauty of the land of the midnight sun. Thank you Gracie of Gracie's Network and ate Joy of Joy's Notepad. A big thanks too, to ate Joy for sending me a greeting card; it's nice knowing you and your escapades in Norway too. You and Gracie have shown me (us) a place way different from ours here in the Philippines; a place where there is white christmas, a place where the sun never sets, a place that has become your home away from home. Thanks to you both, keep on blogging and inspiring us with your posts.
