We all hallucinate to live in a world where day doesn’t just come to an end.
Well, some people are quite fortunate enough to live in places where the sun never sets. These places enjoy 24 hours bright sunlight throughout the day and night as well. The phenomenon when the sun never sets is known as “The Midnight Sun”. This phenomenon is genuine with few places around the country where you can enjoy the bright light of the sun but cannot enjoy the soothing wind blowing during night hours.
If you are a day-person, plan to visit these places.
