Picture this: You step outside in the middle of the day but its pitch-black outside. You take a deep breath through your nose and the nostril hair freezes to ice. You exhale and more smoke comes out than when you had your bad vaping habits. The cold air starts getting to you, you feel it in your bones, in your spine and you shiver. You can barely move from the cold but yet you still want to stand out there and stare, there is something so breathtaking that your seeing, you can’t take your eyes away, you don’t want to go inside, despite the cold. Soon you won't feel the cold anymore, you don’t care how dark it is in the middle of the day, you’re too focused on staring at the sky. The sky has turned in to something magical tonight, something so magical it can only happen for a couple of weeks throughout the year. Experience the Northern light the real Scandinavian way. Here’s a list of great places to visit while seeking a rainbow sky!
