Here is a link to a short video I came across today. It’s filmed by some guys, which I have no idea who are, that took a trip back to the Lofoten Islands this summer. If you’re too lazy to click the link? well you’ll be the one missing out! (I wanted to embed it, but wordpress technology isn’t quite that far yet and will only embed from a few well-known sites)
I never thought I would say this as I’ve wanted to just get away from there for so long to see other parts of the world, but there is just something about Lofoten. Something in addition to my family that will drag me back there again and again to visit. I think that no matter how far away I go or for how long, I’ll always be proud to tell people that “This is where I grew up”. This is where I ran around with my brothers and childhood friends, playing, whether it was sunny, raining or snowing. It’s where I did 11 years of school that each felt like they took forever. It’s where I used to be able to look up to the sky on a clear night and see the northern lights dance during the winter and where I could see the sun reflect in the mountains even after midnight, as it wouldn’t set during the summer.
The midnight sun can’t be seen from the inner-side of the islands(due to the mountains), but it’s only about half an hour drive to the outer-side where one can watch the sun almost hit the water before it starts rising again. These pictures were taken this summer.
