  1. I had this experience when I went to Iceland a few years ago. The sun was just setting at 11 pm!

    It is very interesting for a person who is visiting. When I had similar experience, I liked it. Since whenever you wake up in the morning, you will feel, you have a lot of time to do many things.

    That is so fascinating to me because I didn’t realize that it gets light and dark at such consistent times where you are… I’m with Minneapolis and a wide shift in times of light and dark happens throughout the year. In the summer it’s still light out well past 9, and then in the winter I go to school in the dark and drive home in the dark if I leave after 4ish. So it would be weird to me to have it be dark so early, and so consistently, throughout the year. So interesting to think on perspective — the timing in Minneapolis was odd to you, but for me the timing in India is the odd one. 🙂 I want to go to the Land of the Midnight Sun up in the Nordic countries to see an even more drastic light situation, that would be fascinating indeed!

    Oh, I can so relate to this! I spent five weeks in Scandinavia and Iceland earlier this year, and it amazed me to wake up at 1 am in Norway, and not need to turn on any lights. It was nice to come home to winter in NZ, and find that it was dark at night. However, we are a little like Minneapolis, in that when it is summer, it is still light until about 9.30-10 pm. So I find it disconcerting to go to other countries, and find it dark at 7 pm, yet still be hot outside.

    These all experiences of different people tell one thing that our planet is so amazing and mysterious.
    May be it is all because of geographical changes , science but someone is behind all this and that is our Nature , A Supreme Power ….

    I can so relate to this Parul, come summer Basel is the same! sunlight till 10 pm and it feels like such a long day!

  8. Dipika says:

    8 pm and that sunny??? Oh God I honestly had no idea about Sun being so adamant. Today I can again say this with a feeling of gratitude – I am blessed to be born in India 😁

  9. Parul, this post reminded me of our sojourn to Istanbul. We had the same experience there. Even at 8 pm, it was sunny and bright! We were fooled by the sight but our body clock made us aware of the reality!
    Great photo! And thanks for a great trip down the memory lane.

    Hehehe it’s the same here in Sydney during summers. Sun sets at 8:30pm … It’s really hard to convince myself to have dinner when it’s still so bright 😀

  11. Era says:

    I have experienced this first hand and I totally agree it can be very disorienting. Hope you have a great stay in the USA 🙂

  12. I observed this in Europe. It used to be difficult to sleep or even have dinner because of that. I don’t think I ever got used to that.

    8 p.m.?!! Seems unbelievable! My my! People there must have a tough time falling asleep at night, what with all that light outside! 😛

    Here in Phoenix sun goes down at around 8 pm during peak summer time. It was new to me at first. When we were in England, the sun never seemed to take rest. At 10 it was still bright and for us, it was difficult to sleep. At 4 in the morning, the sky was already filled with the brightest sun rays. It was really difficult to get adjusted. And in winter 4 pm it was dark and some days even 8 am looked like midnight. Madness!

    When I traveled to Europe last year, I was fascinated that there was sunlight till about 9 pm. The benefit was that expound stay out and sightsee till late hours. And the place where we were staying had very thick blinds on the windows which helped if you wanted to catch some sleep early.

    I had a friend travelling in Scandinavia once who sent a photo of themselves at 1 am in full daylight…..it can take some getting used to i know.

  17. Shantala says:

    Haha yeah, here in Virginia, it is almost as bright as this at 9 PM too. It is disorienting at first, but you get used to it.
    Oh and you would get to experience the exact opposite during the Winters, when it is pitch dark at 4PM. 😀

    It brings me back to the long summer days when we were in the U.K, Parul. Watching the sunset at 10 pm in the night was a sight that I most remember. It never really got dark even at midnight …was just like late evenings/twilight and then after a while, the sun would be up again. We all struggled to sleep with so much light outside!

  19. Ramya says:

    That’s what surprised me too when i first came to US. Having grown up in India and watching sun set by 6, i couldn’t beleive sun setting after 8pm here. Iam also amazed to watch sun set before 5pm on winters.The Nature is amazing.

    I find the change in the hours of daylight throughout the year in the Chicago area one of the nice things about the changing seasons although the changing temperature is the most noticeable.

  21. Obsessivemom says:

    Very very difficult. But fascinating too. I’d love to be roaming the streets at 9 in the night in bright daylight.
