Daylightland

In Iceland in the summer, the sun never sets. It's like an alternate twilight dimension. But winter is worse

  1. Iceland has some kind of night; in Murmansk you won't see a sunset for few weeks at all :-) As well as sunrise in the opposite time of the year... I've read that people tend to have vacation at that time, if they can.

    1. Makes sense. I'd definitely get the hell out of dodge...

  2. I was worried about this before our 3-week trip a couple of years ago, but I actually slept great! They have really effective blackout blinds!

    1. Mostly for tourist though. Most Icelanders can sleep in light so long as it isn't too bright.

  3. I've never understood the obsession of having it completely dark in order to be able to sleep. It seems to apply to night's sleep only, though --- the same people can perfectly well nap in the daylight on park benches, public transportation, or at their office desk.

  4. It was really nice for it to be light enough to be able to walk around beautiful Keflavík at 3am during an overnight layover, though!

    1. Very true. It makes midnight strolls very pleasant, if surreal.
