13 ways of loving the midnight light

When summer comes the ice melts. Out of the two powers that rule our destination – light and dark – the season of light is of course the liveliest one. Everything grows, new life is born, the birds sing around the clock. The season with the midnight light is around 100 days long. You play golf in the middle of the night, you take a swim when you feel like it and those who have never experienced the midnight light before wonder how they'll ever manage to sleep. But then you make your mind up not to worry about sleep and decide it's time for further adventures. Even more summer.
