My girlfriend and I were planning a travel to some exotic place, we could not decide between Hawaii and Seychelles. Then a friend of ours suggested that we might go to Alaska! I immediately grasped the idea, but my girlfriend was not that thrilled. It took me some convincing but she finally agreed to go. But I have heard that in some periods of year there are 24 hours of darkness in Alaska? Is it a real darkness?

Well, it is quite simple. Areas above the Arctic Circle during winter are in the dark. Places like Anchorage, Fair banks, Juneau, they all have several hours of light in the winter. Well, I guess this is just another interesting thing to witness in Alaska. Beside that, you will have so much more to see and experience there. If you can, take a trip to see the whales, polar bears, the wildlife of Alaska. That left the biggest impression on me.
