Magnetic hill, Moncton
So, what is so special about a small town in Canada that has people actually turning it into a tourist destination? Well, the answer is the magnetic hill or the gravity hill which causes any vehicle to drive down backward minus any power and ignition. No one could have imagined that a path that was constructed in 19th century would have something so unknown that it will take nearly a century to come into attention that at a certain point in the road if there is no acceleration then any vehicle would automatically roll down. Today, tourists in Moncton pay a fee to actually have this experience.
You have heard that in Norway the sun doesn’t set for six months, well, it’s true and a trip down to the town Longyearbyen is the best place to witness and experience this. Located in the Arctic sea, Longyearbyen is the largest place in Svalbard in Norway, and is quoted to be an important administration center. Established in the year 1906, the town from April to August doesn’t see the setting sun. It is no less than a wonder about how the people staying there manage it all with plenty of sunlight and a day which never ends into night. It is quite fascinating and interesting to spend a time in a place where there is no night, stars or moon.
