Bucket List #3: ICEHOTEL, Jukkasjärvi, Sweden

Have you seen Frozen? I might not have hated it (read: I really liked it). You remember that scene where Elsa is singing and building her ice castle? Well, that’s exactly what ICEHOTEL, Jukkasjärvi looks like:

The décor is art made of ice, and snow (although there are warm rooms for wimps people who’re interested) and the interiors are actually sculpted by ice artists. Crazy, eh? Anyway, apart from the obvious attraction of sleeping in an ice suite, I’m also quite keen on testing the acoustics in said ice castle hotel… Let it gooooooooo, let it gooooooo… Just kidding (read: I have never been more serious about anything in my life!)
