The Ice Hotel

Well with all this snow, imagine this, the Number 1 Vacation Spot in Sweden:

The Ice Hotel, a hotel made of ice in which you "dress in warm thermal underwear, put on a hat" and then lie down on your sculpted ice bed. "You sleep in a thermal sleeping bag on a special bed built of snow and ice, on reindeer skins."

Who has been there? Not I, nor will I anytime soon. I have more than enough snow, ice, and cold here to satisfy me!

I am grateful for my warm house and warm cozy bed.

A friend of mine went there a couple of years ago and she loved it! Said it was very "cool" :) And no, they didn't get cold and slept very well on the reindeer skin. I love the look of the ice hotel and would probably give it a try if it was closer.

Amazing, Kerstin! It "sounds" cool to me...however, I'm not sure if I would go even if you paid me per shows how we are all so different...what gives us pleasure and how we experience things.

It is good to find out though from someone who has been there that it is made comfortable for guests!

Warmth and joy,
