Luckily, for those so inclined, similarly ephemeral lodging exists today in both Europe and North America in the form of ice hotels. I'm sure I'll never be able to convince any of my sun-loving friends or family to take a long weekend break in one of these glorious structures (temperatures inside the hotels range from about 23 to 28 degrees Fahrenheit at all times) but at some point I am going to have to give it a whirl.
the beauty above is the ice hotel of Quebec, but there are similarly gorgeous examples in both Sweden and in the Finnish Lapland.
I'm ready to sleep on and under some reindeer pelts...who's coming with?...
