Winter Vacation Spots

Who wants to spend their winter vacation trying to get sand out of their pants, getting sun burned and using a palm tree as a Christmas tree? Try one of these cool winter getaways, instead.

Winter Vacation - Sweden (Ice Hotel)

This hotel is built from scratch every year, which means brand new beds, sparkling clean walls and no tacky decor that your grandma would love. It's called the Ice Hotel for a reason - it's made completely out of ice. The Ice Hotel is on the shores of the Torne River in the old village of Jukkasjarvi, Sweden. 10,000 tons of crystal clear ice from the river and 30,000 tons of pure snow are used to build the Ice Hotel every year. There's even an Ice Chapel, an art gallery, a theater, and a bar. Each room is unique. You sleep in a cozy warm sleeping bag on top of a bed made from snow and ice, and covered with reindeer skins. In the morning you'll find hot lingonberry juice by your bed. What service!

Winter Vacation - Lapland, Finland (SnowCastle)

Cross the drawbridge and step into a winter wonderland. The SnowCastle in Kemi, Lapland has a courtyard full of famous fairytale characters. You'll also find these frozen figures in every cave and secret chamber. There's even the fierce Dragon Slide to watch over the throne. SnowCastle also has a SnowRestaurant, SnowHotel, SnowChapel and the CastleCourtyard. There are 15 rooms you can stay in and all of them are decorated with characters from the Northern Gulf of Bothia.

Winter Vacation - Quebec, Canada (Ice Hotel Quebec-Canada)

The Ice Hotel in Quebec, Canada has 16 foot high ceilings, walls covered in artwork and furniture (made from blocks of ice) to chill on. There's also an art gallery, a movie theater and a very popular ice bar where there's no need for ice cubes cuz the glasses are made of ice. It takes about 10,000 tons of snow, 350 tons of ice and five weeks to build this Ice Hotel. There's no need to sleep in long underwear - you have a warm sleeping bag to go on top of your bed of deer pelts. Each room is unique because different artists add their personal touch.

Winter Vacation - Greenland (Crystaline Igloo Hotel)

Greenland isn't a tropical island with green land. In fact, it's cold enough to have an igloo hotel. The Crystaline Igloo Hotel looks really cool when it gets dark. Candles light the way, and cast a romantic glow around the place. It'll be freezing cold outside but, wrapped up in your musk-ox furs, you'll look slightly odd but you'll be warm. You'll also have sleeping bags that can handle the cold. There are several ice sculptures inside and around the hotel. Most of them are lit up and made by local artists and igloo builders.

Winter Vacation - Manchuria, China (Habin Ice Latern and Sculpture Festival)

If you want to check out the most amazing ice sculptures in the world, head to the most northern part of China from January to March. The Habin Ice Latern and Sculpture Festival takes place in Manchuria, the coldest place in China, just across the border from Russian Siberia. The display of ice sculptures will leave your jaw hanging. That's why people pay to stand in the freezing cold and watch teams of sculptors carve 7-foot high blocks of snow into animals, mythical figures and other art. There are also castles, towers, the Statue of Liberty, the Great Wall of China, and even a huge Russian church made completely from ice. The best time to see it is after dark. Purple, pink, blue and green neon tubes glow inside these crystal works of art.

Prologue 0-2: Hello, Sister Despair   The corridor seemed to wind on and on as I walked; I'd passed so many classrooms that the tedious environment I found myself in felt circular. I'd seen no-one, heard no-one... it felt lonely. I felt lonely. Though I desperately wanted to call out to see if someone would answer me, I felt that no answer would come. Maybe... all of this was completely hopeless. However, that feeling of solitude was broken by the most grating, irritating, aggravatingly-sickly voice I'd ever heard. "Hello! Are you new, too?"   Well, it was better than nobody. As I turned to the source of the voice, a smallish girl with pale pink curls greeted me with a smile, giggling happily. Somehow... I felt I recognised her, in some way. She had a friendly air about her, so maybe I could trust her. "Yay!" she began, striking a cute pose, "Ruka found someone else, nya!" Ugh. She reminded me of those god-annoying anime characters who were a bubbly mess of energy. I couldn't just ignore her, despite how badly she grinded my gears. A patient smile forming on my face, I couldn't help but stammer out of nerves.   "S-so, who are you?" I asked flatly, "I'm Misaki Yami, if you really wanna know." Judging by her speech pattern, this girl was probably called 'Ruka', but it was  best to make sure; I didn't want to call her a name that she wasn't called. "Ahh! So cute, nya!" she continued cheerily, "I'm gonna call you Aki! A cute name for a cute girl, nya!" "You really don't have t-" I was promptly cut off by the girl again. She was really starting to irritate me now, but I couldn't blow a fuse because of her. "I'm sorry! I need to introduce myself, too!" the girl swiftly struck a cute pose. "I'm Ruka Arisugawa, but I might be better-known as Faris, nya."   RUKA ARISUGAWA SECONDARY INTERNET IDOL   Ah. So that's how I knew her... Ruka Arisugawa - better known as Faris Nekomimi - is pretty much inescapable online. Youtube videos, blogs, social media in general are overrun by the talented internet idol. I'm not really into that kinda thing, but from my love of anime, I guess they assumed I liked idols too. I don't. Well, I couldn't just be rude, even if she did seem to embody that irritating bubbly attitude I'd never grown to like. So, after a little more conversation (though it wasn't particularly interesting), Ruka and I began to make our way to the gymnasium; according to my acquaintance, she'd seen some others walking around and decided to take their path.    Soon enough, after what seemed like hours of walking in circles, we'd reached the door to the gymnasium- and as Ruka had said, there were others making their way inside. I cautiously pushed open the grey door, and inside the rather generic-looking gymnasium, stood around fourteen other people. They all looked pretty unique, but what was I expecting? These were former Ultimates... they definitely had that air about them. Ruka was quick to dash forward and start talking to people, and I began to settle on that idea, too. The people in the room had settled into two groups; I concluded on talking to the people in the first of those groups.   Well... you can't just say nothing, I told myself sharply, as I took my steps towards the first person in the group. Go ahead and introduce yourself to them.
