  1. I do have a hotel bucket list and I think most of them are on this list, like the ice hotel in Sweden ,the glass igloos in Finland and giraffe manor in Kenya. But really I would LOVE to stay at any of these. Have you been able to stay at any of them!?

    • Not yet! Still planning my trip but might stay at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore later this year.

  2. The Finland igloos are high on my list, but boy are they expensive! The ‘hotel’ pods in Peru are gorgeous too!
