Game of Thrones fans have some time to kill before Daenerys’s dragons rain fire down on some White Walkers. If you’re looking for a place to twiddle your thumbs, consider a stay at the SnowVillage, a resort built of ice and snow that draws inspiration from HBO’s hit show. Developed in cooperation with HBO Nordic, the hotel in Finland features a throne of swords, a hall of faces, and a giant White Walker with glowing blue eyes, all crafted from fire and ice. The space includes a hotel, restaurant, bar, and chapel, which means you can get married there if your obsession with the show has reached “I’m kinda worried about him” levels. The Lapland Hotels SnowVillage will be open for a few more months, so make your reservation now. 

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
