Hello 2017! Here are the internet happenings that caught our attention this week.

I'm putting Finland on my list of places to travel to in 2017, and picking up this beautifully illustrated indie magazine on Nordic living to keep me occupied until I get there. – Daniel

Only in Japan, folks: Tiny food, and the joy of cooking in miniature. – Berit, editor

Put on some headphones to hear the recordings of this audio ecologist and "silence activist" — soundscapes of prairies, forests, seas, jungles around the world. – Jeralyn, editorial director

I'd never want to sleep at the Ice Hotel in Sweden, but I enjoyed watching an Italian architect carve a suite from ten tons of ice, down to details like 200 ice books. – Pavia, CEO

Take two: A photographer is documenting endangered cinemas around the world. – Daniel

Already thinking about my next winter getaway — a woodsy cabin escape with lots of snow sounds kind of nice. – Berit
