Are passport Covers really necessary?

People ask this question a lot: Are passport Covers really necessary?Is anything really necessary? You are the master of your domain. You decide what's necessary. But I will tell you that Passport Holders saved my life... okay not exactly but they are a really great thing to have.  Plus now I can't imagine not having one.  At first I was skeptical.

Ice Hotel, Jukkasjärvi Sweden The first Ice Hotel that I know of is in near the arctic circle in the small village of Jukkasjärvi Sweden.  In the winter they construct rooms from Ice sculptures and you get to stay in a hotel room basically made entirely of ice.  It looks very exciting and evidently there's tons to do up there from snowmobiling to checking out the northern lights.   The rooms are made entirely of ice, as I mentioned before, which is exactly as it sounds... cold.  the temperature hovers around 17 to 25 degrees fahrenheit, well below freezing!  Which is good, considering...
