Holiday Trace


To my delight Kylie Jaxxon has once again created a version of her wellknown and much loved The Trace. This time it is called Holiday Trace, and when I saw the announcement on Flickr that it would open soon, I was counting the days to go see it! Today it opened and it is without…

Lost Island – Bastet’s Paradise


Often I use the Destination Guide to see what is new in SL, and today one of the highlights on my dashboard caught enough attention to TP over and have a look: The Lost Island. Now, I also saw a comment added in the DG’s entry (one can share, comment, like and all that via…

[Norderney] – A smile is the beginning of Peace


After I saw several gorgeous images on Flickr, taken on [Norderney], I decided to tp over and explore this new, to me, destination. It is owned by Jacky McPherson and she did a wonderful job in landscaping and decorating! What a peaceful, lovely place this is! Whether you enjoy walking around, sitting on the small…

Sunny Fields


Sunny Fields is, besides the mainstore of =TBM= where you can purchase planes and monorails,  an airport and open to all with rezzing enabled so you can try out your aircraft and feel all free like a bird. And stuff. I have a thing for airports, maybe because I have had so many flights the…

Kavala Bay


This morning, while hiding in my office from the heat (yups, I am a real basement dweller) outside I was travelling around in SL and ended up in a desert of all places. One would have thought I was more in the mood for Iceland or something Arctic but hey…it’s Second Life! Kavala Bay, is…

Mondays are srs bsns


Today I was in Amsterdam, the centre, for work. Not my favourite city, but oh well..sometimes one has no choice! It inspired me though, to go take a look in the Amsterdam in Second Life, which exists since 2004! It’s a nice replica and I have to admit it was kind of funny to see…

Mount Rushmore


In 1999 I made a wonderful road trip in the USA, from Colorado via Utah to Montana and I-don’t-know-how-many states. I have fond memories of Yellowstone NP, what an amazing place. Also, since we were driving along and it was not a fully planned trip, at some point decided it would be cool to see…

Second Life Railroad – Do the locomotion


Last night Ratt and I tried to spar some, but were obviously both not in the right mood. We needed to get out a bit, so I showed him my new home on the mainland and when we went for a walk on the Linden Road we discovered Spangle Station, really nearby my house! Spangle…

Magnolioideae Palace – Anarchy Island


The magnificent Magnolioideae Palace (what’s in a name, this is not easy  to type!) on Anarchy Island is absolutely one of the most amazing palaces I have seen in Second Life! On the landing point, in front of the huge palace, cars and motorcycles are parked – as if there is a fancy ball going…

Farstar New Earth: Parallel Worlds


The Parallel Worlds on Farstar New Earth (G) are simply: breathtaking! On landing point (you enter the sim on ground level) you need to take the teleporter to the Parallel Worlds, to find yourself high in the sky in a surreal build of spheres, where you find the most absurd and magical environments. Fantasy creatures…

Valhal


Thanks to my travels in Second Life, I am (almost) never bored in quiet weekends as this! Most of my SL friends are offline in the weekends, to spend time in this thing called Real Life. Me? I don’t have much going on in there, so I click  the teleport-button and fly around in cyberspace…

Solidea Folies & Salimar


I am not really sure if the creators/builders that made Salimar intended to give it that mediterranean feel it gave me, but if they did: very well done! It reminded me a bit of a little town in the south of France, Provence du Var, called Fayence where I have spent some wonderful summer holidays…
