This should have been the most obvious starting point for my blog being a Londoner myself. I was truly impressed with my visit to virtual London. There was so much I wanted to share, but have been reserved, so that you can explore the Mainland London for yourself.
One of the first things that hits you is the sheer number of visitors to these regions. It is so vibrant and active..much like RL London. There is always a collection of people at the landing point, just hanging out, casually chatting. As soon as you land, you get an overwhelming feeling of being welcome.
The sim is bright and well spaced out but still manages fit in a myriad of buildings, attractions and shops. Some of the buildings might even be familiar to you….
The regions are particularly new-comer friendly, you will find an area where there are tutorials to help new residents get started with some basics as well as a spot where anyone that is ‘homeless’ can set Mainland London as their home!
Regular events are held at Mainland London. Why not take a peek at their official blog to see which events are coming up soon.
I was at a loss for where to visit next…there is such a thing as being spoilt for choice, when Cristal suggested one of her favourite locations in Second Life. As I landed, it was clear why she was so enamoured with the place. Introducing Feast, a whole region of beautiful settings.
I present you with just a few of the areas that I visited. What struck me, was that each area was beautiful in its own right, yet very different from each other.
I sat at the dark mysterious pond, contemplating…before wandering over to the breath-taking field of flowers nearby.
Can you think of a more beautiful place to be trapped?
Today, I visited a place that I haven’t visited for a while. A representation of the real life city, Venice. I have never been to Venice, but I really got a good sense of how it might look and feel. Venice is situated on the Prada region in Second Life.There are many nooks and crannies to explore on this amazing sim. From the gondolas on the waterways, to the markets and the shopping areas. There is truly something for everyone here..and a long time can be spent exploring, or just relaxing with friends.
The Rialto bridge is a fine replica. I was blown away when I ‘googled it’ to compare it’s likeness…If you haven’t seen it yourself, I urge you take a peek. The likeness is incredibly close.
The sights are far too numerous for me to capture them all, take a stroll around Venice…I wonder if you will fall in love with it like I did!
Hello, my name is Coco….Coco Firegrave….and I am addicted to Second Life!
Ok..maybe it isn’t as dramatic as that..but it made a great opening line.
I am loving spending time ambling through the regions of Second Life, amazed at this resident-created world that is home to such a huge array of talent. If you have never been, why not join me?
I am enjoying dabbling with Second life photography, and thought a blog would be a nice way to ‘log and keep’ my Second Life memories.
Feel free to grab onto my coat tails and enjoy the ride.
Love, Coco x
