Peace Valley Pet Cemetery

It sometimes appear to me that in SL there is nothing you can think of, that does not exist! On my constant search for interesting places in SL, I came across this one: a cemetery for animals, be it SL or RL ones. For prices in the region of 100-250L$ you can rent a parcel and have a memorial plate or similar with a picture of your pet on it. I must admit, this is not a place I would visit frequently, however, the good thing with Second Life is, that it has something…

Home of the Super Heroes

Attracted by a live event announcement, I went to place that would rather be rated as male preserved perhaps, the name is «Aftermath IV – Metropolis National». The place is themed around life and works of super heroes, which becomes obvious immediately when arriving by train right in front of the “Wayne Enterprises” tower. The city and its surrounding surely give that gloomy Gotham City feeling, and I wasn’t quite sure, whether walking through the streets would be safer because of all the expected super heroes or less safe because of the need of their…

Journey Through Time – Don’t Feed the Prehistoric Dinosaurs

  We travel so much in Second Life, why not travel through time for a change. My little nephew would absolutely love it, if he had the chance to do what I could do in SL, jump into a wormhole and visit the dinosaurs alive. That’s exactly what «Prehistorica: The Dawn Kingdoms» offers. Once you arrive you have the chance to get yourself a dino avatar if you like. It’s a shop-like marketplace with many different scary animal avatars to choose from. I for myself decided to stay what I was: a…

Lost in Baycity

Don’t ask me how I got there, but I found myself stranded in a rather deserted city, in the middle of the night. I could have teleported away of course, but something fascinated me at first glance. One couldn’t call this sim a beautiful sim, in a romantic sense, but it has definitely its own charm and a lot of it. It would be very suitable for those who search for a good role play area. It has an harbor area  with its obdurate charm of an industrial working area, a unique cinema,…

Venice – The Most Romantic City of My Life

Yes, for me Venice is the most romantic city in the world. I have travelled the world due to my business, and I have seen a lot of it from Moscow and Leningrad to New York, Chicago, San Francisco and lots of other cities of the USA. I’ve been to Rome, Paris, London, Florence, Pisa, Prag, Barcelona, Madrid, Cairo, Marakesh, Istanbul, Hongkong, Singapore, Jerusalem, Amman, Beirut, Copenhavn, Stockholm, Helsinki, Dublin, Marseille, Nice, Cannes … and many, many more, but to me, when it comes to this “unbelievingly beautiful” feeling, then…

The Memorial of the Battle of Alamo

The beauty with Second Life is that we can visit historical places without leaving the sofa at home. One of those places I visited during a pause with hot chocolate and dry mango stripes was Fort Alamo. I must admit, I googled the “Battle of Alamo” in wikipedia. It is strange sometimes, we know the song, we know the term, but we often don’t know the details. For Americans perhaps a well known fact, is the term „Texian Revolution“, while it is most probably completely unknown to many Europeans (like…

Venta Silurum – Romantic Hideout

It’s not that I was looking for a romantic location in  Second Life, it’s more like I felt romantic the moment I reached the island. This sim is full of places where we feel the need of a camera to capture the moment, the mood, the atmosphere, hoping we can preserve all that in a picture. But experience in life tells us, that mood and atmosphere cannot be conserved. Just the memory gives us a glimpse back: the feeling of the feeling that we had at a certain place at…

New Brighton

What a lovely place! – Free scooters rezzing at the landing point let you and your friends explore this beautiful Island. And there’s a lot to explore! You have of course to take a walk along the city promenade near the pier. And you should in any case take plenty pictures of you on the pier. Play with the daylights, it has its own charme in any of them. And when you’re tired from walking, then that’s just the right moment to relax at the beach.     http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/New%20Brighton/204/122/34   Was…

Mont Saint Michel

I have to admit it, it is one of my favorite places when I’m in the mood for walking: the Mont Saint Michel. And there are good reasons for it. The most obvious is of course the monastery, sitting majestically on the top of the hill, overviewing the village, the island and offering a splendid view on the ocean. It is one of the places which are a must see in SL!   But don’t miss to have a look at the Jules Verne Museum as well. Or, if you feel more…

Recently at the Cinema

Have you ever taken somebody out to the cinema in SL? If not, grab your partner and have a look at Beau Belle Village. And while you are there, you might as well take a walk and enjoy dinner at the Belle’s Restaurant, enjoying the beautiful landscape. It will for sure be a night to remember.   Habt Ihr schon einmal mit einem Freund oder Freundin ein Kino in SL besucht? Wenn nicht, hier ist ein wirklich schöner Ort dafür: Beau Belle Village. Und während Ihr da seid könnte auch ein…
