Travel Guide (Siteseeing/Exploring)



I like to dress up when I explore :)

Here are all the entries on interesting places in SL: Gardens, Real World, Role-Playing, and Things to See

The Role-Playing places listed here generally welcome visitors, as long as you are respectful. I try to point out any restrictions in my entry (such as no furries or mermaids :( ). Dont be shy about going to these places, as they are a wonderful (and usually most creative parts) of SL.

Some of the "Things to See" places may also have role-playing, but that is not their main focus.

Please let me know if there is something you would like me to add or take out. My only criteria is that it is a...um "nice" place :)

Marnie
aka Grace Abilene on SL

SLNatalia said...

Marnie, I hope you enjoy all of these great places in SL! :) There really are some nice places out there.

And let me know if you come across a cool place :)

Have fun!

Alyse Perenti said...

I haven't been there yet myself, but SL Insider had a very interesting video about the NOAA sim.

Can ride a weather balloon, fly into a hurricane, or see what happens to a glacier from global warming.

SLNatalia said...

Alyse, NOAA sounds cool! Thank you so much. Im going to go check it out :) So what do weather girls wear? :P

Torley said...

What a great compilation, Natalia! You are a champion explorer!

Here's a suggestion for you in the roleplay category: Midian City.

Cheerio!

SLNatalia said...

Torley! OMG a Linden was here!!! Im really really honored!! :) No really, Im am!!!

Thank you so much for coming by :) I heard about Midian City when I went to City of Lost Angel's. Frankly, Im a bit afraid to go there :P Maybe Ill sneak in really late on a weeknight...

Torley said...

I'm just meeee! :) Hehe but happy you are honored, Natalia. To build on what I mentioned earlier, I think you have a *fantastic* blog, that you are an AWESOME explorer, and it's certainly unique how you keep track of # of days lived in Second Life.

I've also been taking this list of "cool places to visit" and recommending it to fellow Lindens; you've set a good example and more Residents should have lists like it, sectioned into categories!

I'm also hopeful you'll make more Video Tutorials, because that's yet another area which is far more scarce than abundant at present.

Keep being yourself and having fun!

SLNatalia said...

Torley, I really appreciate your stopping by :) I really admire all your work and your energy!

I will try to do some more videos, but its hard for me to get my voice synced up with the video! Im pretty bad at talking and doing things at the same time (too nervous :P) Im hope it gets easier with practice...

Hi Natalia, I'd love you to come visit my lands, that sprawl in bits and pieces over three sims, in Omurice, Bbang, and Gimchi. Over a sim's worth, in all, with lovely informal and formal gardens, forest streams, waterfalls, rockpool swimming hole, lovers maze, balinese pavilion, pagan stone circle, trompe l'ouiel ocean wall and beach stream, formal dance pavilion with gondola ride canal, free wedding gazebo, open air jazz lounge, mahayanan buddhist temple, tantric meditation temple, garden plant shop, furniture shop, texture shop, jewellery shop, etc. At present, I only have a slurl for my jewellery shop in the sky, which is still getting up and running, but you can use the teleporters to get to other places, or look up landmarks in my profile picks and classifieds. Thank you for providing your lovely blog! Blessings, Liliana Bethune

If you have time. Your Travel Guide needs updated. Bliss Basin for Ex. doesn't exist anymore

Natalia Zelmanov said...

Dear Anonymous, thank you for letting me know. Im so sad...Bliss Basin was a seriously nice mermaid hangout :(

Hi Natalia, Another great sim is Da Vinci Gardens on Kalepa is just one of those places you really should visit. Once you have been, you always will return. This sim is packet full of adventure, romance, amazing creations and a lot of fun - like; play piano with a loved one, if you don’t want to look at the stars from a tower with great views let a falcon carry you to a midlevel castle in the sky, have a picnic in the Alps and try to catch your own fish, help turtles scratching their eggs out and see them hatching, go through a volcano and fly away on a dragon, visit a Egyptian pyramid and have a great adventure, fly a rocket to mars and discover a alien world ending with a dream slide, explore the Sunken Theatre of Atlantis and see some beautiful mermaids visiting the gardens. And just as you think you have seen it all you discover jet another part you don’t know. My favourite is the wonderful fireworks with music, you can start yourself.
Greeting ...
