Rusty, by Cica Ghost

Visit Rusty here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Kymor/128/128/25

"Rusty"; A fun place to visit this Sunday. Cica has created another little gem for us to explore filled with rusty geary almost steampunky industrial type builds you can play in, pose in, dance in and ride in. As always the set windlight is great. Be sure to walk the skywalks and get your free boxing gloves to enjoy a match with friends. The build is filled with fun creatures to look at and interact with. This build just opened Sunday Nov. 4th, so you should have time to visit yet. "Sunday clears away the rust of the whole week. - Joseph Addison"  Have fun I took pics as usual:

Mad World, MadPea and a Great Video, The Drax Files: World Makers [Episode 47: Mad World]



Visit Mad World here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/MadPea%20Base/128/128/32

Mad Pea continues to offer some great games, explores, fantastic builds, and prizes. Draxtor does a great job documenting some of this and interviewing Kiana Writer.  Both well worth further exploring.

I visited Mad World, and as the video says, there is a lot to see and do in Mad World.  I took a few pics as usual and won't say so much even though there is SO much I love, because the video explains some of it very well and you should really just visit and see for yourself! I will mention there are multiple escape rooms, rides, a kitty litter game and so so much more in this huge well designed area.

The Upside Down, in Stranger Things Style, in Second Life

Visit The Upside Down here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Last%20Rites/128/128/26

Elysion created The Upside Down, in Stranger Things style, by Syn Beresford.  If you are familiar with the show, Stranger Things, I think you will love this sim. The original Elysion is also a great place to explore and enjoy some impressive events too.  I've blogged them before if you want to search to the right for more info.  Anyway, I just wanted to get this sim on the blog as I enjoy the show and this sim is a cool build.

Halloween Town, by Laura Liberty

Time for Halloween Town here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Townies/128/128/20
Spoiler Alert for old timers... new areas this year!
Halloween Town upper level is similar to prior years with Laura's interesting buildings lining the path down to the haunted house.  There are freebies and fun things to do and play with along the way and the buildings house items for sale including child and adult costumes, gifts, creepy or cute decorations and party supplies, some really cool masks and accessories and other stuff.  Once in the haunted house be sure to accept the hud then don't mess with it, just turn up your sound.  Click on things in the haunted house and enjoy. It's one of the longest most impressive interactive haunted houses in SL that is based on Halloween movies theme. There is a really cool new area/ride part of the haunted house I won't write about here or post pics of, so as not to spoil the new fun for avatars who might have visited in the past.  One thing I will mention is to be sure to collect your free image provided from the sim at the end of your ride in the new area, and then continue on. There are a few other new surprises along the way and some of my fav returning areas.  It takes a little time to get all the way through properly so grab a friend or two and enjoy!

MAZE, The Calas Galadhon's Halloween Sim 2018

Visit MAZE here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/ERIADOR/128/128/21

Many people, including myself., eagerly await the annual Calas Galadhon's Halloween sim build by Ty and Truck.  And now....It''s here! Yay.. So I went in on the group VIP early entry.  At the landing is a little story line and info.  The build has 3 sections: The base camp, which includes the boat tour, The druids circle entered via portal, and The Caverns which is a smaller darker maze leading to the dig and the live music venue. So, I rode the elevator up and grabbed my helmet, torch, and backpack and started my explore.  As usual, the build has a huge feel to it.  I was doing great, enjoying the sights and adventure, breezed right through the big maze, and then I hit the caverns and got SOoooo lost.  I joined people at various times on my journey.  One guy and I literally were lost for a very long time in the dark caverns but eventually claimed our prizes and made our way to the end.  Super super- cool explore! They soon will have live music and events in the larger dance area, which was my final destination when exploring. This is a must see destination.  And while you need to walk it in order to work your way all the way through, you HAVE to take the boat ride first!

Asian Isle, Tian Ya Hai Jiao

Visit Asian Isle here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Moon%20Shine/128/128/23

The sim info states: "欢迎来到 天涯海角  https://www.flickr.com/groups/3790255@N21/
Chinese, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, Japanese, korea, korean, vietnam, thai, malaysia, singapore, sandbox.  Asian and non asian are all welcome here."

This sim is owned by Laurellll.  Profile notes about the sim say: "Swing by to relax, have a blast in a petal boat, or roam around in a golf cart!" [sic]

This beautiful sim has a large bay surrounded by docks and boardwalks and is backed by a plateau topped mountain. You can paddle boat or drive the carts around the lower bay area.  The water has some letters in it that I am not able to read, but see below for more info.  The upper area has some beautifully landscaped areas, buildings and seating areas for relaxing. There are paths all around in park like settings, a cute building around back and great lighting. Overall it's a pretty romantic explore with plenty of photo ops.

So I googled Tian Ya Hai Jiao and found some interesting info. on the first life place which I will quote here. "
Tian Yai Hai Jiao, literally "end of the world/earth" in Chinese, is a world famous seaside scenic area of Sanya, the southmost city of China. Strictly speaking in geography, the Chinese name of this scenic area runs counter to the fact, however, its artistic conception, which comes from a loyal and steadfast love legend in the ancient times, brings huge fame to it. The story goes it that a couple deep in love was forced to broke up and run away from their home because of family feud. Chased after their families, they escaped to this place; however, their love was not still forgiven and they had no choice but jumped into the sea with the wish of staying in the sea together forever. Touched by their love, later generations decided to commemorate them by carving "天涯 (Tian Ya)" and "海角 (Hai Jiao)" on the two huge rocks the couple turned to be, signifying their love will never die even in the end of the world. Nowadays, the site has been seen as a sign of romance and become a must-visit for travelers especially couples"  http://www.visitourchina.com/sanya/attraction/end-of-the-world.html

I always find it extra fun to see places in Second Life that represent first life locations I'll never see in first life, and then learn a little more about that place.  

And now some images, and as always, if you want to see more pics, click on one and it will take you to my Flickr page.....

Lost Unicorn, A Unicorn Sanctuary

Visit Lost Unicorn, A Unicorn Sanctuary Here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Lost%20Unicorn/128/128/25

This is an amazingly gorgeous sim.  Don't let the sim title fool you into thinking this could be some cheesy cliche fantasy sim (which I love btw), because while it is probably some of what you might expect with unicorns, mermaids, stray lights, rainbows, flying rideable winged horses, flowers, butterflies, sparkly lights, etc. its all put together in a beautiful sim with lots of nooks and hidden places including caves and dense forests, a huge dragon clad mountain, actually the dragon seems to be having it out with a winged unicorn, and I cant tell whose guarding the mountain or winning but be sure you get inside the mountain and also check out things in the water. There are plenty of elves and fairies and bridges and exotic paths. The sim has a large feel to it and seems to go on forever.  It's filled with many fantastical beings and has like maybe 5 million wonderful pose, cuddle, and resting places. It even hosts a cool gallery featuring various artists. I like that the sections all seem sort of separate and private, mostly due to great landscaping.

The Lost Unicorn and Lost Unicorn Gallery are owned by Natalie (Natalie.Montagne).  Great job Natalie.! I love it!  Her profile says this about Lost Unicorn: "Dreamy forest full of beauty and  magic where childhood faerie tales come to life!  A unicorn sanctuary where many woodland animals and fantasy creatures can roam safe and free.   *Destination Guide Editor's Pick Winter 2017-18 and
   Summer 2018*"

Lost Unicorn is now in the Second Life Destination Guide, editor's picks.

I've seen earlier versions of Lost Unicorn, and what I've seen before is great, but this version really shines.

I highly recommend using the sim set windlights and when inside the mountain that's guarded by the dragon, enjoy walking the path but ride the bubbles and use the ropes too.  And don't miss exploring  the caves on the other side of the sim too. Click on things, ride and sit in places, cam all around and enjoy it all. It's very well put together.

As a side note, they also have 10 rentals also impressively landscaped.
