Places to go & People to see

bust a move_001Whenever I visit the landmarks in my inventory I don't find any avatars. This seems to be a reoccurring problem for me. I decided to go on a search for avatars so I chose to go to a club on Saturday night. I first changed my outfit then teleported there. Upon arriving they all greeted me and some even called me "Sky", I liked the nickname since it made me feel more a ease there. The only problem I had was I didn't know how to dance. I sat on a white couch in the corner and watched the dance floor for a few minutes. I finally got the courage to ask the avatars there how to dance. They all gave me instructions on what to do, so I headed out to the dance floor and busted a move. When they left they even said bye to me! I was so happy to finally have socialized a bit.

However, on my next trip to Epiphany Island I did not come across any avatars. When I arrived it was night and light was shining through the beautiful stained glass windows which was cool because it made the church seem real. I wouldn't think of putting that small detail in. There were rows of pews on each side and the alter was illuminated with a greenish light. Leaving the church to my right was an area where you can light a candle. This feature is also in real churches which made the church seem real.

My last stop was Dublin. Even though it was dark and quiet out, it was still very nice to fly around. My friends have visited Dublin so I always wondered what it looked like. I wasn't sure what to expect at first. The streets were different from that of the other places I visited because they were a little more complicated since each way split compared to going both ways. I would like to visit Dublin when it is lighter out so I will be able to see it more and hopefully meet avatars.


  1. Wow! Your pictures are so good. That club looks so intriguing i'll have to make a visit there. Is that you dancing on your head?! It's good that you finally have socialized a little bit I have to do the same more often. I have yet to meet many avatars. Looks like you had fun though! Again, I really enjoy your pictures!

  2. You'd probably find Dubliners in virtual Dublin at the same place you'd find them in the Irish city: in the pub...last year my class members found company there most any time. Just look for the green dots on the map and wander that way.

    One usage note that will save you trouble in a different setting: you have "stain glass windows" when the correct term is "stained glass."
