Following Inara Pey’s blog I read her blog entry “Autumn walks all start with a smile in Second Life” and decided to visit “It all starts with a smile” myself. I was there already this summer during a Saturday simploring tour and my impressions from my last visit were confirmed. “It All Starts With A Smile (IASWAS) is a picturesque sim by Kaelyn Alecto … It is a group of tropical islands with many places to sit and cuddle, to have a drink, to relax and I could almost feel the sun. At least I had a feeling of vacation and laziness.”
What has changed is the vegetation. It is not a group of tropical islands anymore. It is a group of islands of the northern hemisphere in autumn now. Upon my landing I met Kaelyn McMahon (akelyn.alecto), who owns this sims, and her partner Gorba McMahon, who welcomed me and wished fun exploring. I walked around the main lake and visited some of the houses, barns and huts scattered around the lake. There is always something to discover like the small red hut which is used as an atelier.The outstanding feature of IASWAS are for sure the many places to sit, mediate and to cuddle. I enjoyed drinking a coffee at the campfire while smelling the autumn. My favourite spot is a raft just by the shore, maybe because of the saying written on the cushions “Life is like riding a bicycle: to keep your balance you must keep moving” and that is so true!
While I was sitting at my favourite spot, I had a chat with Vero (vero.hartmann) and I invited her over. We continued chatting and and enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere. IASWAS is worth a visit, in particular when you seek a nice place to wind down or to cuddle. Thank you Kaelyn for providing your place to the public.
