Simploring 2017 (69) Another Long Journey

When I came across Inara Pey’s blog entry “A further Long Journey in Second Life“, the title already rang a bell. And yes, Inara as well as I visited “Long Journey” a couple of months ago in March 2017 (read here).

Long Journey – Overview

So what changed? First of all the landmark. Long Journey has moved to another sim. But Yang (sun2idea) did not just move, he further developed his small town that is packed on a sky platform of about 90 * 180 meters. Being in Long Journey you don’t realise that it is that small – and this small town offers a lot!
Compared to the old sim, Long Journey grew nonetheless. The canal, filled with houseboats that are used as restaurants or as event places, is now more in the West. The town is limited by a railraod for goods in the West, a big factory building in the North with a tall chimney, containers and shops in the South and houses, that are arranged in several levels and connected by stairs in the East.

As before, there’s a lot to discover. It is like a vacation day, you walk along bars, restaurants, the event center, cafe’s, a market. You see street art and find many places to sit and just hang around. Although there’s so much packed in this comparable small place, it doesn’t look articifial at all. It looks like a town that grew naturally with the tourism. And where is it? It could be somewhere in Asia, at least it has Asian influcences but for me it looks more like “Little China” in a town somewhere in America. At some edges it looks a bit down-at-heel, just like you would expect it in a district like Little China, other edges are full of life.

Yang rebuild Long Journey even better than the old one was already, a place to explore and to enjoy. He wrote about it “A small town for you to take pics, hangout and relax yourself in the beautiful landscape. Enjoy your journey, get the free gift, take the incredible photo.” Thank you Yang!
