Simploring 2017 (90) Borneo Isle

I followed Inara Pey’s blog entry about Borneo Isle “A trip to Borneo in Second Life” and visited it myself. The landmark description is incomplete “Borneo is an all-new sim designed as a beautiful destination for those looking to explore, relax or simply pass the time with friends. This intricately detailed sim is open to all visitors, and offers a breath-taking landscape created by the amazingly ta” I assume that the maximum of letters was reached and that Gac Akina, the owner of Borneo Isle, wanted to give credit to the designer of the sim Neva Crystall (nevacrystall).

November 10th: Impressions of Borneo Isle – Around the landing point

Borneo Isle isn’t in the jungle, it’s just somewhere, maybe in Europe or North America. It consists of a larger and a smaller island, both are high rocks in the ocean and are connected by a bridge. Borneo Isle is set for the season, hence it is cold but not winter already.

November 10th: Impressions of Borneo Isle – The nature growing back in the buildings

Arriving at the landing point in the middle of the main island and looking around you see a lovely autumn setting, bicycles, benches … and it looks inhabited. On the second view and taking a closer look, you see that the few buildings are abandonned, the nature is already taking the place back. The two buildings close to the landing are still full of stuff and furniture but the bushes and trees begin to grow even inside.
Form the landing point you can dare to walk downstairs on a wooden partly broken construction down to a bay where you find some old furntiure to sit on. Although is obviously abandonned it has it’s own charme and I spent some time there. In one edge there’s a chair, a guitar and an oven in a small shelter, just as if someone has discovered this place overlooking the bay as a personal secret retreat.

It’s fun to explore this Borneo Isle. I walked over the bridge to the smaller island and enjoyed the views. On the smaller island is another building and that is not abandonned. It’s used as bar and event hall and from Inara Pey’s blog post I learned it is supposed to be used for some events.

What else? On the main island is one building that you can’t access, most probably that’s where the owner of Borneo Isle settled. The building does fit perfect into the style. Just everything is very detailled and fitting to the style. A really great and thoughtfully designed place. I enjoyed my vist very much! Thank you, Gac Akina, for providing your place to the public.
