Simploring 2019 (99) A trail ride at Broken

I picked “Broken” from scoop.it SL Destinations for my simploring tour on Monday, September 2nd. The pictures I saw were tempting, the landmark description however sounds a bit sad, or at least melancholy “For anyone who has lost someone they loved.” I also read Inara Pey’s blogpost “Broken’s summer beauty in Second Life” about Broken before I went there myself.

Broken bird’s eye view

Broken is a moderate homestead owned by Talia (Natalia Corvale). It consists of seven islands, some of them are connected by bridges, some can only be reached with a boat.

Impressions of Broken (1)

There’s not that much to see at Broken on the first glance, there’s just a few houses, a light house, a lot of grass and green, some trees. But the vastness of the green meadows is impressing and develops it’s own atmosphere. Right next to the landing point is a barn and there I found a horse. I had read in Inara Pey’s post about the horses at Broken and that you can ride them. And so I did! It works perfect, a saddle and all the needed gear is attached to the horse …. and there I could ride. And it is great fun.

With the horse, exploring Broken was even more fun. I visited the few houses. All of them are furnished with love for the detail. I didn’t see any sign that they are not open for visiting. I visited all seven islands and the horse carried me even over the water (well I got more than just wet feet). I found some very nice spots to sit and to enjoy the view where you could also cuddle with your loved one. But mostly I enjoyed riding.

Behind some trees I found an little open air slideshow with a few chairs, a projector and a screen, showing pictures of a couple, most probably the pictures are to the landmark’s description about the loss of someone loved. But it didn’t affect my mood luckily, I just enjoyed the simple but beautiful environment.

Broken is a beautiful sim that convinces with it simplicity, with the vastness of the green meadows, with its space. The few houses are decorated and furnished inside with love and there’re more than enough opportunities to enjoy togetherness.  For me personally the riding was big fun. Thank you, Talia (Natalia Corvale) for sharing your place with the public. I enjoyed my visit (and horse riding) a lot.
