Simploring 2018 (37) I am [SL] Amsterdam

My destination for another simploring tour on Monday, April 23rd, was “I am [SL] Amsterdam“, which I found following the blog “The Second Life Tourist“. Isabella Coletti (Belladochas Minoptra) reported about “I am [SL] Amsterdam” in her blog April 21st.

I am [SL] Amsterdam – overview

I am [SL] Amsterdam” is a homestead sim owned by inkie Loudwater. She says about herself that she’s Second Life shop and blogaholic and she writes about Second Life Fashion, Home & Garden and Music in her blog Pixel Styles (older posts are in a seperate blog here).

I am [SL] Amsterdam” is, no surprise, inspired by the city of Amsterdam and the Netherlands. inkie told me that the name of her homestead refers to a big sign in Amsterdam “I amsterdam”. I am [SL] Amsterdam” consists of a few buildings, streets and one of the typical canals in the center and is surrounded by green flat land and water.
On the green land you find a broken lighthouse, a piece that I saw quite often in the meanwhile and that is obviously quite popular in SL. There’re are also some modern wind mills and an old wind mill. The ground floor of the old wind mill is used as a class room.

The little center of “I am [SL] Amsterdam” offers a lot to discover inside, like a fitness studio or a car shop or a dirty backyard. Just what you’d expect in a city. At the waterfront you find two houseboats, also typical for the Netherlands. I like the setting of the city surrounded by the green meadows, I think that’s particular and provides the dutch touch.
inkie told me that she changes her sim according to the season, so depending on the time of your visit you might see something a bit different.

I am [SL] Amsterdam” is a nice and peaceful place. It provides a lot of views and backgrounds for pictures and it is fun to explore. Thank you inkie for providing your sim to the public. I did enjoy my visit.

A Beautiful 4 Seasons in Second Life

I explored “Beautiful 4 Seasons” Sunday afternoon. It is charming and peaceful. What I like in particular are the fields and meadows of the simsurround. Really a perfect surrounding for the sim! I never saw that before and it adds a lot to the overall charme of Beautiful 4 seasons. There are plenty of spot just to stand or sit and enjoy. Thank you for this advice, Inara!

“This region is my labour of love :D,” Inkie (inkie Loudwater) tells me as I admire the latest iteration of her Homestead region, Beautiful 4 Seasons. “I change  it every season; it’s an ongoing process, so the more people enjoy it, the better it is!”

Looking around the region it’s hard to imagine it not being a staple part of people’s itineraries when exploring Second Life. It sits as a mostly low-slung island in the centre of a lake. Across the water and completely surrounding it, a patchwork quilt of fields recede towards misty, distant hills and rounded, grassy peaks. it’s not quite England’s Lake District – but it could be.

The island forms a west pointing C, a smaller island nestled within its curving arms. A tiny hamlet sits along one arm of the C…
