Simploring 2020 (24) Opium Beach and music hall

For my simploring tour on Thursday, March 5th, I picked Opium Beach and music hall from scoop.it SL Destinations, a place tagged with “photo, relax, beach, romantic, hotel, country, tuscany house, river, cave, live music, nude, voice open, chillout”

Opium is a larger part of a full adult region and consist of two plots “Opium Beach and music hall” and “Opium Sex”. I will furtheron refer to it just as Opium.

Opium – overview

Opium is owned by Mr Robb (robbaccia) and the name rang a bell. I had visited “Amandia” in 2017 (read Simploring 2017 (29) Bella Italia – Amandia), which was also owned by Mr Robb (robbaccia) but is gone in the meanwhile.

Impressions of Opium (1) – around the central court

As mentioned before Opium is devided into two plots on the ground level but you won’t really notice it. The landing is at a market place, just next to a little town center and everything look very Mediterranean, yes maybe Italien. The central court at the town is a great motif for taking pictures. There’s also a nice bar and restaurant to sit and enjoy. Or you can walk out into the sea on the two long piers, just for the nice view.

But the sim has more to offer. Close to the central court is an orientation map. It is a bit outdated but still good enough for orientation. You can enjoy the long beaches or you walk and explore the rest of Opium, the farm, the hotel, the villa (in the orientation map still named with “Agri tourism”) or the public pool (Thermae). I didn’t find the Sea Farm for example and I couldn’t find out why one residential house is named “Crazy home”. I recommend to have a look inside of the villa. It is furnished quite luxurious. Opium is a great place to chill, to enjoy the picturesque town or to take photos, for example of the horse that is lost in the pool *winks*

There’s also an adult area on the ground level of Opium, just below of the villa you find a cave (Grotta Azzur) with some adult (bdsm) furniture. This part is not yet full finished.

For getting around you can also use a teleporter network. That will bring you also to other parts in the skies, in particular to the Tuscany square, a really romantic spot where you feel like being in holidays. At that level is also an aread for games and a phot studio, that is open to the public. I was missing the “music hall” that is mentioned in the sim name. Currently there’s no music hall but a big club named “Redd’s” where events can be held. The club is quite stylish inside in my personal opinion.

The teleporter network brings you also to more adult areas – Candle room and Opium Sex. The candle room is a stylish night club, a place for erotic hours while Opium Sex is a big room with table dance, sofas, beds and some BDSM furniture. I couldn’t resist and tried out table dancing *winks*.

Opium has something for everyone, its a beautiful Italien town by the sea with great views, nicely furnished houses and long beaches. And it offers a nice music event space and several (stylish) areas for adult fun.
Thank you Mr Robb (robbaccia) for sharing your place.

Simploring 2017 (29) Bella Italia – Amandia

It seems that the Mediterranean appeals to many of us in a magic way. That’s true at least for me. Wednesday, April 12th, I came across Amandia by following Nix Bubbles’ blog “Places in Secondlife with a tiny pinch of fashin” (link to this blog is in the Active blogs list).Amandia is a little Italian village which offers a really great variety of living, roleply, fun and kink. First of all it is very picturesque and a place for those who like taking pictures. It is made with love and creativity and to me it looks really like a place to spend a vacation. Amandia also presents some art. I did recognize immediatly several of Mistero Hifeng’s art. In addition it has countless places to cuddle, to sit, to dance and to dream. Amandia has several beaches and patio’s, there are (public) vacation homes as well as one private (non-pubic) resident home. There are possibilities for roleplay, night clubs, sky boxes for voyeurs, lesbians and for extreme play. And there is a hotel that has also a suite for bdsm.I visited for about an hour and could just get a little overview. I roamed around in the village first. It is not large but the houses there are not empty and just facades, instead they are furnished very many with details. The village really make you feel like being in Italy. Amazing. I visited some of the skyboxes (kinky), the beaches with the many opportunities to sit, to take a sunbath, to cuddle or to surf. I went to the little half island “Though Isle”, which is more for meditation. I spent time walking along the shore promenade. I walekd up to the lighthouse. I enjoyed many many views .. and of course I couldn’t hold back and also visited the hotel suite for bdsm.
Amandia is a full sim and an adult sim (so you can sunbath naked .. and more). The landmark description lists all the activities: “Vintage city, beach, dance, outdoors, kid, garden, piano’s bar, farm, nature, forest, hangout, live music, sea,  photoset, photostudio, models, hotel, suite, dom, lesbian, bdsm, hospital, Mama Allpa clinic“. Amandia is owned and created by robb (robbaccia). He wrote (in the notecard you’ll get upon landing in Amandia): “I’m very glad to welcome you to Amandia, folklore, arts, nature and hospitality from the  people of ‘LeMarche’, an Italian Region.
The land is open to all ** Human Avatars and Pets **, the moderate area is open to ** Child avatars ** too. You can fly and rez (group required). No Nazis, No fascists. Respect other avatars and have fun
There is not much to add but a big thank you to robb for providing this gem to all SL users.
