 I read somewhere that sailboats symbolize journey and adventure and they are also associated with being carried along by the “breath of life”. I think the same rings true for flying as well; to be able to pierce through the white cotton candy skies and feel free. Second Life makes all these exciting dreams come true. For a short while, you can be the Captain of your ship or plane and enjoy fun adventures.  Since waterways in SL have no ban lines, the Blake Sea is a paradise for sailing and also for flying. Finding a perfect place to drop and sail in this case fly as well can be challenging and expensive at times.


I was very thrilled to explore Dream Island which is accessible to the Blake Sea and meet with the owner DJ Don. At first glance you can see the owner is very proud of his opulent seaside community, the added details did not go unnoticed such as gas pumps for the boats, a marina, beach areas, a club, apartments, cottages, and a large airport! My eyes were very busy scanning the whole area. Dream Island is also associated with GTFO, (Get The Freight Out) which is a hud based game in Second Life for people who enjoy traveling around the grid in planes, boats, trucks, trains, helicopters, and more.

Roxy Mystic: Hi Don, it is a pleasure to meet with you to discuss this little gem of a place you have here! I will admit I love sailing so seeing all of this makes me smile. Can you please tell me about your little slice of paradise?

DJ Don: Hello Roxy, above us is the airport, the club here is located on the west marina and there is an east side channel with cottages. The airport is GTFO available and then I have the apartments overlooking the ocean and airport. I am renting plane tie downs, hangers, apartments, cottages, houseboats, underwater homes and boat slips. All apartments and cottages come with locking doors. I have 3 main rules: no ban lines, no orbs, and nothing built above the home. I have a few places rented and I am happy to say that planes and choppers are flying in and out all day.

Roxy Mystic: You are such a busy man Don and if all that was not enough I understand you are also a DJ? I really like that you made the Dream Island Rocker Club open like this so people can sit here, party, and still see passing boats and the ocean. Tell me a bit about yourself and how Dream Island became your passion.

DJ Don: I had a place on the mainland, rented apartments and I never knew you could fly or boat in here. When I found out, I had to have my own. I was looking for land for an airport and a marina then I found a small section of an airport area which was abandoned so I purchased it from linden. I started building a small airport then slowly 1 by 1 more property became available and I bought it up. I have many boats, ships, and aircraft. It's fun! As for DJing, I've been doing it in RLC for 10 years so I am looking forward to getting known here.

Roxy Mystic:  I did look at your rental fees and to be honest they are very affordable. A cottage that size with a place to dock your boat too for only 349L is quite amazing. And you have boat houses for rent as well. But what got my attention is the underwater home! It's not for mermaids, it's actually a home that is underwater! So this is really like a small village for all the plane and boat enthusiasts! So why are your prices so amazingly low?

DJ Don:  I have checked prices around and I'm trying to keep them about the same or lower, in most cases, they are lower. People can use my furniture or theirs. I have rez zones at both the airport and marina where people can rez and it's a safe zone so their aircraft or boats will not delete while they are here.  I hope to build a nice community here.

Roxy Mystic: I guess based on the name of the club, it's not hard to guess that you are a rocker Don! Talk to me about the Dream Island Rock Club and what are your plans here.

DJ Don: Yes, Classic Rock, my live stream plays here and it streams in 137 countries. I am live of course when I have an event. We may be looking for DJs and hosts in the future too.  I am hoping to be here at the Dream Island Rock Club every Friday.

Roxy Mystic: I noticed you have stores here as well. Do you have more storage space available in case someone wishes to rent here?

DJ Don: Yes, stores are for rent too. I have affiliate clothes in them now but more can be made available.

Roxy Mystic:  I get the impression you are a very flexible person if someone wants to do something they can discuss it with you?

DJ Don:  Yes, like the plane hangers, there were 3 there and one renter wanted something bigger so I removed 2 of them and built him an area. He fell in love with it and I even put a name on it for him. I get good feedback from visitors. I also rented 2 plane parking areas 2 days ago to a girl and she was so excited she found this place, she loves it!

Roxy Mystic: So you run this whole place on your own? You are basically the mayor, police, air traffic control, and also entertainer!

DJ Don: Yes, I have a friend (Willow) known her for 12 years from RLC and she is around to help people when I'm not available.

Roxy Mystic: If I was to ask you Don what do you like the most here and no cheating you can only pick one! Sailing, Flying, DJing, or something else?

DJ Don:  OMG! Really I got to choose one? I guess flying but building all this is great fun.

At the end of the interview, Don offered me a nice helicopter ride. It was my first time up in the air and I truly enjoyed flying around and getting a good view of the area. DJ Don is a very friendly person with a good heart, I can tell he is very passionate about Dream Island. If you have any boating or aviation questions I am sure Don will be happy to assist you. In the meantime, I recommend you visit Dream Island and explore this quaint seaside community and perhaps make it your home!

A Tour of Second Norway- Sunny Love Holiday Reporting

I enjoy keeping up with the activities of the people and places I do articles on. I truly believe in who and what I write about, and love to see their success. Recently Luciano Liónheart, formally known as Luciano de Prata , informed me that his popular  Luciano Jazz Club & Lounge moved to a new sim named Second Norway. I have heard a lot about this sim, and asked Mr. Liónheart if he would like to meet up and chat a bit about his move and the sim he now resides in. To my delight he was eager to meet, and invited me to his lovely home for tea.

After catching up on some personal things, Luciano explained how much he loved his new beginnings and talked about some of the gems around the 40 sims that makes up Second Norway. “Second Norway is owned by Ey Ren and Mialinn Telling. Gracefully, they have trusted me with most of this sim (the mainland) and a lot of other gems around SN.” Mr. Liónheart, proudly explained.  “Along with my Jazz club, I took over and remodeled the local hotel, Hotel Bryggen along with Bella Bistro, which is SL's oldest restaurant.” 

Of course, I was excited to hear of Mr. Liónheart growing success, but my excitement reached new heights when he offered me a personal tour of the sims. “Sunny, I would actually recommend that you try to stay here as a guest. Our staff is really what makes this amazing!” Needless to say I happily accepted his offer. I was contacted by the Manager of VSN Travel, Kristina Taov, shortly after leaving Luciano’s home and directed to meet her at the Brook Hill Airport for my flight into the Second Norway Airport, the largest one in SL, formed by 8 sims. It is also equipped with a subway/train infrastructure so all the regions in Second Norway can stay interconnected and accessible by train. Despite my fear of heights and planes, I couldn’t wait to get this tour started!

My Fears were quickly put to rest as Kristina guided the luxury aircraft across the clear skies, assuring me all will be fine. Flying was actually perfect because I had a clear view of the sims, and all the wonders it entails. Once we landed, we immediately jumped in a private motorcar and drove to the mainland. I was pleasantly impressed with the landscaping and ocean view. I imaged it looked just as it would in RL Norway.

Our 1st stop was at Hotel Bryggen. The hotel looked like a perfect get away for families and couples alike. “Here tour guests can stay for a weekend, close enough to all the places with weekend activities, such as Bella Bistro Restaurant, Luciano’s Club & Lounge, the Art Galleries, Shopping Mall and Marina.” Kristina explained. “All are accessible from this point. It is possible to sail, ride bicycles or take the train.” We entered the hotel and I must say I instantly started planning in my head when I would have time to return with my group of friends for a weekend of fun.  I fell in love the rustic looking suites they have. It totally made me feel like I was in the RL rustic Norway atmosphere.

Next, we climbed aboard a large sail boat and traveled across the Sailing Sims, passing all the previously mentions activity spots.  I noticed a seafront retreat that I believe would be perfect for lovers to enjoy each other.  Our boat ride ended at Boatel, a hotel for lovers by the water. “A boat is guested during guests stay here so they can sail around all the connected regions. Also there is a small airstrip on top of the mountain if they want to fly as well.” Kristina told me with a bright smile on her face.  Lovers that stay here are truly pampered with all the amenities offered.

Once our boat ride was over, we took a bicycle ride to the top of a mountain. Kristina handed me a glass of champagne and asked me to join her on a hot air balloon ride.  Firecrackers popped off as we enjoyed the cool breeze and spectacular view of all of the sims. I couldn’t believe how well put together the Second Norway sims were put together. Every event, activity, hotels, and venue was so easily accessible with many ways of travel. The balloon ride ended in front of The Bella Bistro Restaurant. I quickly entered to enjoy a hot cup of coffee before I left.

While enjoying my coffee, I asked Kristina what were her thoughts of second life Norway. “This is a place where all your dreams can come true!” she beamed. I couldn’t agree more. There is so much to do, see and enjoy that it is impossible not to have a fun filled vacation. More than one trip would be needed to enjoy all they have to offer, without doing the same thing twice. This is a sim I highly recommend and will return to shortly myself. I could use a vacation and there is nowhere else I would rather be!
