BUS AND PLANE TOURS ARE NOW AVAILALBLE
Ever wonder if an immersive multi-stop tour is available to not only collect multiple BBB Passport Stamps, but to also see the way in which numerous stamps are connected via the numerous Linden Department of Public Works (LDPW) roadways, coastal waters or airway flight paths? Well, wonder no longer!
We will begin with the flight tours being offered since they were the first tour type to be developed. Gemini Ravenwood (paganshadow resident,) a virtual airline pilot and member of the BBB users group, has created two multi-continent mainland BBB Stamp tours.
Tour 1 traverses the Nautilus and Satori continents, begins at White Star Airport, and allows the collection of six stamps upon completion at The Dirty Oar.
Tour 2 travels across the continents of Sansara, Bellisseria and Jeogeot, affording passenger to collect six completely different stamps.
Active in many mainland travel tours, Yukiko Yeshto has created an overland route via vintage bus, primarily in the Bellisseria continent, but, once again, two tours available to collect 11 other completely seperate stamps.
The tours are currently running, but are still in development as new stamps are introduced. As of this printing they happen on Thursdays at 11am SLT, with the Bus and Plane tours alternating weeks, and the individual tours for each travel method also alternating.
Even if you have collected the stamps being offered, it makes for a really delightful couple of hour of exploration and travel around Second Life, not to mention the opportunities for new friendships as the groups embark on their tours.
There are also plans to have a Second Life RailRoad (SLRR) tour as stamp destinations along the routes are discovered.

CHANGE IN LOCATION CATEGORIES
As we now have more than one railway station in our stamp locations, the BBB Management Directorate has decided to rename Category 1 in the Online Travel Guide to "Airports / Ports / Railway Stations". The Zany Zen Railway has therefore been moved from Category 5, "Other", to Category 1. This week's new railway station – details under New Locations below – has also been added to Category 1.
We are pleased to report that 79% of respondents would recommend us to a friend vs 5% who wouldn’t.
92.5% considered our services to be of very high or high quality.
85% said we were responsive or very responsive to questions or concerns.
The most common way of finding out about our services was from friends or the Bellisseria Citizens Group chat.
If we were to be ashamed about anything in the results, it’s that only one respondent complained about our rudeness! We apologise to fellow bureaucrats everywhere for this betrayal of the profession's traditions. We promise we will try to do worse better.
Thanks again for taking the time to let us know your views. In all seriousness we are here to make your Second Life® more fun and we are glad so many of you enjoy what we do.
This week we have three new locations where you can get your passport stamped. They include an impressive hydro-electric power station – providing energy to Heterocera, as its land info proudly states. There's also a party house and a huge railway station – home of the Virtual Railways Consortium. All the details you need are below.
