The Great Wall Tour | Mt Campion Photography Tour | Events & Announcements | New Locations


The Bellisserian Embassy in Heterocera invites you to a new exploration tour. This time a classic and real cultural grid heritage site will be the destination: the Great Wall of Heterocera. The tour first involves a train ride to Amelia and then a helicopter flight from the airfield there, crossing the inner atoll to Horisme. The tour group will  then travel by bus and off-road vehicle along the Great Wall through twelve regions.
The journey will provide great views of the regions of the western Heterocera and great opportunities for fantastic photographs. From the end of the Great Wall in Athetis, it will continue along the High Mountain Route 6 to Sabre. Route 6 offers many beautiful views and attractions to explore.
In Sabre, four-legged friends will await all travellers and the descent by horseback will go to Sabre SLRR Station. Nearby, an Irish pub invites you to stop and wash the dust of the country road from your throat. Her Excellency Dariah Raynier, Hon. Ambassador to Heterocera, told The Gazette;
Sometimes we don't really notice the old things that seem to have been there forever Together with H.E. Yukiko Yeshto, I'm delighted to offer a tour that lets you experience the old in a new way by rail, air, bus and horse.
Yukiko Yeshto and Dariah Raynier are looking forward to doing this tour with the citizens and friends of Bellisseria and Heterocera. After the tour, an information card can be provided so that everyone can explore the highlights of the tour on their own again.

The tour is scheduled to last one to one-and-a-half hours. It starts at 12pm SLT on November 5th from the station at Tersa. Please watch out in the group notices for further information.

Photography Tour SignMount Campion National Forest has announced its first ever Photography tour. This will be different from the usual park tours, because the emphasis is on SL photography and taking pictures of their scenic park.

The tour will begin at 8:00 AM SLT on Sunday Oct 30 at the Mount Campion Art Gallery.

It will start with a short lesson from WrenNoir Cerise, who is the co-founder and co-instructor of Visionaire’s Institute of Photography. Visionaire has been training people in SL photography for years, and has turned out a lot of outstanding and skilled photographers. Wren’s talk will be on SL voice only (no text in local chat), and the topic is “Taking Nice Pictures.”

After Wren’s talk, the tour of the park will continue, taking in five particularly scenic areas and giving people ten to fifteen minutes at each location to take pictures. This part of the tour is expect to last approximately 90 minutes. Information will be provided about each location in local chat if there is anyone who is unable to hear SL voice.

People are invited to submit some of the pictures they take during the tour for display in the park's gallery. If you are unable to do the tour, you can still take pictures and submit them at the gallery's mailbox.

Of late however, following a migration to new servers, there have been technical issues and we've noticed in the Citizens Group chat, for example, that some of you have had problems getting to us. We do apologise.

If you're a fitness enthusiast with transporter phobia, you'll have been wondering how to visit the gym and mini golf course etc. at Ashworth. Today we have good news for you as Ashworth Heliport has opened. Let's face it, Second Life® is even more fun when you get into air, sea, road and rail transport. TPs are a banal at best, nauseating at worst, mode of transport.

Speaking of transport, there's a friendly biker club to be found in Nautilus called Lele Air & Space. Also to be found in Nautilus is Ho'onanea Club & Marina. Both locations are now issuing our passport stamps to be sure to record your visit officially when checking them out.
