Big thanks to Maria Korolov for coming on Safari with us yesterday. If you missed it, here's some of the highlights.

Hella: Maria is an unprecedented meeting in the world of the metaverse, so enthusiastic since so many years :)), thank you for having organized this evening like no other. 5 months ago
Hi all, Maria Korolov is joining us tomorrow for the first Safari of the Fall season.
The announced venue has changed, though. Meeting at the OSgrid clubhouse, not on the Safari annex. That's because Avacon grid had something happen with its servers, and although it is back online and lovely, there is a bug in Textures.
Do you like chatting in French? Do you want to explore the hyperverse with a gallic air? Then the Soirees Franco are right up your alley. Or should that be allee? Learn more here

My Reviews

CCI Norge

What a wonderful place to visit - and revisit! so much beautiful detail, gifts, fun things to see and do.

Forest of Azure

Absolutely beautiful work - everything positioned with exquisite care. One of the prettiest landscapes you'll find in opensim... with some bonus material you may find intriguing.


This whole grid is so beautiful. Great shops, and fun people too!

Far Far Away

One of the most thought provoking Hunt regions in opensim


So many handy animals! (Caution: region is subject to flooding)

Ivory City

Beautiful, spiritual place.


what a great build! all the entertainment of a real cruise, without the tummy bugs, covid and unexplained drownings. Highly recommend


Really beautiful.


Lovely ambience


Beautiful sim and lots of interesting items, nice job!
