Lula

Lula is a truly lovely sim, in winter scenery mode, but with some parts reminiscent of spring and others of fall... It is very well made, relatively quiet (usually with three or four people present, no more), and I enjoyed exploring it... from hilly meadows and fields to quiet village and lightly forested areas... Every curve in the paths or roads bringing something new to look at.

Imrath Tir SouthEast

Imrath Tir Southeast was formerly part of a set comprising up to 3 other sims, one of the oldest roleplay sims in second life. It appears to be mostly a residential sim now, quiet and snow-covered, though several deciduous trees still have their leaves.

Whatever happened to... Kenroku?

I am not sure when Kenroku disappeared, but it was a lovely Japanese sim following the seasons. I visited in March of this year, and to my chagrin when I tried to return to it, a month ago, it was gone.

Serenity Woods

Serenity Woods has a touch of ice fog as you walk on the paths... It feels quiet, a bit magical... Check the various tp points too.

Rossers Landing -Steampunk Sim

A friend recommended that sim, so I went... It is indeed a steampunk sim, with touches of antiquity and advanced technology, as expected...

Elderflower

Someone recommended I visit Elderflower and so I went... I found a snow covered sim with some parts strangely warmer than others... I found a nice fireplace to warm myself up...

Capella

A romantic sim I discovered by chance (doing a search with the word cap), it is set in summer-like weather. The mountains have tunnels dug into them which light up as you are walking through. The tunnels and the trails lead to secluded spots for friends or lovers to sit together. The sim is fairly quiet, most of the people I have seen there seem to write using the cyrillic alphabet (from what I could tell in the local chat), I am not sure which language it was (feel free to let me know).

Mermaid Isle -Lake Selene

The skybox is delightfully romantic, a dragon in the snow and a sleigh besides it for cuddling, with room to dance with a loved one. If you manage to find your way downstairs, there is an ice pond surrounded by hoar-frost covered trees.

whatever happened to... Ketama?

This sim was a dark urban sim with stores and a small art gallery, and I blogged on it in March of this year... It was based on the movie Green Mile. A small forested patch brought great relief to the desolation of the urban area. The sim is gone, it may have moved, but I dont know where. If any of you know, share the location in a comment, I would be delighted.
