Great Second Life Destinations: London

Great Second Life Destinations: London | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it

I have been fortunate enough to live in the very pretty London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames for several years. It is a magical part of Britain on the Thames River in West London, with river cafes, hills, a very large park full of deer, and some very posh and expensive accommodations -- which I was lucky enough to beat by finding affordable rent. Feel Beautiful, which is actually a shopping destination for fashion conscious female avatars, reminds me very much of charming Richmond.
