An old friend took me to The Lost Gardens of Apollo around the second month of my Second Life. Quite frankly, I was stunned at that time. I had never been to such a magical place before except in my imagination. At the time, I thought the place must stretch between a minimum of (4) sims. There were so many places there to see and visit.
The floating pools, the towers, the gardens, all the pathways leading to cuddle zones and the buildings and walkways kept you there for hours. And with a loved one, you could experience a dreamy, exotic place for romance and exploration…
Xavier and I went back to Dane Zander’s Lost Gardens to revisit the place. We both love Salsa y Boleros, the elegant ballroom on the platforms. This was the place of our first date so we went back in holiday clothes to reminisce about that time. And we couldn’t help but explore the sim again.
Sometimes, when you go back to a place, the experience isn’t quite the same. You’ve been there and the impact isn’t quite as strong, but going back to Apollo’s… well, the impact is still there. We stayed for hours. The Lost Gardens holds and mesmerizes you. The place is magic without the bling. An elegance in design and purpose, The Lost Gardens of Apollo is one of the finest sim builds on the entire grid. This is a sim to be preserved… no matter what virtual world you are in.
