The Harbour in Second Norway

The Harbour in Second Norway

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 24th September, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams as we pay a visit to the beautiful – and fascinating – community of Second Norway.

We’ll be exploring some characteristically Norwegian parts of this region – such as the downtown harbour region, and the fascination Stave Church – to say nothing of the historically accurate re-creation of a Viking encampment – now put to a very modern use! But we’ll also be seeing how Second Norway is created by the efforts of an international community – including Esperanto speakers!

Joining us on the show will be the co-owners of Second Norway, Ey Ren and Mialinn Telling, and we’ll also not only be exploring the fiords (by boat) but also taking a motorbike ride along a re-creation of the famous Atlantic Ocean Road.

Second Norway, of course, was the Region of the Month in the January 2012 issue of Prim Perfect so, if you want, you can read more there!

This is a fascinating study of how a residential community is built, grown and sustained in a virtual world – and has lots of beautiful locations too. So do come and join us at 2pm!
