Meet Me in the Metaverse - Mont Saint Michel

I'm a real life explorer. I try to plan a trip out of the country every few years. Several years back, I saw a pic of Mont Saint Michel in Normandy, France and it's been on my must see list ever since. I just haven't gotten back to France yet. One of the things I love best about SL is the chance to see some recreations of RL things be it architecture to toys. It always brings a smile. Since I've not made it to Normandy yet, at least I have gotten to explore Mont Saint Michel virtually. And it's my Meet Me in the Metaverse pick of the week.

Mont Saint Michel is a lovely estate sim that not only serves as a recreation of this historic landmark but also has a good bit of retail. It is the home of Edelweiss and anyone reading this that is a fashionista knows it's the end stop for the bi-yearly CSR coupon event. (Which is going on now). I want encourage you all to take a big roam around the sim and see how beautifully the creators have recreated the multiple elevations that make up this fantastic RL landmark.

I love butler_cathands' piece Le Mont Saint Michel. I'm sure to find something similar on a postcard once I visit this real life landmark. The fog effect used on this piece adds a good bit of realism.

Chaos_Teardrop's Le Mont Saint-Michel takes an interesting perspective on the gianormus structure. It gives a fantastic aerial to see the grounds and all the levels.

Tallie's Mont Saint Michel piece takes us out of the clouds and down to street level. As you can see from this work, there is a lot more to Mont Sant Michel than just the outer structure.

If you are interested in having your sim featured on Meet Me in the Metaverse, please feel free to contact me in game or via the PM feature within Koinup.
