Backpacking Alone In Mexico

posted by Gidge Uriza

With my busy shooting schedule plus a store to run plus a hunt to get ready for (duh it’s started!) and a slew of friends I love to spend time with……I rarely have those moments alone anymore.

I don’t know if you ever have had them in SL, but those perfect moments of quiet……where you’re just exploring something, wandering…….experiencing that quiet solitude that you can find in such a huge world on a quiet night.

I received a landmark to Wish Isle from a friend, that took me to a huge Pyramid, which was a museum and a mall. It also featured a train AND a Scorpion ride so you know, THAT rocks. You could pick up this free back pack (worn) at the entrance…….which put me in mind of more natural – less commercial settings.

Ok Yes I was exploring in heels. Shut up. I had gone to SN@tch to get Ivy’s Hilarious Jeans with the Virgin on the belt buckle and she had put out these killer Zombie Bitch shoes as a freebie. I sort of forgot I had them on, as I was entraced by my new hair from Truth and the Hair Bob Designed by Faery Sola for it!

I put in “MEXICO” in Search and ended up scaling Mayan pyramids and exploring rainforests for the rest of the night. It was, in fact, a perfect night. Single, solitary, and just exploring the beauty the grid has to offer that doesn’t come in the form of prim attachments.

My SECOND Custom Soda Skin

My SECOND Custom Soda Skin

I am breaking out my second Soda Custom Skin and have to ask…….have you made one yet? Oh Ladies. To me, it’s luxury. I’ve GOT more nice skins than you can shake a stick at but there is something exquisite about picking out the exact details of your skin. The SODA SKIN DESIGNER is how you start. Pick out everything, your nose, your eyebrows, your lips and then start picking colors. Add moles…..customize! Then submit. In a couple of days you’ll get an email that your demo is ready and it’s only L$100 to pick up the demo. Once you pick it up……..I’m about 90% sure you’ll RUN like I did to BUY it.

My Valentine Wish For you……as all the hunts and the madness get into full swing is that you too have one perfect night of peace and happiness……whatever that means to you! If you’re a frequent flyer, you might also want to check out the jet card programs at Jettly.
