Celebrate Norwegian National Day by Visiting Tromso Sim in Springtime, One of Second Life's Most Satisfying Destinations

Tromso City Hall in Spring (in background)

The beautiful and breath-taking nation of Norway celebrates it's 199th  National Day today. Norway is very well represented in Second Life, and I am sure there will celebrations at the beautiful Second Norway series of sims for you to visit today.

Today would also be a great day to visit Jimmy Warbaum's Tromso Sim.  I have featured this perfectly designed gem of a destination several times here in the past year (you can find links under the next paragraph). Tromso is a very scenic city inside the Arctic Circle, and has an amazingly mild climate for being this far north due to the warming effects of the Arctic Current. Jimmy has done an excellent job in building a reasonable facsimile of the city in the confines of a sim. His own lighting effects approximates a day cycle which show the Northern Lights during the right time of the year here.

Highly recommended for a visit.

Note: I will be featuring an article on the Tromso Library (a gorgeous modern structure which you can see in the 5th photograph down) which is located on this sim later this month.
