It’s been a wild few weeks and I’ve been away from SL since Thanksgiving.  Contrary to how much I love to fly in SL, I absolutely hate it in RL but still managed to go on 7 flights in 2 weeks.  Everything from visiting family to work travel, it was just insane.  So, now I’m super excited to have the chance to getaway in SL! I’ve planned out a getaway weekend full of different activities and a stay at the newly remodeled Essencia Hotel this weekend.  I was ecstatic when I landed and saw a completely new layout.  There are more guest-only areas, including an outdoor pool and spa, brand new gym and there’s even a cool boardroom I plan to take over for a meeting tomorrow.
