My whole life, I had wanted to live on an island. I knew I would one day live my dream. I believed it with all my heart and soul. In my mind’s eye, I saw miles and miles of beautiful beaches on a magical sun-drenched island. A secluded haven filled with the wonders of Nature in all its myriad forms.
Think Chiang Mai. Phuket. Cebu. Bali. Phi Phi Island. Koh Samui. The Maldives. Stunning tropical sunsets. Balmy air. Spectacular scenery. Coconut palms dotting picturesque coastlines. Healthy, delicious cuisine. Spacious thatched roof huts, complete with all the mod cons necessary for life. Warm, friendly, good-natured people. Warm blue sea. Peace and quiet.
These are the main attractions in my visualization of the island paradise. The place where I would live and work, far from the madding crowd.
