Paradise Smaradise.
Here's the problem: When we hear the word "paradise" most people instinctively think of the beautiful white sandy beach. But, according to the definitions you gave of paradise, its actually more of a feeling...happiness! So maybe for some paradise is getting a bad tan and others its belly flopping with elephants. To each their own, but, for me personally, I'd rather be scrubbing the elephants.

Paradise is quite individual!
Great read, it's amazing how many people comment in blogs about people not enjoying themselves on holiday or on their travels. It's such a shame as they will undboutedly come back wishing they'd made more of their trip rather than pouting on a beach all day.. why go you can do that at home! I think everyone has their idea of paradise.. each probably vastly different to the next persons. I have to say my paradise was not Koh Chang and found many many more beautiful 'paradise' places along our travels so keep looking and you'll find yours one day.

love the way you write
to me Koh Chang is a paradise--I spend a week there every time I go to Thailand--you did get the best Elephant Camp--what beach were you on? I used to go to White Sands Beach--way up on the northern end--secluded-but now too expensive--now Klong Prao--much better

Do you like my hat? I do not.
I absolutely love this entry. You really put some thought into it. You create a mental picture of a destination without bogging the reader down with too many adjectives. Just say it like you see it and with humor. That's what I call perfect. Now WILL YOU PLEASE GO NOW? :)

Cat in the Hat was probably my favorite as a kid, I think I made my parents read it to me a ba-zillion times! Oh, and Green Eggs and Ham. :-) Thanks for reading again. Your comments are so sweet and really encourage me to keep writing.

God of backpacking?
I think, people stay in budget places to make their travel funds stretch. There is no God of backpacking. At least, that is how it is for me, but maybe there are others out there appeasing a God of backpacking.
