Where's your paradise?

November 12, 2021

#FelizFriday!
 

If you could close your eyes and instantly transport yourself to a tropical beach paradise, where would you go? 

With the days merging together, the sun caressing your face, and the warm ocean touching your soul, you could be in...

the Bahamas,
Hawaii,
St. Barths,
around the world in Bali,
or right here in Pura Vidadise aka Costa Rica!

The ethereal expanse of turquoise waters and sugar white beaches that ignites the soul and inspires you. 

Nothing else matters when you're in your paradise.


So now go on and close your eyes, take a deep breath, and feel that warm sand in between your toes as the waves gently kiss the shore, just like Dear Paradise below.🏖  

 

And welcome back to a piece of your tropical beach paradise, wherever you may be reading this post from.

P.S. As you most likely have guessed, I do love Costa Rica, but my first tropical paradise love will always be the Caribbean island of Antigua, where my paternal grandparents lived.In fact, my first birthday was celebrated in Antigua and it’s where I learned to swim…and get crushed by waves!!! So whenever I think of tropical paradise, I instantly think of Antigua and all of her pretty beaches, warm water, and the dreamy turquoise blue waters!

Why photography?
How long have I been photographing?
