When I was in Paradise…

It was back in April, 2012. I had been already 2 months in Thailand doing research for my Masters thesis but I decided to take few days off, totally off, to visit some of those beautiful places I heard from many people who had been in Thailand before and those places i saw in pictures.

I had many things going on in my head, sometimes I think too much (toooo much) I felt I needed some time to Not Think… So, I left Bangkok and I found Paradise…..

However, my life can´t  be normal. The peace of mind I got at that moment was a bit disturbed when in our way back to Krabi (on a boat) We had a Tsunami alert…..

Yes! We were in the middle of the Andaman Sea going from Phi Phi Island to Krabi and we heard that there was an earthquake somewhere in Indonesia.

What to do? No one knew….

It is a long story, as all my stories, but the great part of the story is that beacuse of that Tsunami alert (which luckily didn´t happen) I couldn´t stay in the very cheap hostel I was staying in.  Instead, after a great adventure, I ended up in Paradise II….

I got an unbelievable discount that night (and the night after) just because I´m always lucky…. And I got some tours around Krabi beaches….

I got a great view of the Andaman Sea and its beautiful tiny islands

The time in the Paradise II was over,  I went back to Bangkok to celebrate the Songkran (Thai New Years) but as soon as the Songkrant was over I went to Paradise III..

I did a mini tour around the island and visit beautiful beaches with the whitest sand I have ever seen…

Of course, during the night it was still a chilling Paradise…

No words needed to explain why I call this Paradise, right?
