In this day and age, because of all the choices we have as consumers by way of what we want to watch, you can tell a lot about what a person aspires to and dreams about just by taking a closer look at the shows they spend their time watching. I mean you can practically jump online to watch shows you’ve caught wind of and naturally, by way of advertising it seldom gets more targeted than that, subsequently.
No prizes for guessing what kind of TV shows I’ve binged on myself then, but I’ll give you a hint and point you in the direction of the likes of the BBC’s “Wanted in Paradise” and the Travel Channel’s “House Hunters International”, amongst many others of course. Any commercial footage to be shot in the Cayman Islands in particular is under very strict control however, so I guess that’s kind of what makes this place I now call home that much more in-demand. I can honestly say that I live in somewhat of a paradise, although many people who visit and even settle in these types of places go on to turn around and proclaim that it’s not really paradise after all.
I mean if you might have listened to some of the interviews conducted with the staff that works on the likes of Necker Island in the BVI, quite a few of them will say that it’s not quite paradise for them. It’s totally understandable because paradise is subjective – what’s paradise for me isn’t necessarily paradise for you and that’s okay. That’s the whole point in actual fact, but I guess the reason why my kind of paradise is often sold as THE paradise is because of some religious references and just how the travel and tourism industry sells the tropics, generally.
I mean think about it – even if your idea of paradise isn’t the white sandy beaches, palm trees and azure waters, often this picture is exactly what’s sold as the ultimate paradise.
In truth this unofficially universal view of what paradise is, is only really paradise for a minority of people in the world. As much as the locals who were born and live in island countries such as the Seychelles generally never want to permanently leave what they themselves deem to be their paradise home, many visitors such as honeymooners could never imagine themselves living in such places permanently. I reiterate, that’s okay – the reason why the total land surface area of these paradise-like islands is much smaller than the area mainland continents cover is indeed because only a few people in the world, relatively speaking want to call such places home.
YOUR paradise could be a nice neighbourhood in Palm Beach for example, with the little things like living in a pest-free environment making it so. In that case then, something as simple as enlisting the expert services of Empire Pest Defense is one of only a few things you’d need to find YOUR paradise.
Go ahead and find YOUR paradise, and then work towards realising it…
