Places of a Lifetime – Paradise Found (according to Gary)

         Paradise, of course, is a very personal thing. It seems that National Geographic defines paradise as an island, because almost all of the listed locations are islands. I have also chosen several islands because their mystique is undeniable, but I have also included other places which evoke the idea of perfection and tranquility (the magazine’s words are "beauty, serenity, and heavenly pleasure).
