Paradise Bird

Paradise Bird... a beautiful name which I deem just fitting for a beautiful flower like this. But where is paradise?

To me, Paradise is Shangri-La, an imaginery destination written in the book "Lost Horizon" by James Hilton. Many have said that the legendary "Shangri-La" is in Lijiang, Yunnan province of China. Since reading the book for the first time when I was 15, I fell in love with travelling. Have been thinking about going to Lijiang but always back out the last minute. Why? Because I am afraid that "paradise" may not be like what I have imagined, and my life-long dream will be shattered! Such is the dilemma in life!
