Now here’s an idea that, upon first look, seems kooky. Vacation in prison. But, having lived in South Korea for many years, I know that work can take its toll on a person. The busy busy busy, go go go, workaholic lifestyle wears a person thin. Enter: Prison. Well, a place that apparently resembles prison.
Prison Inside Me: Providing Koreans peace and solitude in a cell
One only has to Google “prison hotel” to get prison vacation destination ideas.
Yes, I get it. But … what about self-restraint? (Unintentional play on words.) Book a simple place somewhere, without annoying people all over the damn place, vendors hungry for money, where peace and quiet are the norm. Buy a tent, go camping. Don’t bring your Winnebago. Not even your VW Westfalia. Just you and a tent.
Not the outdoorsy type? Go stay in a small prairie town hotel. Go to Cadillac, SK. Or Fort Smith, NT. Take a simple “cruise” on BC Ferries up the Inside Passage. But I guess all of these offer distraction after distraction, noise, people all over, and / or lack of solitude.
