I'm sure there are several on TP who feel the way you do - you just have to give a bit of time to respond. I'm likin' the desert island approach myself these days.

You can check out my profile if you'd like.

It's a romantic idea. One that's easier said than done these days. Having said that I've met quite a few people out there looking for something.

Mainly people in their 30-40's though. The younger people talk the talk, but still stumble on the practicalities. Not that a few 40's haven't either.

I met a guy in India who joined our table one evening. He'd announced that after traveling India he was going off to Daramasala (sure I spelled that one wrong) to live with the monks and escape societies evils. An Australian at the table turned to him and asked how many days did he have left on his visa. The guy fumbled for his passport. Turned out he'd only have 3 weeks to escape society before bureaucracy would kick him out

Siberia, need a holiday tour visa (bar work permits etc.) There are a few remote places in the world you can disappear too. But you'd better pack a credit card, passport, visa, and a stash of cash somewhere too. The remoter it gets, the more vulnerable you become.

I would go with all my bases covered. Travel from a chair can seem a lot more practical than reality. We all gotta eat.

You'll be amazed by how much just getting out of the rigors of your own life will work for escapism, and some soul searching. Start easy, and it will come to you. Then venture out further.

Good luck on your voyage. It will come to you either way.
