You aren’t wrong. Although I do believe place/environment can play a big part in your experience when you finally are surrounded by the right people.
In my case, I am not married to the idea of an Indonesian getaway. It intrigues me only because that’s where I’ve been living fit the past few years. Rather, it’s the philosophy of providing a getaway for like-minded people and friends which turns me on.
I suppose that’s why I think they would never visit frequently enough, even if I did build it.
