His own mind. Blissfully unaware of the world around him.

We have lake island’s in the country and backwaters. April’s archipelago sounds nice. :)

A bathroom with a door that closes and locks, and a frosted window so no-one can see just what he’s doing in there.

A private island is a miserable thing. It means you think you own something that cannot be owned. The poor man knows he cannot own anything as he looks up at the entire night sky crowded with stars.

Same as @KNOWITALL. We have little islands all over the lakes and waterways here. I would canoe out and camp on them as a teenager.

A display room or a display cabinet or a display table of his or her precious collectibles.

A clean and (mostly) undiscovered public bathroom. A single preferably.

I’ve had this irrational fear of ending up homeless since I was a kid. To combat this, I started cataloging (in my head) all the best, cleanest, most private public bathrooms in the area.

I reasoned that, even if I ended up homeless, I’d have a bunch of places to use to stay clean and such.

I’ve heard of a pre-homeless strategy for that: use your last $ to buy a 1 year membership at a gym. That gets you free, clean showers and toilets for a year.
