I love remote places, my husband does not, I’m from Paris and am very pleased to live now in the country, my husband is from a smal town in Normandy and pleased to travel in big towns. He’s not fond of sitting.
That’s also why i like to sit alone, to be far from civilization. Problem in GB -where I sat in a huge home in Costwolds, a few miles from the village- is I miss pubs if i can’t go there on foot.
Once I applied to a sit the owners said remote in mountains (in France), they liked my answer and said they were declining only because they were frightened I would face problems being alone.
I answered I was not the scared woman type, they finally came back to me, accepting my application (but in between I had decided to sit somewhere else !)
I 'm anticipating accidents, as i fall very often (due to an accident to my knee and heavy surgery) and stairs in a sit in south east lately were quite hard to climb. The village was empty, so Iknew I had to be very cautious.
I don’t carry an emergency button around my neck so far !! When I need it, I will stop sitting…
Falling may happen everywhere. @Amparo is right, you may fall in Paris and die alone if nobody hears you scream, if your mobile is not with you, or close; If nobody is expecting your call.
I wanted to go to Costa rica (a home in the jungle with a cat and a dog) once but to be honest, I was scared to be biten by venimous spiders or snakes, and being alone could have been difficult if nobody could drive me to a hospital… So i dreamt for a few hours but did not apply. Rather stupid if you can’t cope.
In a remote place, you only need not to be scared by solitude. What i like. If you look after a dog, you feel totally safe (even if he’s not a guard dog) as he barks. Cats don’t warn you somebody is coming. But if somebody is coming nasty (ev erywhere in the world, not only in remote places) are you able to react in a clever way (we don’t carry guns in Europe)
