    It's quiet and isolated

    In several emails, he mentioned a place he likes to go to think. He took me there once. It's quiet, isolated. I just hope I can find it again.
    I'm eager to lead an isolated life/existence.


    Does the isolated in the above two diverse samples convey the same idea? Thanks.

    Re: It's quiet and isolated

    yes, i think so.

    isolated means "to be away" or "to be on their own".

    it may be employed to a human being or a place.

    an island is isolated if it's far away from other piece of land or if it's too difficult for someone to get there.

    a person can feel isolated if their opinion is different from the rest of the group.

    Re: It's quiet and isolated

    An isolated place means a place separated or set apart from others; a remote and quiet place; a place of few people or activities.

    To lead an isolated life means to lead a life of solitude, a life separated from others; to live alone.
