My first thought was of beach resorts in winter. Like Split. I spent 3 days there around Xmas 2003 and had a 50 room hotel to myself. Not to mention the promenade, the piazzas of the old town and the windy echoes of Diocletian.
n. the eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that’s usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet—a school hallway in the evening, an unlit office on a weekend, vacant fairgrounds—an emotional afterimage that makes it seem not just empty but hyper-empty, with a total population in the negative, who are so conspicuously absent they glow like neon signs.
