  • For a place, it relates to an island or any physically isolated place distant and inaccessible without sufficient means of transport. For example, surrounded by water, mountains, or desert.
  • It may also mean a person, group of people, or a community that is only concerned with their limited way of life and not at all interested in new ideas or other cultures.
