“A human being can find in a vacation a greater boredom than in everyday life—a redoubled boredom, because it is made up of all the elements of happiness and distraction. The important point is the predestination of vacations to boredom, the bitter and triumphal foreboding that there’s no escaping this. How could we suppose that people were going to disavow their daily life and look for an alternative to it? On the contrary, they’ll make a destiny out of it.” — Jean Baudrillard, Fatal Strategies
