When reading about these words I keep seeing everyone say that they mean the same. However, I am wondering if there is some difference in connotations? My gut feeling is that the former is more about “getting there takes a long time”, while the former is just about the physical distance – am I right?
Also, while looking for an answer to this question, I found a review of some place and it started with this:
Nicht weit weg, und doch so weit entfernt.
What did the reviewer mean? Based on what I assumed above, my theory is that it is relatively easy to get there, but once you are there it feels calm and remote, is that right?
