Where in a sentence. Please have a look

I heard this sentence:

  • I’m looking for a place I might find some peace. Can you also say:

  • I’m looking for a place, where I might find some peace.

What do you say? @Arinker, @NearlyNapping, @Alan, @Anglophile, @Torsten

Thanks in advance.

When I read your first sentence, I thought that if I needed to explain it, I’d just throw in a “where”.
I think your second sentence is actually better, though I would drop the comma.

I agree that the second sentence is better, especially when written. The abbreviated sentence is casual and common. But the second one is better.

I also strongly agree that you should dump the comma. The comma implies that the first part can stand alone, which completely loses the intent of the sentence.

I’m looking for a place I might find some peace in. (Also acceptable but the second is preferable)
