Bring me home


A classic question, revisited: what are the five items you must have on a deserted island?

A classic answer I guess:

  • A  boat with GPS, radio
  • Fuel
  • Fresh drinking water
  • Food
  • Sun screen

I obviously chose these items because I’ll try to get out of the deserted island as soon as possible and start the trip to go home. I can’t imagine myself playing Robinson Crusoe. I’ll be dead in no notice. With my set of items at least I can try to escape. I enjoy being alone for a while and I hate being in places packed with people, but I would never get lost in a deserted island no matter what wonderful items can have with me. I need my family. My ordinary life. So I definitely would choose anything that would bring me back home.

  1. wow I’ve been some of the responses to this prompt and so many people thought about sunscreen. I do believe I’d probably die of infected sunburn. Sorry about the visual.


    • I was about to choose an umbrella instead, but definitely something to protect me from the sun 🙂

  4. Ya. i agree with you. home is where heart is. i would also want to come back asap. although wouldn’t mind some alone time away from this mad world 🙂


    • Away from this mad world…would be wonderful. But completely alone? Only for a short time. 🙂


      • i can spend a little more than a short time. get a little mad, and then maybe i will fit in this world a little better 🙂
