Re: Sailing off to live on a deserted island
In 2011 I hired a boat with a group of friends to spend a week on an uninhabited island off the coast of Jahor province, Malaysia. We had a whale of a good time together
Funny thing is, our Malay friends were much better prepared for the experience. Within minutes they all had machetes in their hands, chopping the cane, assembling shelters, tying up canopies for shelter. We Westerners were pretty much useless.
Our biggest limiting factor on that island was the lack of fresh water. We had to bring that with us. No internet or phone either, but that was actually a relief.
Can't imagine spending more than a week or so on island like that, though.
