Better than Donsol?

Apparently, yes. And obviously much closer and cheaper.

I did it for a day and it was hard.

Imagine you forgot ANYTHING
your like shoot now what¿


You never realize how Needy you are intill you can't get something.

I think it's a GREAT TRIP
just for the people who can handle it.



I actually tend to find the opposite most of the time. Pack all this stuff and once you get to places like that you realize how little you really need.

@Something Fishy , what are your thoughts on spending shabbos here? Too complicated?

My first reaction is that it is indeed too complicated. There are a number of things which are a total-non issue during the week, but are deal-breakers on Shabbos. For example, you need to flip a switch to start an electric pump to flush the toilet. Perfectly fine on a Wednesday; not so much on Shabbos.

I also wonder what the halacha for carrying would be on such an island. Even if you don't plan on carrying outside, the bedrooms are technically in a different building than the rest of the house.

I may be wrong, but I think you can carry throughout the island.

How is it apparent? After all, Donsol is considered the whale shark capital of the world.
Much closer obviously depends on your origin

Because of course we can reach a consensus in a eruv discussion in a random TR thread.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

How does that link apply to this island?
Might not but the concept of a natural eruv exists

The sea can be the boundary ala Teveria
and you can see the whole island from one spot

see this for an interesting discussion https://www.dafdigest.org/eruvin/Eruvin%20087.pdf
i think we can now move this to the halacha thread

Why would you think that a beach on an island in the ocean is not maale sirton?

I never would've asked the question had I foreseen this outcome 🙄
