If you could take three items to a desert island . . . in your new language

I would like you to say what 3 items you would take to a desert island but give your answer in your new language.

These items are for pleasure. You dont need items to survive (like something to make fire or a telephone) and there would be no signal anyway :P

However take the food you like as you are living on plants if not. :) Here is mine. (Portugues)

um) uma bola de futebal. Sempre adorei jogar futebol.

dois) uma batata. Você já assistiu 'The Martian'? Eu também adoro batatas

tres) um livro de arte. Arte é sempre bela.

Uno: Libros! (No puedo vivir sin libros! -Thomas Jefferson)

Dos: Una energia solar computadora

Tres: Conjunto de arte

Those would be my items. Does the last one (art set) count as one item, even though it has multiple items within it?

Thanks for the interesting discussion! :)

    ataaseq. Elektricitetip generatori (imaluunniit innaallagiap sarfaliuut), arlaatip elektriciteti pingortippaa.

    marluk. Mobiliga erinarsuutinik batteriimillu immiineq.

    pingasut. Nipilersuut - basguitari nipittortaallu tumerparpaalluunniit. Malunnartumik guitari kukkilagutinik tumerparpaallu katunik.

    Inuussutissaat aanngilakka, naasut iluaraakka. :)

    en. En elektricitet generator, eller noget at kan skabe elektricitet.

    to. Min mobiltelefon med sange og en telefon oplader.

    tre. En musikalsk instrument - en basguitar med en forstærker eller en trommesæt. Tydeligt ville guitaren være med plektre og trommesætte med stikker.

    Jeg ville bringe ikke mad, fordi jeg kan godt lide (at spise) planter og jeg kunne prøve at lave noget.

    1. An electricity generator, something that can create electricity (it's not really cheating...)
    2. My phone with music and a charger.
    3. An instrument - a bass with an amp or a drum kit. Obviously, the guitar would come with picks and the drums with sticks. I won't bring food because I like to eat plants and could try to cook something.

    Sure, it's not technically three things... but I could hide the smaller bits in my pockets (assuming clothes are allowed on the island) :)
