Ex-millionaire Lived 20 Years on a Desert Island in Australia

22.06.2017

David Glashin, an Australian millionaire, lost all his fortune as a result of the financial crisis in 1987 and settled on a secluded small Restoration island. There he still lives, and does not intend to return to the mainland. His only companion is a dog, and he provides himself with everything necessary.

Once 73-year-old Glashin was the owner of almost $ 30 million. Now he is a real Robinson and a local celebrity: the island occasionally calls tourists, and once the actor Russell Crowe has visited the alone hero.

Once a year Glashin goes to the big earth. He buys canned goods, milk powder, spices and other things that cannot be obtained on the island. In addition, he remains an entrepreneur. Welded in his own brewery beer, he exchanges for fresh fish, negotiating with the passing ships crew. Electricity and communications on the island are provided by solar panels.

The ex-millionaire says that he is satisfied with his life and intends to stay on the island until the end of his days.
