We’ve all dreamt of owning our own private island at some point or other – of having our own little paradise far away from the mundane world of work, sleep and chicken kievs which spew all their flavour out as soon as you pop them in the oven.
But it’s not actually possible, is it? To own and live on your own private island? How much would it cost to buy the island to start with? Far too much we’re thinking, and where would you get all your essentials from; your toothpaste, your toilet roll, your insolent chicken kievs?
Well, we’re not sure about the kievs, but it turns out that you don’t have to be a millionaire after all to buy your own private island. Or not to win one at least.
An Australian family have hit the headlines recently aftering decided to raffle off their island resort, the debt-free Kosrae Nautilis Resort Micronesia on the tropical island of Kosrae, to one lucky winner, and you can enter the draw from just $49.
