A man living alone on an island like Robinson Crusoe for almost 20 years faces eviction from his castaway oasis


看过鲁宾逊漂流记吧,一个人在荒岛上自力更生,生存这么久是很难的。今天要讲的故事就是现实版的”鲁宾逊“了。

A man living alone on an island like Robinson Crusoe for almost 20 years faces eviction from his castaway oasis.

The Australian man has been living on tiny Restoration Island off the north-eastern coast of Australia since 1993 after the former high-flying Sydney businessman lost £6.5 million in the 1987 stock market crash.

Living off crabs and coconuts, and connected to solar-powered internet, David Glasheen has enjoyed a life of private tranquillity his dog Quasi, calling himself ‘the luckiest bloke in the world’.

一位在岛上生活了20年的现实版“鲁滨逊”David Glasheen即将被政府驱逐出岛。

David之前是悉尼的一位富商,在1987年的股票市场中损失了65万英镑,六年后的1993年,David独自开始了在澳大利亚东北部一座小岛的‘艰苦’生活。

他在岛上主要靠螃蟹和椰子果腹,而且还有通过太阳能电池连接的互联网。在宠物狗Quasi的陪伴下,David过着与世无争的平静生活,并自称是“世界上最幸运的家伙”。

Lonely in love: Using his solar-powered internet connection Glasheen tried internet dating to find his 'Girl Friday' to live with him, using a mannequin to publicise his plight but had no luck.

David曾经试图通过太阳能网络寻找以为‘女版星期五’作为助手,并通过一个女假人模特展示自己的困境,可是到头来却一无所获。

'Luckiest bloke in the world': Glasheen loves living on the island, catching fish and crabs, growing vegetables and brewing his own beer to survive.

“世界上最幸运的家伙”:Glasheen先生很喜欢住在岛上,捕捕鱼,抓抓螃蟹,种种蔬菜,甚至还能自己酿造啤酒。

Broke island lease: The government has ruled that Glasheen must vacate Restoration Island, a 1.52ha oasis, having failed to build tourist accommodation and fishing facilities, a condition of his lease

目前政府现在已经掌管了这个岛,Glasheen必须离开,不然政府就没法建旅游度假村和钓鱼设施。

Must vacate: The island's directors have been trying to evict Glasheen since 2000 and he says that he has 'no idea' what he will do if he has to move from the island he has been living on for almost 20 years

掌管这个岛屿的管理者从2000年开始就让Glasheen搬走,但是Glasheen一直说他如果离开这个生活了20年的岛,就不知道应该干些什么了。
