A 86 year old man and his private island in the Seychelles

Former British newspaper editor, Brendon Grimshaw bought an island in the Seychelles in 1962 and has lived there permanently since 1972.  He’s the only person living on the island and has planted over 16,000 trees and reintroduced giant tortoises to the island.  A new documentary called A Grain of Sand, follows his struggle to stave of development and ultimately have the island declared a national park by the Seychelles government. Surprisingly, after living alone on an island all these years, he seems pretty normal! via Boing Boing
