In 1989 Mauro Morandi decided to take a little break from work and go yachting. He bought an inexpensive catamaran boat and went on a trip to Polynesia. Very soon the boat's engine broke down, and a short vacation became a new way of life: Mauro spent the next 30 years on a deserted island.

Budelli Island is part of a large archipelago, and the place is not completely deserted for thousands of kilometers around it. But as if by irony of fate, Mauro's catamaran docked here, in a place where there was not a single person.

The first months were difficult, but after six months, the first ship arrived on the island and Mauro was able to repair the catamaran. The average stranded person would have set a course immediately and sailed back, but the Italian decided otherwise.

He did not return to the mainland, but instead made one short voyage to the central island of the archipelago and brought himself everything he needed.

"I thought I couldn't stand being alone. And then I started to enjoy it," Mauro said.

Now Mauro allows his friends to come to the island, and he even has satellite Internet and a telephone. Maybe sooner or later the man will change his mind and move to the mainland.
