Bargain: buy a tropical island for 160,000 pound!

Have you ever dreamed of swapping your fast-paced life for a new start on an exotic island surrounded by the Caribbean sea? Now it's the right time to take the plunge and make that dream become reality. Ian Usher, the owner of a slice of paradise off the Costa Rican/ Panamanian coast, is selling off his island for £160,000 - which, these days, is probably half of what you would pay for a decent one-bedroom flat in London.

After his marriage broke down five years ago, Ian decided to get rid of everything he owned by selling it on ebay and, after travelling the world, bought the 98,000 square feet island. He settled there with his new Canadian partner and two kids, but not long ago they realised that they wanted to start travelling again: "I still have a long list of places I want to see, and I can't do that if I'm lounging in a hammock on the balcony sipping a margarita" he declared.

Now he's advertising the sale of the island on his website http://www.caribbeanlife4sale.com, and there's no doubt he will soon find a buyer for it. After all, who wouldn't jump at the chance to buy their very own tropical island at such a small price? Oh, and the deal includes a wooden house as well as few motor boats and canoes to move around the archipelago.

So, imagine how would it feel to wake up every morning surrounded by trees busting with fruits, by roaming chickens and unlimited supplies of seafood... Tempting, isn't it?
