Many thanks for the picture! http://www.visitpitcairn.pn
So, last night in a flurry of boredom on Google, I came across a small group of islands, that are a British overseas territory. The name of the group of islands is the Pitcairn islands. In a bid to raise the population census, they are looking for Great British citizens to occupy the island.
So far, many inquiries have been made – although only one person has agreed to move to the group of islands in the south pacific ocean. The overall population of Henderson island is just fifty six inhabitants, as compared to the one hundred and thirty seven inhabitants that lived on the island during the nineteen thirties.
The government of the islands provides land to all immigrants. Although you have to put in an application first. The land is plentiful and the weather always good. Temperatures as low as seventeen degrees centigrade in winter is hardly bone chilling, through the summers the temperatures vary between twenty and thirty degrees centigrade.
Henderson island is just two point three square miles. It is one of the most isolated places on earth, with a supplies ship being the only node of transport between the island and New Zealand. The ship only comes every three months with supplies and tourists and citizens who work abroad or who are seeking further education.
So, whats not to like, heck, they even have a bar, and a cafe and and sell alcohol and tobacco in the local government shop.
The island has two official languages the two being: English and Pitcarnese. The islanders follow the seven-day Adventist form of Christianity. The islands main source of income come through agriculture, honey production and arts and crafts. The estimated GDP for 2015 being eighty seven thousand New Zealand dollars.
This must capture the imagination of the child inside of everyone of us, and even the adult in all of us. It seems to be a good deal, frankly. So, would you move to Henderson island ? Tell me more in the comment section.
