 The couple, who have two kids, are completely self-sufficient,  growing their own crops in greenhouses.  They are also off the grid.

Solar panels are used for electricity and for water they collect the rain and use local, natural resources.

It’s basically a man-made floating farm. Tourists are even welcome to visit.

Going on Bear Grylls, The Island, would be a piece of cake for these guys.
