Ideally, when we imagine the unimaginable luxury in which the wealthy spend their time, we’re probably best served by gathering up a small, but friendly measure of revulsion, and being comfortable that when we’re afforded some opportunity we can do so.
Even if it doesn’t involve a private helicopter or a ship. Sure, we should all be happy for what we’re able to get . . . yada yada yada, but it’s human nature to be just a little bit green when you encounter someone who has the extra cash to live their life with a few more bells and whistles. They may not amount to serenity or happiness, but it seems that inner peace would be a little bit easier to focus on when you could do so from the cockpit of your own submarine.
Here are some of the craziest expectations, most popular locations, and insane toys that the rich think about when planning their vacations.
That Submarine Thing Is No Joke Either
Ships get all the politeness, but the real cutting edge in insanely crazy things you totally need is the “submersible yacht” from companies like Migaloo Submarines. The two-story design is 377-feet long and comes with a helipad, swimming pools, eight VIP suites, a private movie theater, and, of course, tons of ways to check out the sights below water.
They Use the Internet With Them Everywhere They Go
Some interviews with experts who cater to the ridiculously wealthy have indicated just how much effort goes into the planning stages of a rich person’s vacation. If somebody with unlimited supplies is headed to a tropical island that’s very remote for example, they might send a friend ahead of them to ensure the installation of an IT infrastructure so their phone and computer will work when they arrive.
