Lives of Luxury: A Billionaire’s World

In the world of billionaires, money is no object and owning a helicopter or a 7000 euro purse is not unusual. Why would you deny yourself anything when you can have it all? With this mentality, the buying never stops and the purchases are ever more extravagant.

A Frenchman has created a new kind of champagne made with bits of gold- leaf in personalised bottles for those fortunate enough to acquire them. Then there is the ultimate billionaire’s fountain pen, encrusted with diamonds and costing more than a small apartment. Finally we take a peek at the auction where rich billionaires battle it out to win the “truffle of the year” a rare mushroom considered to be a delicacy for the elite.

With such crazy “needs” and no time to tend to them, billionaires often have personnel on hand to run their errands. A weekend getaway to Paris can be planned and organised for you right down to private transport on a boat recommended by none other than Leonardo Dicaprio. These people are there to meet your every demand and in record time.

An insight into the lives of those who already have it all but constantly want more, an escape to a world where the word “recession” means nothing at all.
