Sven Hagemeier kept his birthday going for almost two days by crossing between different time zones, on August 4, last year.
Over the course of 46 hours, Sven flew from Auckland (New Zealand), to Brisbane (Australia) and then to Honolulu (Hawaii), achieving a record for the longest birthday ever.
Sven’s elongated birthday celebrations beat the previous record set by Nargis Bhimji of Karachi, who celebrated her birthday for 35 hours 25 minutes by crossing time zones after flying from Karachi to Singapore and then to San Francisco back in June 1998.
The birthday-boy spent the majority of two days in an aeroplane enjoying plane food and working out how to stay comfortable on long-haul flights.
Sven’s extended-birthday highlight was landing in Hawaii at midnight, with the knowledge that he had successfully set the record.
This year, however, Sven celebrated his birthday in a low-key manner at home.
