This man traveled through time

A man has received a Guinness World Record for having the longest birthday ever. You need to read this.


Sven Hagemeier kept his 26th birthday going for 46 hours by playing an exhausting (and costly!) little game with time zones.

The German flew from Auckland, New Zealand to Brisbane, Australia, before then travelling backwards in time across the International Date Line to Hawaii.

He beat the previous World Record for the 'Longest Birthday' which was 35 hours and 25 minutes.

During his travels against time, Sven took time out for a short tour of Auckland with a helpful taxi driver.

Sven says, "You'll get help wherever you are in this world." 

Would you attempt to beat this record if you had the means?

If you were to be given a chance to break one Guinness World Record which one would it be?
