It’s like something out of a movie: a young man from Manchester, UK, writes a diary documenting half of his 22 months travelling around Asia and New Zealand, with the final entry on New Year’s Eve 1999, as we welcomed in the new Millennium.
Fast forward to fifteen years later, and this diary is handed in along with the keys of a Mighty Jackpot in Queenstown on May 7th 2015.
Between January 31st 1999 and December 31st 1999, he celebrated his birthday watching the Mount Everest Marathon on April 12th, kayaking Doubtful Sound and getting to know locals in Kaikoura, Auckland and Copland.
Here at THL HQ, we’re hooked- whatever happened to our mystery Manchester Man? We all like a happy ending, so using the powers of social media, we’re looking to reunite the leading man with his long lost diary and his precious memories.
Join in the hunt with this #mightybigmystery – let’s spread this story far and wide.
