- Ibiza, boot, ticket, trolley, crown
- How was Ms. Ashwani connected to all these?
Winner - The
final question was received on 22 February from FP, who gave the following
"I think Ms. Ashwani, lived someplace in Europe
where a shopping cart is a trolley and a car trunk is the
boot. She was driving down the street on her way somewhere,
when she spotted the abandoned trolley. She tossed the trolley into
the boot and drove to a store. At the store, Ms. Ashwani returned the
trolley and claimed the crown coin from the security lock. She then
took the lucky crown and bought a lottery ticket, which turned out to
be a winner. Her prize was a trip to Ibiza. Hows that?"

official version of The Ibiza Mystery
Ms. Ashwani, a British national, was driving her car
along Paldiski Street in Tallinn, Estonian. On the side of the road
she spotted an abandoned shopping trolley ("shopping cart"
in American English). She pulled over and put the trolley in the boot
("trunk" in American English) of her car, and drove to the
nearby Primo grocery store. She returned the trolley to the store, and
removed the crown (or kroon in Estonian) coin from the security lock
on the trolley (a mechanism used in Europe to prevent trolley abandonment).
She then used the coin to buy a lottery ticket for a trip to Ibiza.
