Yesterday I woke up with some fantastic news: An email titled “Found bottle”.

Maree and Paul took their grandchildren and the dog Poppy on a four wheel drive to Turakina Beach, which is on the West Coast of the North Island of New Zealand. There Paul found bottle number IK_0001 on top of a bunch of driftwood. The next day they went to a friends house to open the bottle with everyone. The photos show Paul and the kids with the bottle and Hamish reading out the letter to everyone. Thanks to Maree and Dianne for the quick contact and the photos.

The bottle travelled for 133 days and was found on the 20th on July, south of where Isa put it into the Tasman sea – which means it swam against the East Australia Current. A direct line on the map would sum up to about 112miles/180km, but who knows which way it swam.

How exciting !!! Stay tuned for updates.
Check the MAP to see where and when the bottle was thrown and found.

Diana and Oli went on a trip to the Victoria Falls in Sambia and Zimbabwe – and threw two bottles.

Number one – DS_0001 – went bungee jumping of the Victoria Falls bridge. After ensuring the police that “this is not a bomb” by explaining the project and reading out the letter they were kindly pointed to the best spot to throw the bottle. Turned out it is also a world famous 120m bungee jumping spot. Here the water of all falls comes together to than flow into the Zambezi. Many options for the bottle to swim from there.
