This would of been a good goal .. I had this wild idea of doing a message to my Dad who as far as I know lives overseas but then I got all concerned about littering the ocean and went off the idea .. my compromise will be to tie a message to a balloon and let it fly .. 4 months ago

There’s a river nearby and so I think I will throw it in there. In the bottle I am going to write:
”’A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.’
- William G.T. Shed”
It’s very simple and it’s not my message but I feel very close to it and love it so I want to share. Besides, how fitting a quote! :) 11 months ago
i had the opportunity to buy a message in a bottle kit whilst on hols in lanzarote… i really wanted to fulfill my desire but as it was plastic i considered it would be littering the ocean. so until i find a small glass bottle (that would break down over time and become one with sand) i will put this wish on the back burner. 14 months ago
I would love to do this with my boyfriend if we ever take a trip together to the ocean <3 15 months ago

I’ve found a series of inspirational examples from newspapers about messages in bottles being found – sometimes decades after they were sent – with people responding to the sender.
“British schoolkids’ message in a bottle found by Czech boy who learns English to send them a reply”
“Facebook user replies to message in a bottle – 30 years after it was sent”
“Message in a bottle found after 97 years sets new world record”
“Message in a bottle returned to owners family after 76-years”
And, finally, my personal favourite:
“Ashes-in-a-bottle widow grants husband’s wish to see the world”

There is a “message in a bottle” vodeo out there (via the teabutterfly blog on google’s blogger) about this!

Here they are, our bottled messages which we threw out in Tromso, Norway. :D 17 months ago
I washed out an old cider bottle yesterday. It’s glass and the cap was still in good condition (but I’ll reinforce it with superglue when the time comes to send my message)
Now, though, I’m wondering what the message should be? Should it be about me and asking the finder to get in touch? Or should I write something a bit more inspired?
