Somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean there are bottles floating with a message inside. The message is from me and asks the finder of any of these bottles to let me know where they find them. I have been doing this for years and only ever had 2 found ? 1 in Venezuela and the other in Thailand. These pictures are from the Island nation of Cape Verde, of the West coast of Africa. Before I travelled to Cape Verde I laminated sheets of bright coloured paper with my message and simply put them in empty water bottles. I removed any labels and added a small amount of sand as ballast. Then threw them as far out as I could. Last seen ? headed south. If you find one let me know!
