In 1998, as part of a school project, 16-year-old Nicolas Morin wrote a letter and put it inside a plastic bottle along with a small Canadian flag. As the CBC reports, it read:
"Hello, my name is Nicolas Morin. I am a boy. I am 16 years old. I was born May 25, 1982. I speak French but I am learning English in school. I have a brother but no sister. My favourite hobby is basketball. My favourite food is pizza. I live in Roxton Falls, a town in Quebec. I hope to hear from you soon."
Let’s just point out those u’s are in there because: Canada. His teacher put that letter inside the bottle, along with several others into the water. Flash forward to 2014. While on the beach of Crozon, France, Lucien Sanquer found the bottle.
The two were able to able to catch up via Skype and discussed the possibility of one day meeting up.
