Sasha made arrangements with his neighbor (known as Mr. Wayne) and they met to bottle water.
Three years after that date, a couple found a message while walking on the beach Northern Ireland, Ciaran Maron and Rita Simmonds saw a unique possibility in that moment.
“We knew anyway we had a message in a bottle and we were really excited (…) on a magical journey.” , announced the couple.
After this both started looking for the author of the message. Through a social network they reached out to Sasha’s father, Vlad Yonyak.
“It’s great to hear that the bottle has arrived in Ireland,” said the boy’s father.
Sasha is now 14 years old, however, her neighbor Mr. Wayne died in 2021 and could not see the fate that Sandesh took across the ocean.
“This bottle just reflects the happy life and good times spent with them,” commented Vlad.
