In 2010, Max Vredenburgh, 10, writes a letter in which he details the things he likes. Basic things for a boy of his age who only wants his future recipient to know a little more about him. " I like apples, I like the beach, my favorite color is blue, I like animals, I like cars, and I like space He writes. Max then promises anyone who reads and responds to his letter to say a little more about him. An anecdote for the moment quite banal if Max had not the idea to put this letter in a bottle and then throw it in the sea in the port of Rockport, with his dad.
An answer that the young Max has waited for almost ten years. He, who was eager to see someone respond to his written letter when he was younger, grew up well and is now a 19-year-old student. But what was his surprise when his parents told him that someone had finally answered his letter.
The young man told CNN channel not to remember this story when his dad sends him a picture of the letter of his now new French correspondent by SMS. The memories come back to Max: " I read the recipient's letter and my heart jumped Max commented.
A French correspondent
In his letter, Max learns that the bottle he had thrown into the sea 9 years ago was found by his correspondent on a beach in France, between Contis and Mimizan. Max's letter took 9 years and traveled nearly 6,000 kilometers to finally find the land.
By his own admission Max did not think anyone would be so kind as to answer him. The latter having expressly left his name and address for the recipient to return the device.
This letter written by a Frenchman / e first name G. Dubois, contains two pages written by the machine, as well as two cards so that Max can locate the distance that his letter has traveled over the years. Conscious of his response a little late, the recipient writes to Max: " Hi, I found your message in a bottle on October 10, 2019 on a beach in France, between Contis and Mimizan (…) It took us nine years to travel the 6000 kilometers that separate us, before continuing, you grew a lot during all this time: from 10 to 19 years old ". A word that Max wanted to share on his Twitter account.
In his tweet, Max mentions his excitement and publishes a photo of his letter written when he was younger. A story that has obviously pleased users who have shared this tweet more than 130 000 times.
Max now plans to contact his recipient to thank him. " Something like that just will not happen for the rest of my life He said in order to seize his chance.
