John Morrissey was in the midst hiking Australia’s 250 kilometer Great South West Walk (that’s over 155 miles) when he discovered a bottle covered in barnacles and containing a small note on the southwestern shore near Portland, Victoria. Now, he’s asking for help locating the sender. Look at this thing!
The message appears to be written in Simplified Chinese, so any translations you can offer might help. I cannot read Chinese and have no idea if the Chinese text repeats the English text.
The writer’s name appears to be Shi Guan Yong. I have no idea what Chian means–could it be a town?
One thing’s for sure–John has not been able to find the author of this message in a bottle, but there’s a good chance we can if everyone helps spread the word!
Stay tuned–I’ll post an update if John and the author of this message in a bottle are able to make contact. And thanks for sharing!
