A little London boy didn't have to wait long for the answer to his birthday wish of 'Where will my balloon end up?'

On Monday, 5-year-old Archie released a silver '5' shaped balloon into the air. It had a note taped on it asking that whoever would find it to reach out and contact them. 

A day later - a woman in the Netherlands, about 300 miles away, posted on Facebook that she had found Archie's balloon and wanted help locating the sender. 

The pair were eventually connected via social media and a little boy's wish has been fulfilled!
