34 and 35! I wrote a program to calculate this after reading the puzzle, thinking the answers would be much higher. Needless to say, I had fun solving it!

This is also true of
160, 161
167, 168
223, 224
293, 294
412, 413
419, 420
And many, many more

Another interesting finding is that the first occurrence where BOTH integers have a sum of digits that's divisible by 7 happens at (69999,70000) and not again until (159999, 160000)

In fact, in the first 1 million integers, there are 20411 sequential integer pairs that meet the criteria of the initial puzzle!

In the first BILLION integers? 20,408,136 sequential pairs meet the criteria!

This is such a great resource that you providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It is the old what goes around comes around routine.
