I went on a treasure hunt in the blue-turquoise Aegean Sea.
Neither for diamonds, nor for gold coins left by the pirates.
I longed to bring with me a cream white shell to my home in the far north.
The one that might’ve been journeying for thousands of years and then settled in The Aegean Sea.
Through the crystal clear water, I searched among countless pebbles in purple and grey.
The sea sparkled in the sunlight, and the waves moved gently in the summer breeze.
No shells in sight.
But who were these lovely creatures circling around and caressing my tired feet?
Deep down in the water, the tiny fish were playing hide and seek.
Oh dear fish, have you seen a lonely cream white shell flowing through the waves? The one that longs for a home in the far north…
