Chasing a tortoise(turtle) in Mediterranean Sea (Ayia Napa, Cyprus)

in #travel5 years ago (edited)


I start loving turtles since i was a kid when i recieved as a gift for one of my birthdays an aquarium with one small little turtle and since then i start respect them and care about them. Its a symbol of elegance, calm, slow, patience and beauty. Maybe thats why they live over 100 years easily for some species of turtles.

In Feng Shui this beauty have huge meaning, its one of the Four Celestial Guardians and represents the longevity, luck or career success and other important meanings. I recommend to search on google or checking the link below.

The sad/ironic part is this: even they live over 100 years and are on this planet over 200 millions years (we are a blink of an eye in time) somehow we, as a human race, we are close to estinguish them. We have the power to destroy everything its beautiful on this world.

Thats why i chased this beauty so much until i realize im too far from the beach and i need to go back, because we dont have many chances to see them as europeans in wilderness, their own habitats and i was so excited.

I have more videos with her taking some deep and i will upload them.

In case you wonder why the sky have that color, its not about my Go Pro, its because of a sand storm beeing at that time.
