The story of “Toumbalin” is based on a true story that happened to my son Vangelis, a summer in Castellorizo. Vangelis until 8 was too much afraid of the water and could not enjoy swimming. One day, however, totally unexpected, he had to face the sea and live an adventure in the company of a caretta-caretta turtle. The story is about how a fear became stubbornness, how the contact with a turtle was treated, how liberation from fear became inspiration and gave birth to a fairy tale.
