Yesterday I received a really nice email and, with the author’s consent, I decided to publish it on the website because this is maybe the most beautiful part of sand collecting: the people…

“Hello, I’ve arrived to your website accidentaly, but I’m really excited after dive into all the beautiful information you present in. I’m a sailor, and I use to sail all around the world since several years ago, for the yacht industry. Now, I’m in the north of  Unites States in another long trip in the way back to home, Spain. I have a sister biologist that collects shells from everywhere and because my plural visit to different places, I’m one of her providers. But knowing the existence of people that collect sand, and finding it a beauty activity, I proposed to her start this new collection, and since then, I’m her main provider. But looking at how you work with this world, I’m seriously decided to start my own collection as well. It’s a shame, I’ve been travelling last years from Antartica to all the archipelagos of south Pacific, north atlantic or my trips to the Himalaya mountains, or Patagonia in my free time and I could have had good samples of sand from this areas. So you gave me reasons to start with a new hobby driven by your gentle advices and information. This email is to send you my gratitude for your effort to communicate  your passion. Many thanks, E.M.”
