Swimming has led me on a number of adventures and many new experiences, over the past four years, however I had never anticipated that it would see me walking through London, at half past six on a Sunday morning. One thing I don’t do, is mornings! There also one another thing, I don’t do, but have wanted to try since I started my swimming journey in 2015, is open water swimming, aside from swimming in the sea, on holidays abroad. Only recently, I celebrated my birthday, by jumping off the back of boat, into the sea, in Cyprus. The Blue Lagoon to be precise! However, abroad, the sea is warmer and you can see what is below you.
