The Big Issue has just published A Life Aquatic, a light yarn about a notion: to swim every day for a year. Outdoors.
Here’s an extract: But trouble lay ahead. Trouble called mountains. Trouble called a river that was too shallow and too dirty. Trouble called a waterfall that was too deep and too rocky. And trouble called our cheap hotel.
The full story is in the Australian edition of The Big Issue (#451, 7-20 Feb 2014, Miss Piggy on the cover). Just $6 from your local Big Issue vendor.
