'It doesn't matter what it is. Green sea, a dark lake, a quietly meandering river. If it's warm outside and there's an easy way into the water, I want to get in. My obsession began at London's Hampstead Mixed Pond six summers ago....'       Joe Minihane, CNN Travel, August 2016

Floating charts journalist Joe Minihane’s attempt to swim the breadth of the countryside, immersing himself in fresh water while coming to terms with something beyond the swimming itself. 
Taking inspiration from Waterlog, Roger Deakin’s seminal account of wild swimming, Joe set himself the goal of swimming in every river, lake, lido and bay which Deakin visited. These excursions into wild swimming also served as a way of soothing the disquiet that life had brought him. From Hampstead to Yorkshire, from Dorset to Jura, from the Isles of Scilly to Wales, Joe swims to explore, to forget, to find the path back to happiness, and in the water under an open sky he finally begins to find his peace. Joe will be in conversation with Guardian swimming columnist JennyLandreth.
