I was in London for a week and I knew someone who had a boathouse along the river Thames. It’s one of the branches of the bigger Thames that goes through central London so its safe to swim in – no disease or possibility of death. It was a pretty popular area as countless boats went past. We went on paddle boards and ended up swimming – I had to be pushed in because it was so cold.
Where: Maidenhead, England, United Kingdom.
