Since becoming the first mermaid to swim the length of the River Thames, I have totally fallen in love with wild swimming. It makes me feel wonderful and it's community is just full of utter dream boats. I've even been asked to be the Outdoor Swimming Society's first Swim Champ. (Err, cheeks flush a shade of pink.)

So, I'm doing a tour of Britain's best wild swim communities as I pedal 750 miles up to the inaugural Scottish Winter Swimming Championship in Taymouth Marina.

I haven't lived in one spot longer than 10 months in the last 15 years, and I often don't know where I'm sleeping the next month, but I'm always fortunate to have a roof over my head. And, whenever I do emerge from my voluntary cold dip I’m always able to get warm afterwards. Many people aren't so lucky. So please help me, help Crisis to end homelessness and donate here.

It was devastating. So, I decided to swim the length of the River Thames as a mermaid to show how we're choking our mermaids with plastic. . Read More »

Previous adventure

Walking the rabbit proof fence

Being stuck in Byron Bay with a broken leg, whilst backpacking in my early 20s, I had stacks of films and books for entertainment. One being Follow the Rabbit Proof Fence. The characters in the story helped me through a tough time I'd soon go through so I always wanted to return to Australia to retrace their journey. Read More »

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
