A celebration of swim travel

Get ready to embrace the travel and adventure opportunities in swimming, says Simon Griffiths

I chose my first career for the travel opportunities and worked in Guatemala and the Gambia building water supply systems. I then did a spell in finance that sent me briefly to New York.

I created Outdoor Swimmer in 2011 (initially as H2Open Magazine) as an outlet for my passion for swimming outdoors. I've been a swimmer and outdoor swimmer for as long as I remember. Swimming has made a huge difference to my life and I want to share its joys and benefits with as many people as possible. I am also the author of Swim Wild & Free: A Practical Guide to Swimming Outdoors 365 a Year and I provide one-to-one support to swimmers through Swim Mentoring.
