Beschreibungen

'Remarkable' Observer'A joy to read' Daily Telegraph'Soaringly beautiful' Sunday Times Magazine'Genuine and persuasive' GuardianAlexandra Heminsley thought she could swim. She really did. It may have been because she could run. It may have been because she wanted to swim; or perhaps because she only ever did ten minutes of breaststroke at a time. But, as she learned one day while flailing around in the sea, she really couldn’t. Believing that a life lived fully isn’t one with the most money earned, the most stuff bought or the most races won, but one with the most experiences, experienced the most fully, she decided to conquer her fear of the water. From the ignominy of getting into a wetsuit to the triumph of swimming from Kefalonia to Ithaca, in becoming a swimmer, Alexandra learns to appreciate her body and still her mind. As it turns out, the water is never as frightening once you're in, and really, everything is better when you remember to exhale.
I wanted to dive into water as I want to dive into life: filled with joy, curiosity and the knowledge that there may be dangers – but that they’re not daunting enough to make it not worth doing.All I needed to do was learn to swim.
