My favourite dip:
Parliament Hill Lido

I grew up in Hong Kong where swimming is kind of a way of life, hardly surprising being an island. So I guess my love for swimming started there. It is one thing I really miss, living in London, although Brockwell Lido & Parliament Hill Lido are pretty wonderful. The benefits of chilly dipping are now widely recognised and I think it’s the best way to spend ones time (apart from hiking…)

You'll find Alex submerging himself in cold-water after completing one of his Vespucci Adventures - a series of well curated walks and hikes aimed at re-wilding urban dwellers. Check them out (@vespucci_adventures).
