I just have two of my favorite thing done in a same time same place today. Swimming and charity!

Every meter swim, 10 cents will be donated to WaterAid to provide better sanitation and clean water for those who lacks of clean water and safe sanitation. This campaign happened only one day, but they are having this once a year. They also have some target to accomplish.

An Unexpected Ice Dip… Breaking the Ice 2!

The other day, I was going for a walk with a friend, when we saw this breath taking sight of ice plates floating on the water… If you listen in the video, you’ll see that the noise that they make is actually quite loud! It kind of reminds me of the sound of sea shells on the beach 🙂 Except that we are in winter and it is pretty damn cold.

But anyway, looking at the water, I wondered how cold it really was… I mean, granted, it was about 0 degrees, but I also wondered how it would feel like to be amongst ice cubes floating 🙂

And then, I also realized that it was a while since my last blog post… 😀 So I had no choice but to jump in.

The toughest part was probably smiling in front of the camera while I was freezing my ass off 😀

As this was completely unplanned, I didn’t have a towel, sauna, warm clothes or anything like that… So we run back to my place as fast as we could to have a warm shower 😀

In the shower, I was giggling and smiling the whole time thinking about what a stupid thing I’d just done… 😛 But I was also kind of proud 😀
