Back in Oz, while recuperating from jetlag, I am reflecting on the past few weeks. We had three great swimtours - Lake Constance (Germany, Austria and Switzerland), Slovenia's lakes and rivers and our flagship, Italy's Lake Orta. Lakes Constance and Orta were gentle swimming while Slovenia was hard work with long swims - but still enjoyable. Along the way, there were some interesting tourist adventures in Hong Kong, Ljubljana, Venice, Germany and the UK (and Thailand and Spain for others) as well as some notable extra swimming spots to sample in the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Swimming Pool in Hong Kong, Lake Zürich and the River Limmat in Zürich, a fabulous stainless steel swimming pool in the smallish German town of Singen, one of the best swimming centres I have seen in Ljubljana and, finally, a great swimming centre in Shakespeare country, Stratford-Upon-Avon in the UK.
There will be a full report posted under the 'Swimtours' tag on this website soon but, in the meantime, here are a few pics.
Let me know if you would like to come in 2018.
