Against All Odds, Swimming Outdoors In The Midst of Winter

Piscine Molitor - Swimming in Winter

Against all odds, on Dec 3, 2016, when we paid a visit to the newly rebuilt Piscine Molitor swimming pool building, I wasn’t expecting to find anything else but a 4 star hotel and restaurant and bar. Little did I know that a real open-door pool was there, hidden in the background.

And I wasn’t expecting anyone to swim there either, in the open air, in freezing temperatures (0° celsius).

I was there with my favourite camera and lens.

These people were swimming outdoors and it was freezing out there!

Don’t ask me to mimic this guy, don’t even think about it, I need 5 layers in this kind of temperature.
