Places To Go, Places To Swim, Places To Save

If there is any group of people on this Earth who understand the beauty, power and allure of the open water, it is individuals in the open water swimming community.

Gaute Hogh published a book called 100 Places to Go Before They Disappear. The global open water swimming community might want to add these locations to their travel schedule. “The whole purpose of this book was to show my children the effects of climate change. People usually show someone suffering and I wanted to show the positive side of it.

If we don’t do anything, we’ll lose some of these beautiful places. One of my missions with the book is to show teenagers, if you don’t turn off the water or turn down the heat, these places will disappear. They may say, ‘Why should I do this?’ But if I show them these pictures, they start to see it another way
