A freelance writer and all-round sports-enthusiast, Sharon is originally from Scotland and currently lives in Kuala Lumpur. In this issue she writes about her longest-ever open water swim in Bali; previously she has swum in waters around the world, from Glasgow to the Galapagos. En route, she has encountered whitetip reef sharks, hammerhead sharks and basking sharks. Each time she says she can’t help hearing the opening bars of the Jaws theme tune in her head. Thankfully none of these species are likely to attack. She has been stung by jellyfish many times but she has never allowed her husband to pee on her – much to his disappointment.
