After my successful second Channel swim (non-wetsuit!) on Sept 3rd (16 h 50) – 25 years after my first one –
and some rest we made it from Calais via Brussels to Aachen (arrived Monday, 6th, afternoon) – about 300 km or more biking (some detours) and 2 marathons and are safe and happy back home in Heidelberg. It was easier than expected (or feared) but took a bit longer for several reasons. A great event, though, and a great training experience for the final big one before my 60th birthday, hopefully!
Here some impressions:
Many thanks are also going to my friends at the WAVES Restaurant in Heidelberg for their superb vegetarian food, and to Europcar Heidelberg, Mr. Plitzko, wo was extremely helpful again in providing us with a support van.

Congratulations!! A huge achievement, well done.
May I ask what’s the ‘final big one’ or is that under wraps?!!
Thanks Lisa – the big one is still Dover-Heidelberg – 2ways etc. are not my business 🙂
And nice toes, too! 😉
Congratulations!!! What an amazing athlete you are, an inspiration to all.
When I wear my pink crocs and eat hazelnuts, I think of you in Dover 2008.
Hey Carrol, thanks so much! Hope you are well and still planning to come back? Let me know, I might hop over for a couple of days or even to be on the boat! I think I am still not quite finished with the Channel for this incarnation!
Congratulations, Vasanti! We were all very inspired to see the story and photos of your epic feat. What’s next for you?
Financial recovery 🙂
