I recently took my new-found swimming skills to the Maldives and also endeavoured to capture my triumphant splashing from the Indian Ocean with my drone camera. A drone camera I've had since November and never used or even opened. A drone I took to Australia and Southern Africa but was too scared to pare the plastic cap off.
