I once worked at the North Pole and had the opportunity to go for a quick swim in the Arctic Ocean – the water was -4 degrees Celsius and we were only allowed to stay in for a minute. They told us not to put our heads under, but I have to admit I was curious and almost tried it. It was the coldest I’ve ever been, but it sure was refreshing.
