A man has an unusual way of commuting to work that beats the rush-hour traffic every time.
Benjamin David, 40, from Munich, regularly swims two kilometres down the river Isar from his apartment in Baldeplatz to his place of work, the Metro Online has reported.
The male became fed up with the conventional methods of travelling and after watching the river flow past his home, which he realised would take him all the way to work, he decided to alternate his route.
David first tried out his idea two years ago, and he believes it was the best decision he has ever made as his journey leaves him feeling "relaxed and refreshing".
David ensure his electrical equipment stays dry as he zips up his laptop, suit, mobile phone, and other possessions in a waterproof bag that also acts as a buoyancy aid, also known as a Wickelfisch, made in Switzerland.
A Chinese water monster has been caught on camera by horrified witnesses.
Mobile phone footage of a shadowy shape that appears to be lifting its head out of the water in a lake in China has gone viral.
And the clip, which has been obtained by The Sun Online, has set tongues wagging. The country in East Asia have their own Chinese Loch Ness monster, dubbed the Chinese Nessie.
In the video, which was shot in Luoping County in China's south-western Yunnan Province, villagers can be heard gasping and screaming in the background as the unidentified animal causes ripples and disappears into the water.
The onlookers suspect that a much larger body was attached to the visible head they caught a glimpse of.
And locals are said to be lining the edge of the lake, eager to catch another glimpse of the suspected monster, while officials are reportedly looking into the situation.
