Is this the strangest commute ever?

The daily commute is more hated than the daily grind. Sweaty train carriages, delayed tubes and congested buses rile us up so much that by the time we get to work we’re already fed up and furious.

So, it’s not surprising then that many employees are looking to increasingly bizarre methods of travel. Benjamin David, a worker from Munich, Germany, has taken the internet by storm after it emerged that he swims two kilometres to work every day, down the Isar River. Bored by his regular bus commute, he takes to the river in his trunks and rubber sandals to protect his feet. It’s assumed he carries his work clothes in a waterproof bag.
