What people inspire you? I know flicking through social media too much isn’t a healthy pastime, but… as a desk-bound writer in rainy England, I love that Instagram can transport me to exotic places and teach me about brave people living adventurous lives different to my own.

Like the incredible Kimi Werner, a champion free-diving spearfisherwoman who lives in Hawaii. She can also hold her breath for four minutes 45 seconds at a time, fishes with nothing but a spear and a knife and once caught a 165-pound yellow fin tuna. That’s pretty much the same weight as my husband!

She grew up on a remote part of Maui and was taught how to freedive for her food by her father. These skills became a way of life which has become her profession. She’s now a speaker and activist – and star of her own show on National Geographic called Living Free.

After an underwater hunting expedition, she cracks open a cold beer, cleans and prepares her daily catch before turning them into delicious healthy dishes like fish tacos – before posting it all on Instagram.
