What does an Adventure Diva conquering fear look like?

What does an Adventure Diva conquering fear look like? Kristina Paltén on a 1,144-mile journey of trust.

What does an Adventure Diva conquering fear look like? Kristina Paltén on a 1,144-mile journey of trust. The Swedish ultra-runner began her run through Iran on August 29th 2015. She was to become the first woman ever to cross Iran by foot.

Take a peek at the trailer for “Alone through Iran – 1144 miles of trust,” a documentary about Kristina Paltén, a lone Swedish woman, who wanted to challenge her own and others prejudices against Islam by running across Iran.

“I will tell people about the incredible kindness I have met.” — Kristina Paltén.

The Humbling Months

November 14, 2014 in by Sue Braiden

Instead of aching over winter, I want to embrace it this year as the humbling months; the season of sweaters and snuggles; a hibernation into good books, hot chocolate and sherpa throws; hearts softened by yuletide; and an invitation to reflect on the inevitable spring. When things are always the same, we lose appreciation for them. Change invites us to take stock in what we truly value in the things we have, and to be open to the gift of new things -- people, ideas, experiences and adventures -- so today I am happy for the snow.

Today I woke up from a 3-day slumber in the grips of a wicked, feverish flu and the world outside is changed. I walked out into the snow barefoot this morning, just because I could.
