One year ago I closed the door to my apartment in Stockholm. I had no idea how long I was going to be away, what was going to happen or what I was going to experience. Lucky me! Sometimes not knowing is pretty good.
I have been reaching two Poles, travelled through 15 countries, sailed over the Ice Sea to Antarctica. I have fought on muddy roads, bitten by dogs, chased by black bears, inspected by polar bears, swimming in the Arctic, fainting in the desert and sleeping in the jungle.
Today I’m in Bolivia and I am tired after broken ribs, frostbites, frozen toes, heat stroke, rabies shots, wounded knees and snow blindness. But I am happy. I am living my dream and I have made it this far. Now I have Argentina left and then the Greenland crossing.
So who am I today? Are we the same person after taking a risk? I would say that we are bigger, wiser and more experienced. To take a risk and to step outside the Comfort Zone is Evolution. We develop as human beings. We are where we are today in evolution not because of all the right choices we took but because of all the risks we have taken over the years.
Everything is Possible, the Impossible just takes more time!
