Adventure and Inspiration

adventure stories

Welcome to the adventure stories page, an evolving resource library of stories and movies that can initiate more fun, wisdom and learning in your life.

Do you have a few favourite stories and movies? And as you remember them right now, is there a little smile playing across you lips as the scenes and pictures flash through your mind? I thought so.

Once upon a time far, far away, you heard or saw your first few favourite stories. You know the ones I am talking about, the dog-eared and battered books and the scratched and chipped DVDs. Books and DVDs that ended up looking like veteran gladiators of the Roman Empire.

These stories and movies are so filled with your love and excitement that they have a life of their own. There were other stories, but these childhood stories and movies were yours.



The Impact of Movies and
Modern Parables on Your Life


  • To what extent have childhood stories or movies shaped your life?

  • How many times have you imagined yourself as the lead character?

  • Would you like to become a swash-buckling pirate, a glorious empress or embark on a grand adventure?



Online Stories of Adventure

The adventure stories on this page are here to inspire you to grow, to laugh and to learn. Inspiration may descend and encourage you to contribute some stories of your own. There are little pockets of magic in all of them. They are our gift to you, oh happy finder. May they assist you to turn your entire life into an adventure that is even better than a happily ever after.
