When it comes to dealing with travel fears, there is mostly one thing that you can do.
It is to travel.
As with anything, overcoming a fear usually involves with engaging with the fear directly.
And how you do one thing, is how you do everything. This is why I love to use travel as my personal transformation too.
Each day I am getting more and more confident, in the following areas. I can say I am a lot different than from where I started off, 4 years ago.

I had to face a lot of fears when I started travelling. I am also continuously facing these one by one.
Hopefully you can relate to me in some ways.
