There are many types of phobia- of height, enclosure, water/river, etc
But I noticed that some people have this uncommon phobia.
Either of a new place or as a result of another prevalent phobia such as claustrophobia (fear of enclosure).
The best acronym for fear was that given by Joyce Meyer. She described fear as: F– false E– evidence A– appearing R– real
Fear can really become your master if you give it chance. It will want to take over your entire life.
But one best antidote to fear is to “walk through your fear!”
For instance my fear of drowning made me desire to learn how to swim as I figured out how to walk through it.
Now let’s look at why many fear to take advantage of Traveling as a way to spice up life, exhilarate and rejuvenate for better performance in the midst of uncertainty as we are faced in our time.
The first thing people fear when the thought to travel especially to a place they have never been before is how to cope?
How to cope with what? With everything when they get there.
Things they worry about include:
Before engaging in any travel venture please ensure that you have made adequate financial provisions for it. This can mess up your joy at your destination if you fail to take control of all the cost indices. Starting from the fares, accommodations, feeding, transportation and a little money for eventuality. In as much as to travel is good but do not engage in a Rio with insufficient fund and planning.
CURRENCY AT DESTINATION
Every country has their currency. Check what the currency of any country you wish to visit is. US dollar are accepted in most countries, and Euro is accepted in most European countries. But knowing that every country has a currency, it’s safe to buy the currency of
any country as you come into that country. But in a small amount instead but again. Note that any left over of local currency can be traded back into the currency of your choice.
If you are a local and domesticated person like me, or if you have special food need, also like me (my meal is a gluten-free food), you will not move an inch due to how to solve your food need.
But look at how I handle my feeding matter.
First, I take some precooked (roasted/ dried food such as nuts) but no fresh food if you are Traveling out of your country because many countries barn live food and vegetables into their countries. depending on your likes about food will determine the type of
restaurants you will visit.
For example, I like a lo if vegetables and protein in my meal. I can adapt to Chinese restaurant meals. Someone very spicy with food will be attracted to Indian restaurants.
However, there are couple of eatery shops to make do with. Just enter into anyone available in the city:country that you visited and look through their menu.
Check out with another eatery shop if you do not like that
List of few eatery shops include: Pandai, Red Lobstar, Red chilli, KFC, Burger King, Papa John, Etc
Once you arrive any country or city depending on your mode of transportation- land, water or air, you are dropped at either the border or airport or bus stop. You may need a local transportation to your hotel or destination.
This should not be a problem.
If you have arrived by air, then buy small local currency from the airport or using your debit/credit card go to any available atm machine to collect some local currency for your transportation within the city.
If possible collect the city map from the airport or seaport.
There are local taxis or other transportation companies such as Uber, Lift, Bolt etc you may use the services of any of these from the port to your hotel or destination.
If any one should dread traveling to a country with different language from his/hers, I do!
But one thing is clear, most countries speak English in addition to their local Language. There is nothing wrong in learning different languages but do not worry about this if it does not come handy to you. But believe me you are not alone in this hence countries ensure they have English speaking representatives to help their visitors.
Language barrier should not stop anyone from traveling.
There is always a security concern with every place in the world. The different is that some areas are high risk while others have low risk. Make your research online when booking a hotel in any country to avoid choosing a very high unsecured area.
However, you must remember to be security conscious at all times. Carry your valuables in a very concealed manner. Do not leave your money or valuables in a hotel room.
Most hotels have a safe in the rooms. Pls make use of the safe to secure your valuables.
Fear do to another prevalent fear condition such as claustrophobia. People who are claustrophobic may not be able to use the aircraft to travel. They are overly concerned about being trapped. They feel that they have lost their personal freedom once they are in
any small enclosure- or any place with doors, windows or possibility of being locked.
One of the ways to ameliorate this condition is to walk through every of the fears. Persist by staying put and keep telling yourself that you are fine and that there are no causes for alarm. Speak this to yourselves many times as much as the fear is being triggered.
But do not withdraw from the action triggering fear.
Please, if the situation is serious, wherein, you have done everything yet you are still not able to overcome it, I suggest you leave that activity for another time.
Remember that in such cases, you are the only one that can get yourself out of it, others may offer you ideas that may be of help, please try every idea including those suggested here with caution for claustrophobia if not well handled can be dangerous to health.
Till next time…..
