When people hear about my trips the #1 most frequent question is, "Aren't you scared?"
"Well...yeah," I reply. "But it's the kind of fear that you get when you go away to college, or get married...or divorced, or interview for a new job. You know you have to do it, want to do it, and will be better for it."
The Fear Factor will be a discussion and a collection of stories of travelers who overcame their fear, whether it was a fear of going on the trip in the first place, or a fear of passing through a certain country, or a fear of getting back on a bike after a crash.
If you have a story that relates to travel and fear, share it in the Comments section below, or send me an email. I look forward to hearing about your experiences!
