Fear of the unknown Fear of the unknown is acommon psychological mentality that everyone has.
We fear what we do not knowand we fear the unexpected, let alone a completely new place Having an itinerary [set up] helps me to feel comfortable about where I'm going before I'm even therebecause I know where I will be staying at I know what I'll be doing and I knowthat I've already done the research and also physically asking for help whileyou're in the new country or city is so big because you're not alone! Welleven if you're not solo traveling or if you are solo traveling, always ask for help.
Communication is key! Now that you've done the research and you're on the spotand you don't know what to do ask for help and knowing that you could do thiscould ease your anxiety before you travel.

I will talk more about myfear of flying and my own personal experiences because it can be very scarygetting sick from traveling has always been a risk and not just now.
I'vealways taken the right precautions because I don't want to get sick whenI'm traveling and when you're on the plane you are susceptible to so manygerms and when you're traveling you are touching things in general you want to be healthy andyou want to take the correct precautionary steps to prevent getting sick beforeyour trip during your trip and after your trip and that is just a generallifestyle tip In my Japan vlog series you will see me solo traveling to Japanduring the outbreak of coronavirus Now I don't talk too much about it in the vlogs because I'm still going through my experiences but I would just want you toknow to do your proper research- even before this outbreak happened sanitationand staying healthy was always so important to me because it's just such ahuge part of traveling and staying fit and healthy so you can travel withoutworry.
Coronavirus- fear of disease- fear of the coronavirus that everyone istalking about today- we are all scared of it and that's a fact and thecorona virus has already stopped many people from traveling and will continueto do so even before the outbreak I was very careful with my sanitation habitsbecause I know it could affect my trip greatly.
Youshould always be careful with your health.
You should always always not justnow but in the future as well to take the proper sanitation steps toensure you have a safe and healthy travel experience so from with what wetalked about such as fear being far away from home, fear of loneliness, fear of theunknown, and fear of accidents all of these things are so real and thecoronavirus is no exception and is one of these fears but just know that itis one of these things that is part of our life my main thing is don'tlet fear overtake your dreams of traveling far of going to your dreamcity to go to Paris to go to London go to Asia go to Japando your research! Don't forget, when I went to Japan I didn't know what wasgoing on because it was happening as I was going there it was happening after Iwas there to not fear for what's going on in the headline or what someone tellsyou or what someone says or let negative things affect how you feel about yourdestination or about your planning Stay tuned and also keep up with my Japan blogs-link below and also in my Japan playlist so you can see me solo traveling toJapan and all of this happened during the corona virus outbreak and if I didn'ttell you this, you probably wouldn't even know because I didn't let it get to meand I tried to have fun and I made the trip happen.
