About the Book

If you're an armchair traveler, a package deal junkie, or a cruise voyager and you don't think you have the guts for adventure travel, you're in for a surprise. Adventure travel is not only for the young, the fit, and the fearless!

The Fearful Traveler's Companion is a collection of travel stories, tips, and anecdotes that address those fears that have kept "smarter" people at home. Whether you're afraid of plane crashes or riding escalators, no fear is too great or too trivial to be scrutinized with a dose of compassion and humor.

Travel can be scary business. Even the most seasoned travelers have their personal bêtes noires: aversions to germs, getting caught in a crowd, or even eating alone in a restaurant. But author Chris Card Fuller wants to squash the myth of the fearless traveler. Her refreshing travel therapy submits that each new trip helps you to confront your fears head-on, strengthening your resolve and confidence for even more outlandish destinations!
