Your travel fears summed up in 7 revealing pics

2014-06-24 14:19
Each week the twitter verse comes together to talk travel – with topics ranging from the important and useful, all the way to the downright ghastly - especially this week's topic. 

The chat ventured into the domain of Travel Terrors... (cue squeaking door and ghoulish laugh).

But seriously. One thing's for sure, there are a bunch of fearless people dotted across the globe, as well as a few who are still grappling with the odd phobia or two - but they’re certainly not letting it stop them from broadening their horizons through travel.

Travel terrors range from the fear of flying (Pteromerhanophobia as a smarty pants would say), forgetting or losing your passport, all the way through to encountering a few expected furry critters.

We’ve rounded up a few of our favourite tweets. Take a look – BUT BE WARNED - Some of these will give you the heebie-jeebies, especially the pics, but you have to love the twisted humour that went along with it.

Be sure to join the next #TTOT - Here's how it works:

Every Tuesday at 11:30 (SA time), the chat is run by a few of the world's top travel bloggers, such as Travel DudesRoni Weiss and Runaway Juno, and aimed at getting travellers from all over the world to share their experiences.

Next topic "Business travel" via @roniweiss. Please add your questions on the  TTOT Facebook Page. 

You'd be better off joining the chat via tweetdeck or hootsuite so you can following the discussion better.

It takes the form of five different questions related to the topic and will be numbered Q1 - Q5, with a couple of minutes for responses to each. In order to respond to a specific question you will start your answer with A1, 2, 3, 4 or 5, of course including #TTOT so you're included in the stream.  Come follow News24Travel on Twitter, so we can chat with you too!
