How to use travel to face your fears

@ VOL 2 ON MAR 14, 2017

Liz Carlson - I travel a lot and I’ve got a lot of fears. How does that work? As a professional travel blogger, I roam the world for a living. But instead of just taking pictures and telling stories, I use my adventures as an opportunity to challenge myself and overcome different fears while inspiring other people to do the same. 50 odd countries later, I’ve still got anxiety but now I also have learned many new things and have had quite a few screwups along the way.
