Getting on the Ropeway in Hakone to see Mount Fuji in all its conical splendour was a feat in itself for me when we visited 18 months ago. I don’t like heights or enclosed spaces, and at the time I was suffering panic attacks for inexplicable reasons. I didn’t need to create a reason to have such an attack thousands of feet above the valley floor. But, as mentioned in a previous post on my Fuji experience, it was either ride the Ropeway with my partner and friends or be left behind at our hotel.
So, arming myself with everything I thought I’d need to distract myself from the tyranny of anxiety, I embarked on as high above the Earth a journey as I’d ever experienced. And I managed it just fine.
The happy result is these, and other, images which remind me if I hadn’t stepped up I would have lost out.
What have you done to step out of your comfort zone while travelling. Let me know. I’d love to hear about it.
Thanks for visiting …
